Does anyone have info on anybody that makes a target trigger for a fn fal stg58?

Right now, no one.

There are several people developing them but there are not any comercially available at this time.

For more info go to the FAL File. www.falfiles.com.

Rusty is correct. Harold Shinn of FSE has been working on a two stage target trigger for nearly a year now. He keeps claiming he is almost done and is predicting a price between $100 to $120.

The FAL trigger doesn't lend itself to target grade work. I'm not a mechanical engineer but I do know a fair amount about what makes a hammer fall and I can't figure out how it could be done. Whatever Harold is working on, he seems to be hitting snags.

There are ways to improve the pull yourself. Polish every bearing surface, including the pins. Be careful to NEVER change the engagement surfaces beyond polishing though. You can also improve things by replacing the trigger return spring with a sear spring. It takes about 2 to 3 pounds off the pull weight. This doesn't work on all lowers though. On some, it will not produce enough pressure the reset the trigger. Of my three FALs, three of them have the sear spring in place of the trigger spring. The other one has a DSA aluminum lower and it doesn't work on that one.

VandenBerg Custom in Houston can perform an excellent trigger job on a FAL.

Our very own Red Star Arms is currently in the process of having them.

Based on their AK triggers, I wouldn't expect anything less than KICKASS.

I was hoping someone would post info about RSA. I remember reading over on the FAL board a few months ago about them but haven't had time to get over there lately.
If they can produce something as nice for the FAL as they did for the AKs then I will definitely be in line for a few!
My SAR-2 has a set and it is incredible! Not only is it a quality setup it is designed to be reasonably user friendly. Anyone with the skill to install the trigger group can also make adjustments.
