Is this a reliable firearm and is it worth $1200.

What are the markings on the receiver? Is it a kit build? Are they all Isralie parts? Sarco had kits for 800-1200 for just the kits.

Probably well worth it, If its a DSA receiver you better get it.

If that is a real IZZY FAL, it is worth every bit of that!

Nice looking weapon. Might be worth that even with a Century receiver. Nothing is cheap these days. Nice walnut buttstock.

I read that Century arms made Izzy fal and I read somewhere else that early century fal had feeding problems because of unibrow feeding ramp. Did they make izzy fal with unibrow feeding ramp?

I've got about $750 invested in building my Izzy FALO that I pretty much pieced together from parts acquired from trader boards, Sarco, Tapco, Gunthings, and GPG. My Izzy light barrel was a bit more expensive, but still cheaper than what one could be had for these days.

Ok so I went to the shop today and found out it was a springfield and I put a down payment on impulse was that a bad idea.

Not a bad Idea at that price. Since its Springfield then the receiver should be made by Imbel. In the current market with Imbel receivers at $550+ and decent shape Izzy HB parts kits at $750+ you didn't do too bad.

If it was built by Springfield then the parts should be in decent shape. Some of the barrels in some parts kits were really rough but there were new barrels available. On a side note, if it was built by Springfield, they didn't rethread the Israeli barrels to match the receiver threads. They forced the 26 mm threaded barrels in to the one inch threaded receivers. Not a big deal if you never have to change the barrel.

I saw one recently at a show, all Isralei parts on an Imbel receiver for $1400. This thing was beautiful!
