The SA 58 is truly a unique looking gun, it is basically a tactical compact FAL. This gun features a 10.5 inch barrel with vented front hand guards and a full stock. The body is CNC machined steel which not only makes the gun look good but it also feels solid. The charging handle has a very strong spring to keep it closed so when the lever is pushed to release it there is a very loud snap made while closing. There are rotating sling swivels on the stock and the barrel so the user's sling doesn't get twisted and uncomfortable. Possibly the best feature on the rifle is the long rail on top of the upper receiver which will accommodate all sorts of different kinds of optics. Internally the gun is every bit as good as the outside, full metal hop up and gearbox with 7mm metal bushings. This could easily be called the best gun that Classic Army has ever produced.
Did you ever wonder, which rifle could be considered as Western counterpart of ubiquitous AK-47? Weapons aficionados often debate about this question and short list usually boils down to M14, G3 and FN FAL. M14's active duty was limited to eight short years, so it fails short in service time. Hecker&Koch's G3 -excellent weapon as it is- wasn't involved in any truly televised war in fails short in recognition; FN FAL is third candidate, which is by some (author of this review shares the opinion) considered as Western counterpart of Kalashnikov's design.
It has been in service for over 50 years; its reputation was earned in South Africa's bush wars; it was used by Rhodesian SAS; it was used by both sides in short but intensive Falklands conflict. FN FAL and its derivatives use a tried and tested classic design, which is soldier proof- which is as good as weapon can possibly get.
FN FAL was manufactured by FN Herstal (licences all over the world were sold to various governments) and were used by military and paramilitary forces of Argentina, Australia, UK, South Africa. Rhodesia and many more). FN FAL is typical representative of battle rifles. It is long, it uses heavy calibre (7,62x51), it is made out of machined steel, which makes it fairly heavy. Shorter versions of FN FAL exist; sometimes they were born out of necessity- Australian soldiers in Vietnam shortened down their full length battle rifles to carbine length (model was affectionally known as "The Bitch").
