    Default FAL recievers

    So where's the current action? As in whos has any to sell? A friend was asking about building one and I haven't been paying attention to the FAL scene lately.

    I got one from NoDak Spud/DCI about a year ago and I think ORF has them.

    Last time I remember seeing anything about FAL receivers was DSA had a 3-4 month waiting list (Falfiles.com).

    Seemed that most didn't mind the wait for the best FAL reciever available.

    You mean they have actually finally produced one? I didn't think it would ever really happen. They've only been promising them for what, at least two years now.

    Anybody considering using an ORF, Keep in mind they do not have an ejector block. Unless you are a accomplished FAL smith (and have a spare ejector block) I would stay away from them. Proper ejector block location/installation is critical to a reliable rifle and from what I understand, requires a special jig to install.

    I used an Imbel receiver for my last FAL build, very nice but are scarce and pricey. I still have another kit to build, but I'm waiting until the feeding frenzy is over. All those $149 kits that Akron and Dan's sold last year have put a high demand on receivers.

    I've just seen them on their web page when I was on there buying AK stuff. I don't know of anyone that has built a FAL on one though. I've built on two DCI receivers though and they are jut like their stamped AK rec.s.....Top Notch.

    I would go with a name brand like Dan Coonan or DSA before I would even consider the "the dream of" FAL receiver ORF is going to make ...in the near future, if the sun is aligned with the planets, etc, etc.

    I've got several FAL builds on Coonan receivers all went together no problems didn't need to worry about lack of heat treating or missing ejector blocks either!!!

    Officer...The devil made me do it.....thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
