    Nice looking carbine. I've yet to build one with an 18 inch barrel. I need to pull the barrel on my Rhodie Para clone and have it shortened some time.

    These were all built when the kits and receivers were cheaper than you find today.

    I wanted a First Son. I've got one of theirs in my other FAL and like it a lot. Unfortunately, They do not make them anymore.

    The story I read at the files said that he really got screwed by his warranty policy. If anybody had a problem, he just sent out another set, no questions asked. The killer was that he didn't even require the return of the "defective" parts. It didn't take long for the low life's to abuse that policy for free sets and drive him right out of the trigger business.

    Nice looking collection there RetVet.
    This one is only number two for Me. I had only planned on building one, but, I needed to build another just to help justify the expense of all the FAL tooling I had bought. LOL

    My plan was to build just one too, then I came up with another kit and figured I'd build another for the same reason. I've got as much in tooling as I do to build one FAL (old prices). One thing led to another and...........

    I have more, but no pics handy. Too bad 308 sky rocketed in price. As such these sit idle with most getting test fired and nothing else.

    Only thing better than building a FAL, is shooting one.
    moses has my barrel as I write. He asked for $40 plus $10 shipping. Still a bargin IMHO.

    Thanks for the great tip on moses.
