Well I've tackled the AR-15 kits numberous times so I figure I'll try something a little different so I got in on the group buy thing over at the FAL files at fn-fal.com. got a Chilean Imbel made FAL kit for $220.00. not a bad deal I guess, the condition is not bad. finish is paint no park. most of the paint is worn but the parts are in very good shape, bore is excellent, I will use an Imbel reciever for an all Imbel gun. I'll have the parts parkerized. sand and sand blast the stocks for that stippled look. It should turn out ok anybody have any experience with these things?
any opinions? be nice
