View Full Version : Can you tell what this FAL kit gun was built on?
I was wondering if you can tell what the origin of this rifle would be (Argentine, Belgian, Frankenstein etc.). It has holes in the front sight cover that I've never seen before. I don't know much about FAL's. Any help would be much appreciated.
What do you want pictures of and I'll supply them.

I'll take a stab at it.
Argentine Chrome Lined Barrel
Imbel Para Kit
FSE Fake Flash Hider
DSA Carry Handle

If you are looking to buy this rifle ask if you can shoot it first.I may be wrong but I believe that the barrel if it is an open ear Argentinian barrel the front sight is not the standard low profile metric height but considerably higher and requires a taller rear sight than is on this rifle.The rear sight pictured is the standard profile metric para rear sight and would be compatable to the low profile metric front sights on the closed ear metric gas blocks such as on the imbel,G1 and Stg58 kits.The two are not compatable in my experiance.Mills41

The carry handle is Argy. The barrel is almost certainly Argy.
There were Argy paras imported by Armscorp which had open ear front sights and flip para rears. This may not be one ( they were all type 3 receivers and lowers , and I think they were all short barrel 50.63s) but the sight combo will usually work with te possibility that some rifles may simply be a unique combination of tolerances that prevent it. The actual difference is only 3mm, so all things being equal, that can be compensated with the front post.
I'm betting it is a Frankenfal, but seems like a nice one. Take some pix of the receiver markings and we'll go from there !!

check out the combo device. look closely in both photos.
looks to me like its not timed correctly, the slots for the wrench are not vertical
