Can anyone confirm the going dealer price for the DSA STG 58A FAL Carbine? As I remember it was about $735 and $995 retail. Also does anybody have experience with this rifle? reliable ?well made? What accessories would you add? Thanks for your input! Raptor

Try posting this to www.fnfal.com/falfiles. However, the message board at fn is down at the moment.

DSA's "kit" FAL runs $995 retail, but you can get it mail order thru a dealer for $795 (he makes his transfer fee) IMO, the DSA FAL is the best gun $795 can buy. Fit and finish are beautiful. Functions flawless. ROCK solid. Adjustable gas. Mild recoil. CHEAP mags. AND its BLACK as well [:D] Get the DSA made scope mount top cover as well.

Actually, I think the FALfiles moved to L1A1.com AFARR

Garandman - Thanks for the info!! My FFL will order one today! I elected to go with the 16 inch carbine. I don't think I'll lose a great deal of .308 performance (accuracy/power). What do you think? I like the portablity that the carbine should give. I'll also get the DSA scope mount you suggested as well perhaps a Trijicon Reflex II. good match?? Thanks again!! raptor

My next FAL will probably be the 16" DSA. Sweet lookin'. They do say that teh 16" is LOOUUUDDDDD!!!!!!!!! And the 16" barrel doesn't affect accuracy that much, so I am told. The FAL wasn't designed to be a sniper rifle anyway. I WISH they would make a 16" FAl in .223. Now that would be kewl!!!! re: the Reflexx II - I LOVE mine!!! (mines an .40 S&W AR upper) It is IMO simply the best sight available, if you want BOTH short and long range out of your sight. I''ve never really thought about putting it on a .308. Should work fine tho. I plan to scope my FAL with teh Tasco 10x42 Super Sniper (I know - corny name. But GREAT scope.) with QD rings.

I posted chronograph results for a 21" and 18" barrelled STG kitguns on the FAL forum. Using milsurp, the difference in velocity was less than 25 fps per inch. Garandman, a few of us have been pestering DSA for a while to come copy the .223 version. Haven't heard any recent updates. We simply need more than the 1500 SAR-48/4800's that were imported.

Well, they DID make one, sorta...it was called the FN CAL if I recall correctly. Not many made it into the country. Don't see the appeal myself...you wind up with a rifle that's too heavy for the caliber.

I would prefer the Reflex II on a 16" and save the Super Sniper for a 24" Medium Contour DSA. [:D] Just joshing you. You can have whatever you want. I have a buddy with a 6.5-20x Leupold on a 10/22![:O] He can see those little holes at 50 yds with no trouble at all. Me, I kinda like the original sights on my FAL. I may put a scope on my next build, though. The DSA Stg58 kit rifle would be the route I'd take if I didn't prefer building them myself. My next one will be a FALFiles Imbel kit on an Imbel receiver with FSE HTS, Tapco piston, Penguin stock, IAI pistol grip, and Moses brake. Now if I can just get up the dough for the receiver and US parts.[:(]
