Well I went and bought the DSA Type I w/o carry handle cut. What does this mean exactly? Does this mean I cannot put a carry handle on it? Could someone post pics of fully assembled FALs with and w/o carry handles? If the carry handle is the thing that sticks on top of the rifle., I don't think I want it. I will buy GPG's kit, but it looks like his comes with a carry handle. Do I need to install it? Thanks

:rofl: Cornholio?, Welcome to the files!

You will not be able to put a carry handle on the rifle, no biggie though lots of guys do not like them and I really never use the carry handle. They just add a little bit of cool factor to the looks of a Fal.

Entreprise has pics of the non carryhandle types >> www.entreprise.com

I found a good avatar for ya. :biggrin:

Yeah, you just won't be able to install the carry handle on top. No big deal for most people. I have one with and one without. It is sometimes convenient to carry the rifle that way, but I don't really miss it when I pick up my FAL without the carry handle. YMMV.

The Reference and Data Section is not the correct forum for posting original questions.

This is a REFERENCE forum.

A reference forum is intended to be a repository where knowledgeable individuals post DATA about a topic of study.

Original newbie questions of this sort should be posted in the General Firearms Discussion forum, or the Gunsmithing Forum.

Very Nice. But True. And since this is where knowledgeable individuals post DATA about a topic of study...
The DSA website posts DSA Magazine Articles at
http://www.dsarms.com/magazine_articles.asp and at the bottom is the
"October 2000 issue of Soldier of Fortune" magazine that presents
"FAL In Itís Finest Form, DSAís SA58: The Greatest Battle Rifle?"
http://www.dsarms.com/pdf/FALFinestForm.pdf
with many other good references!

The "carry handle cut" is addressed in that review on page "45." The "carry handle cut" topic has been kicked around but I like this review best! Check it out for yourself. :smile:

I'm gonna call DSA tomorrow and try to get my order changed [no carry handle cut, no carry handle].

Sorry it took two years and my dumb luck for this post. Good luck:smile:

Does anybody else find it funny that the original post by "cornholio1" in 6/06 was answered by " GripItRight " in 6/08? Not that there's anything wrong with that.
