    Any FAL folks here?

    I recently acquired a couple of FALís from an estate sale. I had them checked out by Vince at Mesa Kinetic who does a fair amount of FAL work to make sure the conversions were legal and put a few boxes through each realized why these rifles were so prolific.

    Anyway I have been an AK and AR owner and had no prior experience with these rifles. I have been surprised to see very little mention in the forums and figured it was time to ask around. Whatís going on with the FAL owners in LA?

    They probably spend some time over a the falfiles. I used to have a pod of them, but the shine wore off as I could only shoot one at a time. Sold down to a para fal, that is just too handy to find itself going anywhere!

    I, too have delved in AR's and Ak's. Love the AR's, love to hate my AK. The AK just has a weird recoil impulse....not like painfull....just strange in my opinion. The FAL is lighter then my AR10 and shoots almost as well. Not as accurate, but probably more reliable. The last of the main battle rifles will live a long time!!

    I pulled out my STG58 recently to test a mag last week. Mostly wanted to test the reportS that Malaysian L1A1 had hard primers and were thus performing inconsistently. I did indeed have problems with the mag ammo combination, but when I switched to a known good mag the problems disappeared. So for me, Malaysian is good to go.

    Probably 8 years ago or so there was a strong FAL group here, but I think people moved on to other platforms or they had a life change. I like the FAL, but it’s heavy. Not a rifle I see parting with.

    Built a lot of fals over the years. Great rifles. I have a handful of various type, German, S African, Argentine, etc. Some on DSA receivers and some on the old Imbel receivers.

    Great guns, and this reminds me I have 4 that need to be refinished!!!

    Time to take some guns apart!
