FN C1A1 Battle Rifle

Max has been able to get his hands on a number of FN C1A1 battle rifles which served as the Canadian Forces’ standard battle rifle from the early 1950s to 1984.  When it began to be phased out in favor of the lighter Diemaco C7 Max started pulling in some favours and secured a few dozen of the rifles.

The FN C1A1 is designed primarily as a personal weapon, it is a semi-automatic weapon which enables the operator to fire single shots at varying rates. The rifle can be fitted with a telescopic sight for sniping and long range fighting, and a bayonet for close combat.  It is an air cooled, gas and spring operated weapon. Feeds from a magazine, has an adjustable gas regulator, and fires from a positive locked breech.  The main components of the weapon can be disassembled and assembled by the user for cleaning purposes.
