The FARA 83 (Spanish: Fusíl Automático República Argentina; "Argentine Republic Automatic Rifle") was a rifle locally designed and developed in the 1980s. FARA-83 was mostly inspired by the Israeli Galil. Features include a folding buttstock and tritium sights for aiming in low light conditions; the rifle uses a proprietary 30 round Beretta AR70 magazines(early issue), and has a trigger group that enables semi-automatic and fully automatic fire. About 1500-2000 examples were made and delivered to the special forces between 1985-1988. The Army choosed not to replace the FM FAL with this one.
