After gong to the range today, I want to build a 7.62 semi auto precision rifle. I see way too many AR10's, SR25's, M1A's on the range. Never been one to follow the crowd I want to use an FAL. Being fairly new to the STG I thought I'd ask if it is feasible or am I just spining my wheels.

I already have an "Austrian" DSA STG 58 that will routinely shoot 2 1/4" groups for the base of this project.


Off the top of my head this is what I'm thinking:

rebarrel, it will be a target crowned, stainless steel, medium heavy contour, fluted 20" - 22" (.989 diameter to fit under the DSA railed forend)

Clean up and lighten trigger to 2 3/4 - 3 lbs

Are there any other areas I need to consider? Gas system? The bolts looks like it would lock up as well as an AR or M1A.

I'm not expecting a 1/4 or 1/2 moa like the bolt guns. All I want is about a 1 moa rifle that will run with modified the AR's and M1A's.

Any recommendations or prior expierence would be appreciated.

I shoot 1" all day with my FALs.

Two of My FALs are hands down more accurate than any standard M1A.

DSA upper receivers with DSA medium contour barrels. Chromeoly, not chromelined.
Black Hills and Winchester ballistic silver tip.

It takes very little to make a FAL shoot 1" at 100
