    The link in Post #14 was ~2001, since it's talking about Bill C-15B in the present tense.

    I missed the "from link..." first time around and thought it was something you wrote. Damn you RB, I had dreams of pretty awesome safe queen!

    We did have a batch of Belgium made metric pattern rifles for trials.

    The British round was not used in the American tests. It was thrown out at the insistence of the U.S who were busy jamming the 7.62x51 down the rest of NATO's throats. The U.S. threaten to take the money and troops out of NATO if they didn't get their way. Just like when they adopted the M-16 10 years later and jammed the 5.56 down other NATO countries throats. NOBODY wanted either rifle or cartridge.
    "...C1A1 built by Canadian Arsenals...." Longbranch plant in Mississauga, Ont. Same as our No. 4 Lee-Enfields, BRENS, et al. Still trying to figure out how the very last(documented as such too) C1A1 got released to civilians. The thing came though the shop I worked in long ago.
    "...us Yanks are happy with our M14s..." That's because you had nothing to compare 'em with.
    "...trashing all of their hopes for scholarships..." No such thing as a 'sports' scholarship in Canada. Pro careers in hockey don't come out of U.S. universities either. And FAL's were declared evil long before Rock was ever heard of.

    We can buy any model of firearm. I'm not a fan of the M14 or FN FAL but I have fired both and I would prefer the M14. I'd take an AR10 pattern rifle over either though.

    it's a tough call between the FAL or a REAL AR-10! The M-14 is ok but still #3 on that list.
