FAL kits update
FYI, ammunitionstore.com has FAL kits but they've not updated their website to reflect current inventories. They still have Rhody FALs, but slightly different offerings -
They have Grade-2 and Grade-1 barrels, with or without mags, with either PLASTIC or WOOD stock sets. Since I'm going to replace the stocks I chose the cheapest Grade-1 kit, $169 each.
Surprisingly, their FAL kits are slightly cheaper (by about $10) than posted prices.
I'm motivated to get these due to the barrel ban nonsense. Not that it will matter for .308 barrels, but I want to be sure I have an "original" FAL barrel. Seems US-built .308 barrels would be more expensive than .223 barrels. But you never know!
To add to this, the "only" other FAL parts kits I can find that are reported to be in stock are from
- STG-58 and Rhodesian
- Imbel FAL kits
Ive never EVER heard anything good about Florida Gunworks....
No clue about the other...
SOMEONE on this board should help guys like me out...I gots no CC, and I dont wanna mail a MO in, for fear no kit will be available in the week it takes to get $$$ there...
Anyone wanna make $25-30 on me and spot me a kit and Ill pay w/MO...? \
*EDIT* no problems...I gotta kit taken care of now...

jp's right, stay far away from FGW.
classic arms has some STG-58 for 319.00 for standard grade. http://www.classicarms.us/
I kind of like your price you found better 169.00
Good to know!

DSA Arms still has STG58 Kits. Classic Arms told me they were out of the STG58 kits
Ive dealt with M G S they are stand up guy's.

I just got another Tantal from MGS, very nice people to deal with.
I too must say that MGS is a good company - have already ordered from them twice and received great service.
Someone had mis-typed my CC number on the order so it didn't go through... well, they tried to contact me 2 different way (phone & email) then when I got in touch with them they re-entered my number & finished order. This has happened before, and OTHER companies have simply cancelled the order, so I'm very happy with MGS.
