Considering they have pistol grips? Because I've seen a few for sale on arfcom and calguns. Or do the pistol grips just have to be removed?

And why do they seem less popular than other rifles such as M1A's or FAB-10's? Or am I just living under a rock?

FAL - must be non-FN receiver, and either have a fixed magazine or remove the pistol grip.

M96 - no pistol grip.. apparently the DOJ has given them problems with it being too similar to some other gun, so the grip rule might have changed.

I saw an interesting statistic on the Falfiles. California has the second or third highest amount of FAL owners in the US after Texas. Cool

yeah just that if u deside on buying a complete rifle from someone out of state good luck trying to find an FFL that will do the transfer.

I'm the proud owner of a FAL but i had to build it myself for that same reason.

Those 10 round mags are hard to seat properly.

Try putting in one of the 5 round magazines!

gunrunners in monrovia (626 358 7711) , has some m96's in stock.. if you guys are ok with the lack of grip thing..

for the fals, DSArms.com , they make a calistan version of a fal.. looks like precalistan, but yea, the magazine is fixed and yoiu will never know it.. until you load it. my latest research shows that a stripper clip will load the mag with the bolt open.. ...

heres a link to the thread... and they are available in cali..

actually if you guys arent registered in this thread you wont be able to view it..

Yes, I have to throw away 1 out of 4 of those crappy 10 round to prevent FTF or seating problem. But once you find the correctly made one, they work like a charm. At least its better than feeding stripper clip

I got a DSA Cali FAL also, but I will take my SOCOM any day.

The guy who built my stock does not want to do it anymore so I have to respect his privacy.
The Sage I have is a Cali version SecurityArms.com sells them for $600. I am working with Law483 to make a better tail stock for it. The current stock is for a Remington 870 and the LOP is rediculous.
