Dont want to hijack your thread but are 223 bolts available for the FAL? I think the 223 Fal would be a fun project but the bolt mods. are an obstacle for me.

meeper easily modifies a .308 FAL bolt to .223 specs.

Does he do the same for the 45 acp bolts? Or, does he just make a whole new one? Thanks for all the great info guys! With Meeper's help. The FAL gets better and, better!!

The one I had was a Zytel-type magwell insert that was retained in place, IIRC, by the mag release on the 7.62 receiver. Then, there was a separate mag release button for the AR mag. Not as quick & functional as a purpose-built 5.56 FAL but certainly functional.

Hope this helps.

.308 and 45 acp have same base you can cut down .308 and make .45 acp brass.Originally posted by JP223

OK Gary, I'm gonna be watching for a write-up on this delivery. What's in d' box? Switch barrel thingie or sumpin?

I had Vern build me up a couple of .223's many years ago. First ones on the Board as far as I know. I've been holding on to a registered FAL receiver for years now just waiting to send it to him for a switch barrel job. .223, 7.62x39, .45ACP, 9mm. Who knows what else? Could end up a killer package. Just haven't seen enough write-up on the switchies since Mark passed away. :(

Thanks for all the help! Does the 223 mag well go in the 308 mag well, like a mag? Is it held in by the mag release?
