So I went from this:

To this:

The Vortex went to my LWRC M6 and my FAL has an Aimpoint M2 w/magnifier combo. This set up is temporary. I have two scopes coming in, a Leupold MR/T and a SWFA SS1-6. The FAL will get one, my SCAR17s gets the other. Even with this combo the FAL still shoots pretty good, but I haven't pushed her out beyond a 100yds. Some more pics:

Some really great looking rifles in this thread, I will add one of mine as my STG58 build is not photographed.

My retirement present from my CO was this Imbel barreled Para receiver that I had DSA finish the build as you see it and I added the EoTech.

Here's mine.  Ran irons for about 4 years or so whie decidiing wich optic to go with and how I wanted to mount it.  2moa t-1, VLTOR rail and absolutely zero issues.  I did change out the rail covers to tan ones.

Nice rifles! This one took almost ten years to be completed. Had a horrible run with two different gunsmiths.

Leapers Full Size AO Mil-dot Scope, 1 x 4-16 x 40 scope. Leapers AccuShot Premium 1-Inch Weaver Style See-Thru High-Pro Rings, for scope not to hit handguards and they need about another 1/2" in height to give me the needed clearance to really be "see through" :(

Bushnell TRS25

Link Posted: 3/8/2013 3:41:04 PM EST
Ghetto, how does the Bushnell handle the recoil of the .308?  Any problems like too light out in the sun, heat, turning on or off?
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 4:05:26 PM EST
The SureFire will be removable but I'm not sure which optic I want to leave on. The 3x Red Star or the 1x Trigicon Tri Power? This will be my 100 yard hog gun and 50 yard hog gun for night hunting I made the mount and used a quick detach mount with a modified Red Star mounted to it. The Trigicon pics were taken before the matte black was applied. The QD mount will hold an ACOG also but that's for a future purchase. Heck I've got a range finding scope I could put on there also......... ahhhhhh the possibilities are endless

Hey Painter, your IM mailbox is full.

Was going to ask you a question about using the ACOG on the FAL....
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 11:04:46 PM EST
Honestly this picture sucks but I just zeroed my FAL today with a scope for the first time.  It is a 3-9x Bushnell that I have had for probably ten years.  
Link Posted: 11/16/2013 6:28:51 AM EST
The scoped FAL was done by DSA and has DSA's stainless steel upper and lower receivers, a NOS Argentine barrel, DSA hand guards and scope mount, a Guncoat finish and DSA's "Speed Trigger."  The second is my best attempt at an Isreali FAL.  It was done by Gunplumber and has an almost new Steyr barrel and Gunplumber's proprietary finish.  My intent with the scoped FAL was to build the most accurate FAL I could WITHOUT resorting to the following:  match ammo (I currently use Port Ball); free floating barrel (I wanted the original configuration); any other exotic parts.  The purpose for the Izzy was much more straightforward:  to build the coolest looking and most accurate battle rifle I could.  Again, I'm using Port Ball.  Both guns might benefit from using match grade ammo, but that's not their purpose.

I recently took both to the range to sight them in.  When it was all said and done the Israeli printed consistently in the 2-3 MOA range.  The scoped FAL was a different story.  It consistently printed 1.5-2MOA all day.  Below is my final group shot at 300 yards from a bench over sandbags.  The scope is a new Leupold 3-9X40 Patrol with an illuminated Mil reticle.

The areas I concentrated on were: the barrel (I used the very best I could find without resorting to US made match grade barrels); tightening up the front hinge pin (I fit the largest I could WITHOUT resorting to any reaming and custom parts); I fit the rear locking lug so the lockup was a tight as possible; I paid extra attention to headspace and the locking shoulder; and on the scoped rifle at least I have the best trigger I could get.  The Izzy has a standard trigger that has been smoothed somewhat but is not nearly as good as the other gun's trigger.  Both guns have Israeli type sights:  rather crude and imprecise, but entirely useable.  Side by side with iron sights the scoped gun still beats the Izzy, shooting 2.0-2.5MOA groups during the sight in process.

Based on the target shown (a good example of the accuracy I was getting all day), the scoped gun shoots between 1.5 and 2.0MOA.  The next test will be at 400-600 yards to see if this holds up at distance.

STG58 with Aim Sports mount, Steiner PX4i in Warne medium height 30mm rings. So low that the cat tail throw lever ring has to be positioned between picatinny rails!

My nearly completed Century mutt, just need to add a camo paint job. Optic is a Primary Arms 1-6x ACSS mounted with Vortex low rings. It sits so low I had to notch the picatinny rail so the magnification knob can still turn.

very very nice set up!!
You plan cutting the Barrel and get a different stock?
