From what I've read ZeKeR, the FAL and G-3 are still used in places like Africa and the middle east. Personally I would think that in an open area like the desert that a 7.62 rifle would be preferred for it's long reach!
And not all FALs are select fire. The British L1A1 for example was reconfigured to be only semi-auto (just like the later modified M-14s) due to controlability issues!
Now what's your opinion on the HK G-3? I don't think much was said about this rifle.
