Looks like an HK 90-something.

Did they make them that big? I've played with a .30-30 over 20 ga. I've had a few 24s, and even the 22/20s can get heavy. A 3006/12 would be one heavy beast! I sorely regret trading my 24c .22/20ga. Been trying to track another down.

I think they are about the same as an HK G3. Gotta remember how the spanish where viewed during the franco years. IIRC it was designed by a german after the war, when no one wanted to talk to spain.

Ummm, isn't that rifle in the picture an FN-FAL? Or part of the FN family at least? Definitely not an HK/G3/CETME relative unless I'm going blind.

I dig these old timey boomsticks!
That's some great shooting, Oddbawl. The three shot group looks to be about .5 MOA, and that's something else with iron sights.....hell, that's even damned good with a scope!

Say, which front aperture did you choose. I have a number of them to choose for with mine and have always preferred the cross-hair with the open circle in the center. I'm going to get out with mine this weekend.

I recently went shooting with my kids and grandkids and made a disturbing discovery. my degenenerative spinal disorder is continuing its work. And I will be switching over to a 223 as my new maximum for centerfire rifles and 410 for shotguns. With pistols I am still able to comfortably handle my 45 auto GM.

Sorry to hear about your health issues. I have some tendinitis in my right shoulder, and maybe a couple of minor rotator cuff tears to boot, and cannot tolerate as much rifle/shotgun recoil as I could at one time, although my issues are nowhere near approaching what you are facing. I can still shoot a round of trap or sporting clays with a 12 gauge, and shoot rifles in the 308/30-06/45-70 recoil level with no ill effects, but am no longer able to tolerate stuff like the 375H&H, 338 Win Mag, or bigger. Handguns, on the other hand, I can shoot all day. My favorite ones are the 45ACP, 357 Magnum, 44 Mag, and 500 S&W Mag. Nice having those elbows for shock absorbers, and also nice not having a stock slap you in the face while it punches you in the shoulder!!

A friend of mine, older gent (roughly 70), has arthritis and wrist issues. He used to be a hard-core IPSC competitor and shot thousands of rounds of 45ACP every year. Now he only shoots .22LR, period. We get together for "civilized 22 shoots" periodically. Nothing wrong with shooting a .22!!

Sorry to hear this. One suggestion if you hand load, try some cast lead in reduced loads. I've been using a 155 grain lead bullet over 7 grains of Bullseye for a fun soft load. All the fun of a 308 without the recoil.

I've been looking around locally for an inexpensive, used HD shotgun and have had no luck at all. I thought used Remingtons and Mossbergs would be all over the place

Nope.

Its an FN Fal. An exceptionally good and reliable battle rifle, that has been used by over 90 countries.
