My son has an FAL. I have shot it and it is extremely accurate. I wish I had one, but, it is probably too late for me now. I do consider this rifle to be one of the best rifles for whatever you may need a rifle for. I just waited a little too long and now it will probably be next to impossible to ever obtain one. I did tell him that I am first in line if he ever wants to sell it, but, so far he hasn't shown any signs of doing that. And, he shouldn't! There is not much better!
