Actually, it's the civilian version, the Somali version was in 7.62x39, select fire, and used AK Mags. This one in in 7.62x51 (or .308, could use both, marked .308)  uses FAL Mags, and is semi auto only. There was also a 5.56 version that used AR Mags. Correct terminology is the Hyde Westero? IIRC.  Ingram tried to manufacture it and it didn't go well. Since you got the family right, you're up. Surprised you didn't pick up on the FAL mag though

I am sure you know the history of this carbine. Ingram could never step foot in Somalia because he was accused of stealing millions from investors.
