The Israeli LB kits at PSA are on clearance for $299.99 and DSA has Israeli receivers in stock currently. Unfortunately the DSA barrels are out of stock. Anyone have a source for barrels?

PSA Izzy kits

DSA type 1 receiver

Never built a FAL but I ordered on of those kits a few days ago. I'd like to get the forged lower when its in stock. I have no idea what barrel to look for.

They say the barrels will be not much longer and haven't mentioned ETA on the Hebrew marked receivers. They have type 1 receivers in stock if you don't care about the markings.

ETA: just saw your waiting for the forged receiver.

I just got my $299 PSA kit. it looks pretty good. I think everything is there. No muzzle device. The 6 mags I got also look good. Unmarked.

The receivers in OP are back in stock. -1

If it's a real Rhodie barrel it's probably worth a few bucks if it's not worn out.

I rolled the dice on one.  I seen pictures of the kits and they look like type two kits, but I see DS Arms has a type 1 receiver for these kits.    I already have an Imbel barrel with a gas block.  

Does anyone know for certain if the Israeli light barrel front site parts, gas tube, gas regulator, and gas plug, fit the Imbel gas block?

You'll need to swap the Izzy gas block for the Imbel.

Got my kit today and it's really nice and either never fired or fired very very little. I immediately jumped on PSA's site and ordered another. Hell of a deal for 300 bucks.

Lucky you lol. Mine's definitely seen some use. I have a vertical takedown lever, and no muzzle brake in my package. A buddy got the opposite- horizontal and brake.



I like it though- it's got some patina and I don't have to care about tool marks as I reassemble it.
Link Posted: 8/5/2020 4:56:27 PM EST
Thanks.
Link Posted: 8/6/2020 7:44:12 AM EST
So with the vertical takedown lever would a lugged barrel be the correct model?

Picked one up. New to FALs

Yours looks alot like mine. My hand guards are terribly mismatched, two completely different colors. PSA told me "oh well" when I asked about it
Link Posted: 8/7/2020 5:52:21 PM EST
Mine kit came in tonight.   So far kit looks to have seen moderate use.  Handguard wood does pretty much match.   Handguard metal was damaged/bent.   Was able to get it back to close to normal.  Stock is in pretty good shape.  Needs a good cleaning.
Will see how it fits once I get  it all together whenever that may be.    Have not looked at rest of parts, jumped on the handguard right away.
Guess for the price can't go wrong.  Now if DSA would get those barrels restocked and get my receiver sent I can get going on this bad boy.

Gotta time the barrel, and use a pin gauge set to find out what size locking shoulder you need to buy.

In this case, gotta buy a $350 barrel along with a $450 reciever.  Locking shoulder costs extra.
Link Posted: 8/7/2020 6:10:17 PM EST
Will a barrel like thiswork or do we need the lightweight Israeli one?

My kit arrived today.  The metal parts are in great condition with most of the finish.  Handguard are matching and the wood is nice with a few dings.  Carrier has most of the finish with I think is a Belgian proof mark.  The bolt face looks unfired. The lower is a type two with a vertical take down lever and has no numbers.   The stock has repair on top by the buttplate with a few gouges, is dark, and lots of nasty crud.   Missing was one hand guard spacer.

Mine is missing one spacer as well. I think yours was supposed to be missing both, I'll send shipping instructions.

$350 dollar barrel?  DSA lists them at $125 for the Israeli barrel. Close on the receiver though, Mine was $414.

ETA- Locking shoulder is included with the kit. You can generally trade it for another size on the FF if needed.

 A lot of the Izzy light barrels were issued with only one spacer, Izzy heavy's always had two to the best of my knowledge.

Got my second kit today and very happy again for a $300 kit. This one appears to be earlier production (14XX serial) and it's a lot dirtier than the first but everything so far looks to be in good shape and all parts are present.

Has anyone tried to build a 16" para with one of these kits?? I realize this is probably blasphemy but it could be pretty rad.

Kit #2 arrived today. Better than the first one. The finish was in good shape, the wood was cleaner than the first, a few scratches and dings. The lower had the horizontal takedown lever and included the muzzle device.

I had planned on squirreling this one away, but will probably put it together as well. Resisting the urge for a third.

ETA: It didn't dawn on me until I started moving parts to the new receiver.

Hmm,
The only barrel I have is a 16” and I DO have a para lower, bolt carrier and topcover sitting here...

I caved and bought a 4th kit this afternoon and they went out of stock a couple of hours later.

 Gone..All gone.

Me too.   4 and 5.  Nearly went ahead and bought the last one but I had to hold back.   Wife was giving me the stink eye...

I used a bunch of those to make a trophy for the FAL match back in 2005.

Kit number one is starting to look like a rifle. Still need to drill the barrel and measure headspace to get a locking shoulder.

Looks good!!!
I ended up sending mine to ARS, my barrel was going to need some lathe work in order to "time" right.

I just picked up my DSA Israeli receiver from the gun shop. Barrel should be coming any day now. I just need a receiver wrench.
