You will probably want to build on a metric Imbel receiver. Parts for inch guns are more scarce and thus cost more generally. Tapco is a good supplier for FN/FAL parts: www.tapco.com Also, there are 2 video tapes worth getting. One is from Arizona Response Systems (www.arizonaresponsesystems.com/) and the other is the AGI's FN/FAL armorer's course.

I've had one built by www.azexarms.com on an imbel receiver. Beautiful and accurate rifle. I'd highly recommend them.

Definately www.fnfal.com is the place to go. I am a reg there. (Ak_guy) I usually sell some FAL shirts, look for the thread in the general Discussion area.

Anyhow I have a Metric STG-58 kit on a IMBEL CAI receiver. Got Hermit at the Fal Files to parkerize it for me and she is sure sweet! Beautiful gun!! Gotta love a .308

Some of those guys over at the "falfiles" are pretty picky.

You might mention help on a "FAL" when posting there. Not the FN FAL which is the pre-ban rifle.

This is exactly the info I need. I ordered Arizona Response Systems video and work book. www.cruffler.com has some good info on tools and receivers.

www.fnfal.com and its forums are EXCELLENT!

Thanks guys. HW
