I have been looking at purchasing a FAL. I am a bit confused on the difference between the CETME and a FAL. Also is this a good price on a CETME? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

IMHO I'd stick with a FAL Imbel or a DSA

M444 goes for about $675 from Dan's right now.

I have not heard much good about CETME's.

go to the FAL board and read up.

If I could only buy one, it would be a FAL. I have both FAL and CETME. Have to remember the CETME's on the market right now are built by the fine craftsman at Century Arms. A pre-ban CETME will set you back more than a weeks pay, if you can find one.

a CETME it the prototype for the H&K G3 et al
(H&K91 etc.) developed by a Spainish engineering group of expatriot German engineers after WWII.
It utilizes a unique delayed roller lock mechanism to operate the action. No gas is involved.

the FAL was developed by F.N. Herstel & utilizes a gas operated pistoon to work the action. May clones of this rifle where alos made. The British L1A1 & the Austrian STG58

check out www.dsarms.com too for current U.S. manufacture FAL's type rifles

www.falfiles.com is a good site

Ok, FAL is the way to go. Where can I get one?
BTW, the fnfalfiles.com site did not work...

Here's another opinion.... I baught a CETME built up on a SW cast receiver. Has been nearly 100% reliable, accurate as all hell (1 3/4" at 100yds). I'm happy as can be. It's a bit bulky though....dirty shooting too.
