FAL = 308
M16 = 223

How the hell does that work?

Monel: Its a complete conversion, they change the barrel, bolt and add the magazine adapter to make the FAL fire .223 instead of .308. The only downside is that for the FAL the upper is the regulated part, so you cant swap calibers without rebarreling the receiver, unlike the AR.

Is this cheaper than buying an FN FNC?

Should be! i just thought it would be an interesting conversion. to have right along
with Ar15/M16 weapon's i know i love the 223 for
carbine version's like this, i would think it would be awsome to have it also compatible using
same MAG's, also OPTICS switch from FN FAL to
AR15 and like, Has of FN FNC i have not seen
readily available one's around here even at Gun
shows, and if they did they would ask and high price for one.

I have both a FAL and an AR-15... performing the conversion you describe would give you the power for a .223 for the weight of a FAL; is that what you want? Not slamming, just curious

I saw an FN FNC 3 months ago and it was priced at $2000. I would think this would have to be cheaper.

I wouldn't want to carry around all that weight.

They have the benefit of an adjustable AK style gas system, EXTREMELY reliable rifle that is built like a tank, very easy to maintain. A heavier rifle blows to carry but is a more stable shooting platform. Yes the conversion is MUCH cheaper than an FNC. Go to FNFAL.com and go to the "build it" section of the forums for more info, the guy doing it has also made kits to use AK mags and shoot 7.62x39 as well as others.
