Definitely sweet! Guy next to me at the range was shooting it when I got there, it was the first time he'd had it out. First time I've actually seen one at the range. He was prior Army, said he got out a few years ago, and this was a gift from one of his friends. He let me shoot that, and I let him shoot my 03A3. I have to say, I did have to get a GOOD cheek weld and get down low on the stock to get my eyes in line with the sights. Didn't do too bad, I thought. When he shot my 03A3, he posted a helluva 5-shot group for 100 yards with an unfamiliar weapon. Wasn't centered, but they were all within 2-1/2"! Pretty damn good for just resting your elbow on the table if you ask me. You Army boys know how to shoot!

I was thinking about getting an M1A, but now I'm not so sure ....

Still get the M1a.

"FAL", "Right arm of the free world" - Path to the Dark Side they are.

FAL's rock!
Shot one a couple weeks ago, sweet rifle (was an SA too!)
Just one more gun to save up for.

How would you like to shoot this one?




I recently bought a 4" model myself, I love shooting it.

Aren't they great?

$10 mags, and cheap parts too. FALs are great.

If you get one I would get the humpback Austrian style stock. You'll notice it because it looks kinda funny, and has basically the top inch or so shaved off back to the buttpad. Gives you a better cheek weld with the iron sites and was the original design for the rifle I believe. Most FALs come with a regular type stock, but you can get aftermarket humpback stocks.

+1

Shot the 4" model with the 400gr Magtech load.
I swear every muscle in my hand spasmed after I shot it a second time, hurt for 15 minutes too.

I love mine! Still have the hogue grips on. I dont think I could handle it for much more than 30 rounds with wood grips....Yowzaaaaaa!!!

When you need a 7.62x51 to shoot everytime you squeeze the trigger, pick FAL. 90 countries did.

I couldn't decide myself between the FAL and M1A.



I got both.
