I just got the Century FAL R1A1 and it seems okay. I have only fired a few rounds through it but it had a couple minor problems that I suspect will work out once broken in. I got mine through J&G and got the metric as mags are easier to find and I really didn't see any advantage to the inch FAL. The last time I looked, SOG only had the inch listed. I am thinking about getting another one but it will have to wait.
