    I have an L1A1 that has been (at various times, all while in my possession) non-restricted, restricted, 12-3 prohib and 12-5 prohib. See how logical our gun laws are? - dan

    Dan,
    When did the FAL go from non-R to R?
    I forget when I got mine, but it was R ay that point.
    Probably around 1988 or so.

    They remind me of strip clubs. At first it's flashy and exciting, then it quickly becomes loud, smelly, and expensive...

    1992 they were made restricted by Kim Campbell and Bill C-17. In 1995 they were made prohibited 12.5 (at least my two) by Allan Rock and Bill C-68.

    They went restricted in the early 80s. 1982 give or take, when it was declared a "weapon of war"
    In reality it was made restricted when it was pointed out that you could make an FN go full auto by jamming a match stick behind the disconnect .
    All FNs except for American made ones are full autos, they just have a semi selector, some of them have had the safety sear taken out too. Thus the confusion between 12.3 and 12.5

    Wow, wish I could get a prohib. Someone remind me why Semi Auto only L1A1's are still prohibited? Technically, should the M14's not also be?

    Some are 12.2, 12.3 and 12.5.

    12.2 made fully auto from the factory. 12.3 fun switch added after and 12.5 semi only..

    My Grandfather had the 12.2 version they kept saying o thats a mistake it should be 12.3 and he would explain that he spent 10,000 on lawyers to get his rifle because it was full auto and it was from the Canadian military.

    Because they prohibited them by name since they were going to be surplus and cheap so they said you can't have that scary gun.. You can't have a semi auto tompson but you can have more modern firearms that are 100 times better. The laws are silly and messed up in allot of ways.

    Most of the Metric FN-FAL's are listed as 12-3 (I have seen a commercially made semi-auto only FAL listed as 12-3) and most of the L1A1's and 1A1's are 12-5
