Hey all, I’ve been in the industry a while and always wanted an FAL, so when a buddy told me he wanted to get rid of his I jumped on it.

He didn’t know the origin and neither do I, so I was hoping to get some input from the guys who know all about them!

How did I do?

Looks like a West German G1 kit assembled on an Imbel Type III receiver.
Very nice!

Awesome, thank you! I’m excited to get into the world of FAL.

Would you have any magazine recommendations? I’m not 100% sure how to tell if it’s metric or inch...

It is metric.

That is a nice looking rifle.

It's metric.
I'd get original military mags if you can find them in good condition.

Not sure about current mag availability or reproductions.

nice FAL!

Should be able to find some metric mags in the EE if you watch it.

I recently ordered some surplus mags from DSA.  Just keep an eye out

There're quite a few metric mags for sale on the FALfiles right now.

By the way, very nice rifle.

I just registered for the forums, thank you for the heads up! And thanks!

Recommend you get yourself a DSA semi safety selector. It has a stop that will prevent the selector from going past semi.

That is a nice rifle. Did you score some ammo?

Gorgeous kit, too bad it's on a Type 3 receiver. Enjoy it!

That’s a VERY nice score. And the Imbel receivers are some of the best available. Enjoy!
