I just noticed this Gunbroker auction:
I did not know DPMS made FAL receivers. I'm going to have to check into this.

They must have relisted it because I saw it for sale at least a week ago. The receiver looks cast to me.

The Logo and markings on that receiver are ugly, ugly, ugly. Most FAL builders tolerate the DSA markings only because the receivers are such good quality. I don't think I'd buy a DPMS FAL receiver after seeing what they look like.

I can't find them on their web site. Anyone have a link?

I saw that too! I searched around but dint find anything that jumped out. I guess I'll wait for a "spud" for my STG58.

IIRC, DPMS came out with these around 2001 or maybe a bit earlier. The early ones had all sorts of problems with the locking shoulder cut being way off and various other problems as well. DPMS was looking to expand into the FAL market with these, but I think they dropped them after a year or so due to poor sales. Brownells used to carry them, but I haven't seen them advertised for a few years now. Do a search over on the FALFiles, I'm sure you will find several threads on these.
