As some of you remember, I recently got my Form I back from ATF. This is a Springfield SAR-48 that now sports a DSA 11" front end and old school Vortex flash hider.

I ran some South African and FNM ammo through this little blaster today and got a chance to run ten rounds of each over my chronograph. Muzzle velocity with M80-type ball is right at 2350 fps.

I'm actually surprised with the accuracy of this little rifle. With open sights from the bench I can get 2-3" groups (three rounds) at 100 yards. I thought with the reduced sight radius accuracy would be pretty horrible.

Well, I need to run a patch through the barrel. See you all later.

Video Link to SBR FAL in action!

The video is too short and has no sound but you'll get the idea. Note the lack of any muzzle flash. I guess that Vortex thingy actually works.

Very easy on the eyes. Can I ask how much the DSA front end set you back?

Did you have to open the gas reg all the way to keep it from battering the rifle (and you)?

The gun runs fine on "5." It will not cycle fully with the gas system open all the way. I did not have to modify the gas port from where it came from DSA.
