You will need more than a para stock if you want to make that rifle a para fal. Congrats on your score. Look to see if DCI or DC Industries is stamped on that receiver.

well i just got back from the range and except for the us made handguards coming loose it functioned flawlessly! i was very happy with the rifle it is a ton of fun to shoot. with the 16 1/2inch barrel it is even louder than my m4gery! i sold my savage 10 tactical to buy this gun and it's fantastic. we fired over 240 rounds through it and it was easier to clean than my akm or the ar.
i was looking for a m1a or garand when i found this deal and except for a realy filed down front sight
its like new.
