Accuracy?
 
So I'm thinking about getting a top rail and throwing a scope on my FAL. Anyone know what type of accuracy to expect?

21" barrel

.308 in a 21 inch barrel, fairly decent I would estimate.

Good, decent accuracy.... but the action of the FAL isn't conducive to exceptional accuracy.
The tilting locking bolt of the FAL can be affected by the pressure of rounds in the magazine which leads to inconsistent lockup. It will certainly be more accurate than iron sites, but not as accurate as putting the same scope on a rifle that uses a different method of locking the bolt.

Interesting! Thanks for that info. So you think if I were to shoot it single shot, I would get more accuracy than leaving a loaded magazine in? I know it's be a pain, but either way, it's got me curious.
