Im thinking of getting A DSA FAL, any advice?


Good eye! Those are cheap display models from china ( gift), but if you like the real thing.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE?(body armor)

Sorry for the derailing this thread everyone.


There’s always parts kit rifles!

Boom! Thread back on track!


Yeah I really do think it’s worth it. That’s only 50 rounds of .308 worth of ammo.


Sorry for the delay in the reply. I’m finishing a brake.



Would it make it any better if the brake was going on one of those rifles you don’t like?


So Coonan recievers are gtg but you dont recommend cast recievers? I thought Coonan only made cast FAL receivers?


@gunplumber is a top authority on FAL receivers, what to purchase and what not to


They are, but they have a much better quality casting and material. What I said is still true, a forged part will be stronger than cast, or billit for that matter. This reply is from a gal builder that is also a steel quality engineer.


I was just curious how that worked. Sucks that theres not really a market for FALs anymore.


One more thing to consider. The fal’s locking bolt does not have lugs that lock against the cast receiver like a AK47.On a AK After 2000 rounds your head space will be losing ground. The FAL receiver only has to hold the barrel and lock to the lower.


How do AKs go 50k+ rounds without headspece being an issue?


Walk when others run and run when others walk

yes, there is a lull in the market, so buy now before the next wave, take advantage.


Buy what? DSA is supposedly having serious quality control issues(accrding to Falfiles).


FAL is a fantastic weapon and if you are doing homework with intent to purchase we could likely narrow down the good,bad ugly, I know DSA serial # prefixes do tell a story, DS vs DSA I do not know about new inventory

But they are not the only option


Im still trying to decide what I want but I was strongly considering A FAL. I just dont know enough about FALs at this point. Is imbel on par with DSA?


Imbel is better in my opinion.


:face_with_raised_eyebrow: a real AK47 has a forged trunnion and will go ~30,000 before accuracy starts to fail (barrel). Can a AK47 run to 50k? Yes, but at what cost.
The Cheap AK47 that have cast trunnions are having bad head space problems, and that is a issue you don’t want.
But don’t take my word for it, always do your own research.


Im just going off of this. They get 80k+ out of Wasrs before running into issues.


Yes, and they have forged trunnions.
