Are Century Arms FALs with IMBEL receivers any good? How much would you guys pay for one??? Thanks

IMBEL-made FAL receivers are highly regarded. Whether or not the angry beavers at Century can assemble one correctly is an entirely different matter. You shouldn't pay more than $500 out the door.

I got a L1A1 by CAI with an Imbel rec. Shoots like a house afire! Nice refinish job and $427 [:D]

I've got one with the thumbhole stock. It shoots great but is nothing to look at. John

I've got an stg-58 with imbel reciever that Century put together. After 1500 rounds it still runs like a top. Everything looked like new except the lower reciever. For $450 it's one of the best deals going. Stock up on mags if you get one, DSA has them for $5 a piece. idaho-ar15

Love it! This is my main battle rifle. If the house was on fire I'll grab my AR. If I'm being invaded I'll grab my L1A1. [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1527374&a=11560808&p=54678145&Sequence=0&res=high[/img]

Who is DSA? Do they have a website?

I have heard some say that CIA are not to be trusted, but I have fired Deadeye47's L1A1 and it is very nice. Especially for $427 it is a lot better than I expected. Without adjusting the site (aka using kentucky windage) I was able to walk a gallon milk jug across the berm at 100 yards. Now that he has a nice scope on it I am dying to help him sight it in and see what it can really do. Also the cuncusion from the blast is pretty loud and powerful but i was very happily surprised with how little it kicked. I do not know if it is just the design of it or the muzzle break but it is very nice and I am considering buying one very soon myself.

Be careful! FALs (especially the economy ones) are like potato chips: you can't have just one. [img]http://www.hunting-pictures.com/members/Wadguns/FAL-Family2.jpg[/img]

What type of accuracy can one expect with a scoped FAl and quality ammo? I do handload as well, and can work up appropriate loads, but want to know if I should even try. I am building my first one & wonder just how far I should go in buying accuracy parts. Scott
