The standard assault rifle in the French army (including the Legion) is called FAMAS. For more info look at the sticky thread "Glossary".

It is the FAMAS
5.56mm nato round
can be adjusted for both left and right handers
Grenade firing attachment on muzzle
single shot abd burst fire,
Its pretty reliable as its a blowback weapon and not gas so less to foul up.
Built in bi-pod is handy too
