My old beater...

This one was built by ORF in 2003. Imbel kit on an Imbel GL receiver. Shortly after I acquired it, I sent it to VOW to have the barrel cut down to 17.5". This was during the AWB, so I didn't have the barrel threaded. As this was primarily a truck gun, I didn't have any use for a brake or flash hider anyway. A few years later, I bought a para kit from DSA and it's remained in that configuration ever since.

It doesn't get as much use these days since I've burned through most of the cheap South African surplus I bought back when it was cheap and plentiful. I wish I had bought a LOT more.

Wow, I hate following that beautiful Ausse, but here is mine...

It does have a very early matching Stg kit made in Belgium on an Imbel receiver.

Is that an Argentinian FN-49 chambered in .308? If so I envy you

Very very nice pics, thank you for sharing. The FAL is one of my most favorite weapons (i guess for obvious reasons ) I'm in the process of acquiring a license for one myself. I guess this is the to go to place when i finally have it.

Who said FAL's have to be ugly and above MOA shooters? It was not me. I believe this configuration of FAL to be the best overall SPR that can be put together in terms of reliability ,durrability and accuracy without stepping up to ,338 or.50 BMG..
This rifle started with a new Imbel barrel. I redesigned the bolt carrier ''sorta'' to eliminate next round pressure and misalligned pressure with the chamber, fixed the trigger, enlarged and polished the rear of the chamber to stop flattened tips, using the rail interface handguard eliminated barrel vibration, recrowned the barrel with a target crown, and added a rubber stop to soften the bolt cycling.
With match ammo I can get MOA groups, 3/4'' on a few occations and with surplus and cheap ammo I get 2-3'' groups .

I started with an SA barrel and added the bipod band, cut the key and threaded for the flash hider. I did similar work on the G1 but added the dovetail for the flash hider on it. All of the donor parts came from the cut up BGS barreled receivers Apex is selling.
