Anyone own a FAL? I've been looking into them but haven't found a retailer for them here in the US whole just found part kits. If you own one or have shot one what are your opinions on them.
Actually, it's not all that loose, if you consider the early milled AKs. Between my Galil and milled AK, many parts are interchangeable. Tapco G2 FCGs drop right in.No. The Galil is based, loosely, on the Klashnikov system,
I own a kit-built Galil para in 223. It's OK. But I'd just as soon have an AK with a folding stock, as it is much lighter than a Galil. But you asked about the Galil vs the FAL. Between the 2, I'll take an FAL. The ergonomics are slightly better. The gas system on a FAL is controllable, even to the point of turning it off. It is even easier to field strip an FAL than it is a Galil or AK. The length of pull on a standard FAL fits me better. With the correct dust cover, you can load an FAL with stripper clips. The stock weld on a Galil para sucks. The safety on my Galil is backwards from every rifle I own, except for my CZ ZKK series rifles. Plus, I just shoot better with a FAL.Phil,
Have you shot a Galil? Which did you prefer the Galil or FAL and why?
Does anyone import non-auto Galil's?
Some are better than others, but for the price you can't touch them, Hands down!!! And are chambered in a battle proven round that kills'em dead, why would you want anything less? I have to agree!!!have to throw my 2 cents in....FALs rule the world...best firearm ever made
