I saw an FAL pistol in a gunstore today. The guy told me it was one of only seven ever made for the FBI. I could have sworn I had seen them before. Isn't it just a conversion you can have done?


Just curious.

and no you cannot make a rifle into a pistol. it has to be a virgin receiver and never had a stock on it. Other wise when you cut the barrel it would become a SBR.

Like the Ar pistols you have to start with a virgin reciver.



As far as the FBI story, I'd mark it up to gunshop BS.

There were some pics on Falfiles awhile ago showing a pic of a FAL pistol fireball...it was probably 2/3 as tall as the shooter...looked like a short range flamethrower!
