Anyon eknow where I can buy a match bbl for my Belgium match grade 308.
Mine is about 30 years old and the 1" group has gotten much larger. I am looking for a great bbl maker that has a bbl that can shoot 1/2 minute groups if that is possible

You might check with Ed Vandenberg of Vandenburg Custom in Houston,TX.

He has been known to build an acurate FAL or 2.

You do realize that a new barrel may or may not retore you group size ??
1" groups are exceptional beyond the norm for a FAL. I can tell you that a "National Match" FAL is that in name only, they receive no particular accurizing or specialized prep. The design itself does not lend itself to moa or even 2 moa shooting.

Replacing the barrel will drive the value down on that pre-ban FN, if that is a concern to you.
