This is Lot 3763 in the upcoming RIA December Premier auction.
When the FN FAL was first being sold, many militaries that bought it opted to mount optics on a small percentage of their rifles. These military setups used a variety of different optics and mounts, and led FN to develop their own OEM solution. By the 1970s, the FN industrial conglomerate including an optics workshop, and so they produced their own 4x optics for the FAL and FNC rifles. We have an example of one here today, a 4x28mm FN scope on an FAL. Note that the lack of specific designation on the BDC cam indicated that it is a 7.62x51mm BDC; the ones intended for 5.56mm in the FNC rifles are marked “SS109”, “109” or “92”, depending on the 5.56mm loading they are calibrated for.

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
