    I bought one 5 years ago and love it. Shoots well out to 600 yards - thought I did change the rear sight for the smaller peep.

    Not Cool guys, I'm already addicted to building a few rifles a year then there is the NFA addictation with the SBR and suppressers and those add $200 every time now you guys are suggesting that I know get into building even more rifles. Man my wife is going to be pissed

    Being a century rifle it might work, it might not. Being a FAL, once it works it'll never stop working.

    If you want a FAL, get one. If it doesn't work, register on FALfiles, they know their rifles amazingly well.

    I purchased mine from a Gunco member a few years ago. It's a CAI build and it has worked flawlessly, very accurate.

    I have owned three CIA FAL's. Mine were all great rifles. I was forced to sell my Fal"s to pay bills. I will buy another CIA Fal, when we get a new man in the white house.===Carolyn
