|What is an FAL Match? Every year in the spring RBGC plays host to a match celebrating ‘The Free World’s Right Arm” the FN- FAL rifle. Issued to troops of over 80 countries, the Fusil Automatique Léger (Light Automatic Rifle) or FAL was created by the famed Belgian armaments manufacturer Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN), and manufactured under license in many countries around the world. The semi-auto version is still quite popular among civilian shooters.|
This rifle has a dedicated following of River Bend members who created a match specifically to challenge the capabilities of this unique rifle. Including both target and "action" stages, the FAL Match at River Bend is a truly unique, exciting, and fun match! Keeping with the spirit and purpose of this match, only FN-FAL type rifles are allowed.
