i had three FALs i bought back in the late 80s early 90s two metrics and one aussie inch pattern . ironically i think i paid more for the inch than the metrics-- the metrics were $240 each with the tri-lux scope-- these were military surplus too not century re-builds.
i think i paid close to $300 for the inch pattern with no scope-- thought i got burned. LOL! they were all semi. probably could have got a full auto one for the same price not counting tax stamp fee--
when my boys grew up i they got um.
only problem i can recall is they ate up that 308 ammo!
damn this is an old thread-- LOL
now a CAI out shooting a DSA? i'll have to SEE that--
