One of the guys I know in reenacting is a Major in the US army.  Before going to Iraq, when he was a Captain, he found a stash of wood stocked M14 rifles.  He then equipped his entire company with M14 rifles before they left for Iraq.  :)
a very wise man.

I once met a guy at sanicle airshow, he was pretty old, but he was one of the guys who went to the USA with the FN FAL for testing. US army soldiers liked it during testing, yet the FAL still got rejected. Like almost all of those US soldiers= Say WHAT?

They loved the accuracy and firepower. The M14 was also a very good rifle, but the FAL just looked bad-ass




A gaint collection argentine FAL's. There fate? All used by british troops because the argentines had automatic FAL's and the british only semi-automatic

 the british trololoolololed there brass by not destroying the FAL's and infact use them

Aaah yes, both sides used fals in that conflict IIRC, the british ones only had semi auto mode though, when they found out the argentines had fals that did full auto aswell the choice for the soldiers was quickly made, and suddenly, full auto everywhere! :D

A policeman takes position during an operation against drug traffickers at the Complexo de Alemao slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Friday, Nov. 26, 2010. Military armored vehicles continued Friday carrying police and navy soldiers into the heart of gang strongholds, chasing gunmen into nearby shantytowns.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Yes.
And the Indian police use rifles that are over 100 years old.

The term you guys are missing here is Design people, those are not 100 year old, they where designed then. That is all. They could be build many many years later. and had many parts replaced with brand new stuff.

It would not surprise me if the Indian police actually use SMLE's made in 1910  :P
