The FAL is a true battle-proven weapon. The British were using it in the Falklands War and did so very effectively.

I would pass on the folding stock. It increases the recoil and abbs a seconed interal guide rod, follower, and spring. If you have a mil part gun I would change the 4rail barrel out with a dsa new 6 rail. Add a recoil buffer and single pice firein pin. A hand gard rail system would be nice. And do a triger job in it the 6lb pull is a nucenc. Muzel brakes are nice I have one from yanky hill and one from klashnicav.

ahole,

Is that an original Fabrica National Model! That is a nice rifle you did great if you got into it for a reasonable amount! Here is my Fabrica National FNLAR NM 7.62X51 (308) with the Original Armson OEG I purchased purchased both New in 1985. I have had it a Quantico VA. for one Sniper School several years ago using a scope on it and it performed flawlessly. Just wanted to compare it to my issued rifle.
Any more FN Pics out there?

03 nice. I like the type 3 lower. I had 400 tied up in a ruger mini 30 stanliss yes nice but had a cracked bolt and would not fire every other shot ruger told me it would cost 270 to get it fixed. So it was on the chop block I traded it even for the short fal. It is a mut, dsa barrrel british bolt and carrie, imbal recever, FN lower.

Now the long one I got when I was 17 from a neighbor. Paied 500 for it and scope and 15 mags. It is a stg58 styer parts on an FN receiver.

ahole,

I am very familiure with DSA out of Illinois! They make some fine FN style rifles. In fact when I worked for a weapon manufacture as their National LE Rep. We did not have our 308 AR ready to go out at the time and I referred a lot of people wanting a quality 308 Semi Auto Rifle to DSA and Springfield.
The owner of DSA through one of his workers inquired as to why I would do that! I advised that our rifle was not ready to go at the time and I thought they made some of the finest FN style 7.62X51 (308) rifles in the industry! And they do if anyone is interested in the FN LAR style weapons and some neat models!
You have some fine rifles there! One of my grandsons will inherit mine some day. It has about 700 rounds through it since 1985. I need to get it out of the safe and warm it up soon! Maybe blow the cobwebs out of it!

I've been happy with pop's Argie. I peeled a 4" group iron sights off my elbows at 200, with junk ammo and trigger.
He's got a long reg and short para Belgian unfired in the safe. Paid around $900 each for them back before the ban.

How much is a DSA/STG build nowadays?
