Most of the Canadian FNC1's were simply destroyed... As I know, they were kept in poor storage conditions
I would assume that they were destroyed. At one time some OPP FNs that were Canadian C1s were disposed of by being sold to a company in England. Much to the OPP's surprise they were sold back to an importer in Canada then to civilian hands. That did not go over well. They can be identified by an OPP stamping on the receiver, I remember seeing one at a gun show years ago.
I have no life
I had a new one of the 8L C1's that came back into Canada beautiful gun. I sold it to a collector that paid me a crazy price even back then. In the FRT file they don't list any full-auto 1A1's.
Any of the ones I have owned were all 12-5.
HELP! I sold my soul to the internet
I have one of those....nice rifle. Never fired it.
One shot one tequilla
Death from a bar....

As much as I want one of those rifles they are prohib12.3 what a disappoint.
Did I mention that I hate our gun laws?
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.
Fall of 1983. I registered my originally FA (Full Auto) Belgium FN FAL (Portugese Contract) as a restricted weapon a few months before the new regulations came into effect.
In 1992 I re-registered it as a CA (converted auto) a few months before the October 2nd, 1992 deadline.
I have no life
I have had FN FALs and L1 A1s, the only 12-3 I have run across were Israeli FN FALs.
There arn't many Verifiers that could tell you the difference between CA and a Semi-Auto FN. I am a Verifier because there isn't anyone around here that could verify military firearms. I tried to get guns verified when the system was up and running, and I got frustrated with some of the Verifiers they would send people over to my house to identify firearms. So I became one.

Believe me that is no place to live and have a family.
