View Full Version : Gas setting question

March 24, 2002, 17:04
I took my new FAL (Imbel receiver and kit) out for its first run today and found that it would function fine at gas setting 7. Out of 300 rounds I only had one or two short recoils and that was within the first 50 rounds.

Seems to me that I should have more latitude in gas settings. Could the gas port in the barrel be too large? Other problems? Seems odd for me to be asking about a problem given that it functioned perfectly and was shooting 2" groups at 100 yards :D

Oh, what luck thou has.

If it was only working on one I would question.

Have fun!
