What parts are needed to convert a metric FAL carbine to a Para model? I know the lower must be changed, but I am unsure what other parts will need to be changed to complete the conversion.
Any help is appreciated.

Para specific parts:
Lower receiver ( a standard lower can be modified easily to para configuration)
Buttstock assembly including mounting bolt
Rear sight assembly
Body cover (also called a top cover)
Bolt carrier
Recoil springs (including the inner coil spring guide)

The upper receiver must be "para cut" if surplus Para top covers are used. DSA sells scope mount para top covers that do not require the para cut in order to be mounted.
