I took my new FAL out to the range, today. After reading all the possible problems with it, I was anxious to try it. Well, it worked great. I put 200 rounds through it without a hiccup. This included 2 full magazines fired as fast as I could pull the trigger, reload, and fire the next magazine. It shot a mag full of commercial SP ammo with no problems, either. I played with the gas settings and have it shooting at 4. This is an awesome rifle. I am very pleased with it. I got a keeper, here. It is something I would trust to protect my life.
Thanks for the suggestion Rew. Cammobunker, thanks for the link to take down instructions. I printed it out and bound it a small binder. Now, I have a full color take down tutorial.
Have I crossed the line from shooting enthusiast to gun nut? I love my Evil Black Rifle.
Welcome to the evil black rifle club. And yes you are now an official gun nut.
Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a memner of Congress...But I repeat myself......... Mark twain
Good to hear. Most FAL's should run between 3 and 6, so you're right on at 4.
DSA has mags on sale for $5.00 and you get a free spare mag spring with each one.
I don't know of a better deal.

You should have seen her, Folks.
All I heard when I met SD at the door of the gun show was CETME, CETME, CETME.
Then she sees that FAL and the money just leaps out of her wallet.
CETME was quickly forgotten--LOL!
I got some mags from dsa a while back and they were all junk. not one of them fed properly. I got some from gunthings, they were $9.00 each and all worked perfectly.
Can't blame her for that!!!! FALs are just classy rifles!!! S.D. I'm glad it's a keeper!!!Originally Posted by ZOID ZODIAN
