Are any Fal rifles out there around $500
worth buying? If not, where can the DSA stg rifle be found for the $800 wholesale price some people talk about?

www.l1a1.com/ This may help.

You can get the dealer price on a DSA STG-58A by using a dealer willing to cooperate. The dealer must be on file with DSA and he must agree to just charge you the transfer fee. Then you can call DSA and pay for the rifle and arrange shipping to your FFL dealer.

My FAL (Century) was $500 from www.aimsurplus.com and has been 100% I love it....

Of course, first thing I did was replace the gas piston and HTS.... but that was under $100 for both.

Don't ignore the Eagle AR10s.

A local dealer near me sells them for $837 + tax.

FAC (www.gunsnstuff.net) sells L1A1 Sporters for $389, Franken-FALs (Parts from all different countries) for $399.95, and DSAs for $795.00.

You could also buy parts kits and assemble one yourself for:

$80 - $225 for the Parts Kit
$149 - $375 for the Receiver
$60 - $150 for the US Parts to make it Legal
$15 - $50 for a US Muzzle Brake
-------------------------------
$304 - $800 for a Home Built FAL

Of course, the tools will add a little to the cost also. Since, unlike an AR-15 you must install the barrel on an FAL you will need headspace gauges (GO, NO GO), a clocking wheel, and a dremel (just in case).

Go with an L1A1 or a HK G3/91

let's not forget about the cetme. I prefer it to the g3 <i know damn near the same gun but it seems to have less recoil to me.> can be found for around 300-450.

Try a Cetme , its my main deer rifle just be a little picky when buying one . Some of them made by Century were pretty crappy and they also make a G3 clone now .

You might also check out a Norinco M1A, one of the best values in .308 rifles available.
