Anyone know where I can find a list of parts I will need to build a FAL and tools I will need? Also, if I order an upper receiver from DSA, does that come with all of the internals?
Never got one from DSA but I'g guess you'd need the mag release lever and bolt hold open lever/springs/screw.
A kit plus an upper receiver should provide you will all the parts (except the US made replacements).
Upper receiver from any manufacture will only be the receiver. The other parts will usually be in the kit, but some will have to be replaced with US made parts.
As far as tools go, you need a barrel vise, a receiver wrench, headspace gauge set (Forster or Clymer) a pin gauge set to set headspace, various hand tools & of course the "must have" buttstock tool & extractor tool.
Receiver wrenches go from around $40.00-$70.00, barrel vise from $75-$250.00 Headspace gauges "Go & No-Go" should run about $50.00 for the set (don't mix & match, get one manufacturer they are different) The other tools will run between $75-150.00
Parts to change to US made........... only need to change 7 parts from list........
Furniture, (forearm, pistol grip, buttstock)
Might be cheaper to just buy one after the investment in tools & US parts. Definitely cheaper if you get expensive exotic wood furniture.
