Where is the best place to get a complete FAL rifle? Also how much is th going price for one of these babys?

Is it feasible to build one from a reveiver and parts kit? If so who offers the best components?


Any input would be appreciatedas I would like one of these.

Thanks!

Hands down the finest FAL rifles ever produced, anywhere, any time.

As for the post above, he's talking about Austrian STG-58 kit guns that DSA sells. For a factory fresh gun, DSA's SA-58 line is the best of the best. Better than FN, better than everyone else. For kit guns, the DSA STG's are hands down the best of their class too.

The best place I have seen to get started with a first FAL is from FAC (Federal Arms Corp) www.gunsnstuff.net

They have a Imbel STG-58 Century rifle for $550.

The also carry the DSA STG-58A (very nice FAL) for $795

DSArms (DSA) arguably makes the best FAL's. Check them out at www.dsarms.com

Best site for FAL's is www.l1a1.com/cgi-bin/forums/ultimatebb.cgi

Learn there, buy from FAC.

Yep, they did, and I got one of their last IMBEL receiver models.

All they have now is Century made receiver models, and I have heard that those receivers are crap.

4 W. Gunner, first please define if you want a real FAL which is Belgium and is in the $2,000.
range.

If you want a sort of "American" version look no further than M4's recommendation.

The DS Arms receiver's are actually closer to spec than the Belgium guns.

I believe the Australian FAL's were made to last
and be rebuilt. Thr Belgian guns next, and the
South American ones the least. A good friend
of mine used to manufacture receivers and he told me the South American steel was inferior
to the rest, or at least the heat treating
was. I would definetly concur what M4 said and
buy the DSA. John

Go with DSA, you can't beat the STG58

Was checking out the DSA STG-58A.

Whats the difference between a Type-1 and Type-2 upper reciever?
Link Posted: 12/9/2001 4:14:16 PM EDT
The receivers differ by the lightening cuts
on the sides. a minor issue, since they are
parts guns anyway. The Imbel is a type 3 with no cuts. If you look closely at the outside of
the magazine well, you can see the cuts. John

I think hands down the Austrian kits are the choicest ones to be found. That is what DSA is using on their kit rifles. I would compare favorably an Imbel receiver to any other receiver on the market. But yeah, buy the DSA rifle, best value/price.
