    Well, since the dark days of 1988 when center-fire semi-auto rifles were restricted the elusive FN FAL was out of reach, no longer! Look what Watch Ryder buzzed in from the nearby FFL: SA 58 FN FAL! The Right Arm of the Free World descends, one of the Kings of the Battle Rifle calibers...

    So I have an Stg-58 with the DSA railed dust cover and standard full length barrel. I would like to put a long range tactical scope on it for overwatch duties. My question is, which would you guys prefer, a fixed power front focal plane scope on high rise mounts (with a possible cheek...

    The biggest buying blindspot right now are FALs. Everyone is so worried about their AR's and M1A's that there has been no real crazy price rise in FAL's. Receivers are still the same price, but there are not many of them. Mosins have gone up more than FAL's. Craziness. Just a heads up.

    Lets say that I have a "friend" and this friend wants to add some modifications to his DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL. What would be some good mods to add to the rifle? The first thing is a scope mount. The rifle is just a standard SA58 with no rail or scope mount on the dust cover. From what I was...

    Hi guys, My wife and I are in the market to buy some guns in order to defend our future Permaculture homestead out in the country. (However, we currently live in the city.) While we've already made our various handgun and shot gun selections, we now have to decide on a Battle Rifle for SHTF...

    I'am having problems with the front sight post of my DS Arms SA58 in low light. By "low light" I mean duck and dawn times - when the deer are moving. What I have noticed, in low light the post of the front sight fades in with the darkness - making it difficult to see. I got my new SA58 a few...

    Before we start on the range report of the DS Arms SA58, here is a little history on how we arrived at this point in time. October 21st 2010 I started a thread in the forum asking what is the best 308 rifle for the money. There were lots of suggestions thrown around, such as the Springfield...

    I have to say without a doubt the French (Oh yeah Belgium, same place) FN FAL! The only reason this rifle even became popular is because the US supported a mid caliber rifle for standardization of NATO.... Then the US not wanting to have a rifle of the same ilk as the rest of NATO and naturally...
  10. Firearms General Discussion
    Okay, I strongly encourage those with specific knowledge and well gleaned opinions (of the non-emotional kind) to add to this as we go. First of all the definition of the acronym "MBR." MBR = Main Battle Rifle or Modern Battle Rifle (It really depends upon who it is you are speaking with...

    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...
