    Default Built a FAL Today

    This was not my usual build, generally when kits come in they are pretty rusty & crusty and need a lot of tlc to build. this was a lot different, it was a box full of clean, new parts ready to build except for the lower. I put the upper together and the locking bar was the correct size, that was a first!! after blasting and parking the lower and some assorted parts I put the rest together. the Ace stock has more parts than the rest of the gun.
    the recoil spring and carry handle will be here monday then it is off to the bullet trap for some testing.

    That looks awesome. I really enjoyed my small time tinkering with the G3 build so far.. its nice to branch out and learn other stuff through massive error and small trial.

    Never ending awesome. Ill be bugging you im sure when i finally get around to my Mg42/m53 build!

    Cool build, I can't decide if I like the stock. Interesting concept.

    The stock is lightweight for sure.. but not a classic look.. I think the new ACE Socom stock would look great... B2B

    The fore end looks really outa place, and perportion, I don't care for that part but the rest is nice. I've never seen that folder before on a FAL. Neat.

    That should be a fairly lightweight para.
    I like the Ace straight bar style.
    Those are some great rifles to build and shoot.

    Looks great! The one and only I built the locking bar was the correct size as well.
