Looking into joining the FAL group, and getting more and more interested. What really got me interested is the DS Arms OSW...unfortunately, I'm living poor right now (BUT I NEEEED MORE FIREARMS). Will the accessories such as the para stock, and others fit on most any FAL, or do I need to start out with any particular base? Please somebody out there educate me. I would greatly appreciate it.

Consider the JLD PTR91 also.

I don't care much for para stocks but do get an FAL.

Para builds are based off the same upper receiver, but the lower, bolt, bolt carrier, and I think several other parts are all unique to the Para. So, if your question is: Can I buy a standard FAL and then later drop in a Para stock? The answer is NO. Can you get a correct Para lower and then attach that to the upper reciever without too much difficulty? YES you can.
The FAL Files will be a great resource for these questions. The guys over there are great, and full of information. Good luck.

Get one, they rock.


Oh, and I got rid of the POS ATN scope that is in this pic. ATN stuff is garbage, I've seen mudpuddles clearer than their glass.

I didn't like the FAL, but now I have one (StG58) and I think it's one of the best 308 rifle....really simple and well made. get one if you can

My favorite blaster is a DSA STG58C carbine.

Easy to maintain, $5 mags, cheap parts, utterly reliable with decent ammo. Recoil is very manageable and it is surprisingly accurate.

I think of it as an AK in 308! Absolute winner and the best $800-something I ever spent on a firearm.

FALs are great rifles. Ive got an older all Belgian one (Im old enough that you would probably castrate yourself with a Swiss Army Knife if I told you what I paid for it) and it never skips a beat...It sits pretty comfortably next to my FN FNC and Browning HiPowers.

the only problem i have with FALs is that they tend to be a bit pricey for a nice one, so they are harder to stockpile then AK's or even AR's...

seriously though. i got a good deal on a SG58C and i LOVE it.

:) oh get one..you know you want to...
