it is difficult to not buy a FAL!
i am in the same boat with the CETME. normally i would build it but kits are expensive and barrels are extra cost thanks to our idiot government cutting the barrels up. it looks to be less expensive to buy or trade for a century build and sort it out as you go these days.
i figure the odds of the FAL being "good" are pretty good. you may have to do some problem sorting to get it to run proper. and worst case-- i think J&G is pretty good about returns. i would call them and get their return policies before hand just in case they do send a turkey.
that is a good price on a FAL!
