LOVE those FALS!
I'm a bookkeeper's son,
I don't wanna shoot no one,
but I crossed my old man back in Oregon,
don't take me alive.
I have four FALs that I built myself. My first build was was Imbel/Imbel with Penquin OD furniture that I painted with European OD MolyResin. I refer to it as the Green Monster. I love it.
My second was a G1 that I built from a Tapco kit with a DCI Type 1 receiver. It has never cycled properly and I think the gas block may be the culprit. I can't decide whether to fix it or cannibalize it.
My third is an Izzy clone I built, also with a DCI Type 1. It has real Izzy stock, handguards and rear sight, with an Argentine barrel and a Tapco Izzy-style charging handle.
My fourth and favorite is an Aussie L1A1 I built that I think looks and shoots really sweet. It was from a kit I got from GunThings.com with an excellent bore.
I really love my FALs, but with the price of 7.62 ammo these days I'm going to start building AKs instead. I sure to wish I'd bought ten cases of that $139 Port when I had the chance.
