    I traded into this one on Sunday. So far, I've run two boxes of Wolf 150 grain and two boxes of DAG NATO without a hiccup. Now, field stripping is a bear because it's different from a conventional FAL in that the recoil spring is cramped into the dust cover around the fixed guide rod on the...

    I know that you cant judge something by a single occurence but... A box of Heters ammo just about blew up my friend's FAL. 1 rnd was fine, second smoked heavily (later found the base was split circumfrentially), third blew bolt open and the floorplate out of the magazine. HERTER'S has a...

    I've had my rifle for about 3 weeks by now. I was really impressed when I got it. It appeared well assembled. The bolt release doesn't work worth a crap, but from what I have seen that is the case with all FAL rifles. Your have to pull the bolt back a little to get the bolt to drop after it...

    I would like some feedback on which of these rifles is considered the "ideal " or "better " MBR. I am very familiar with the military M14 from my service time, but have no experience with the civilian M1A or the semi-auto FN-FAL. Please list pros and cons of each rifle. I am looking to finish my...

    Here's the deal: Which .308 rifle would you buy if you could only have one for a multi function rife? Choices are FN FAL ... AR 10 ... Saiga. I thought about the Cetme but the ones coming in from Century are crap IMO and others opinions it seems. The PTR or PT (i think thats it) seem like...

    I have several guns and a couple of SKS but plan to add a quality assault rifle. I want to get the gun , may-be red dot scope maybe laser and come in under $2000.00 I prefer the .308 over the .223, I can buy large supplies of ammo, so the added cost of the .308 is not an issue. I am now taking...

    So, I've finally decided to round out my firearm collection with a MBR. I can't decide between a M1A, PTR-91, and a FAL. I'm not rich by any means, so I need to pick just one. Points to be considered: reliability, cost of mags and parts, total rifle cost, and overall quality. Any suggestions...

    Ok does anyone know the difference between the STG 58 Austrian FAL and the in-house SA 58 FAL that DSA sells on their website (besides the SA 58 being over $500 more)? I can only see cosmetic differences in the photos. STG 58...
