I've been wondering how FALs feel when firing, as I've never gotten to fire one. My present familiarities are with M1 Garand, SKS, HK-91, AR-180, and AK-47. AK kicks fast but not with much force. I can feel the action moving, which makes it feel less stable and controllable. SKS kicks more smoothly, but about as hard. I find it more comfortable to hold and fire, including rapidly. HK-91 is VERY smooth, with muzzle brake it kicks less than the SKS, but sends out quite a shock wave. About as easy to keep on target in repeated fire. M1 seems quite smooth, not too loud. Kick is significant, but very bearable. Not too hard to keep on target, though I haven't rapid fired it yet. Can anyone describe how the FAL compares?
