Default FN FAL vs AR .308 platform

I purchased a box of gun stuff at a sale. Included in the box were several FN FAL magazines (metric version).
So I have to ask,
Which is a better choice for the .308 caliber: AR platform or FN FAL ??


I will either build an AR in .308 or look for an FN FAL metric to go along with the magazines

Personally, I like the FAL for the money.

Hmmm....

No roller-lock option for the HK fanboys (i.e. HK91/PTR91)?

No idea - I would guess no.

Do they work in AR10s?

FN FAL most definitely, you could build an AR but by the time your done you have something no better then the FAL started with, now if your looking to mall ninja said AR then that's different. but an FAL in stock trim is a Damn near perfect weapon... just my opinion.
