WTB: FAL Kit...

If you haven't already seen this thread, I'm going to be in the market for an FAL kit here in the next week or so...

Throw me anything metric, in just about any shape, so long as it isn't a broken, beaten, abused thoroughly piece of junk... Good working innards are important, whereas the finish isn't... I'll be having the finish redone. If it looks like a piece of junk and fires (fired) well with little to no complications, I'll take it.

Also, Para... If you have a Para kit/lower with a junker stock, I'll take that as well. I've been thinking about building a Para stock out of machined aluminum bits with thick-wall aluminum bars. That would give me a good project for the summer as well.

I'm also looking for a receiver, as most kits don't come with that. I'll need all the bits and pieces for the receiver as well...

Please, semi-auto only, as my local gunsmithy/sale shop only carries a lvl. 2 FFL (not sure what it's called, but they can't handle full-auto firearms)...

I want to also find a long flash hider (pre-ban) to give it the long-barrel look.

PM me, or post a reply here.


Thanks,
- CK

CEEKAY,

I have a spare Imbel kit. The barrel is nice, all parts except the receiver are with it. The stock was painted green over the black. I do not have a receiver for the kit. $180.00 plus shipping if you are interested.

Don't worry about it being semi only you can get a semi only selector switch from several vendors. only takes a second or two to remove old 3 position switch and put semi selector in. Or you can buy a pistol grip that stops the selector switch from going to happy time.

Scott V2 had some re-finished (ready to build) Imbel kits for sale a couple of weeks ago. Look deeper into the market place pages. He may still have a couple left. $265 shipped.

That's a bit out of my price league...

I need a cheap kit... It's my first FAL, after all. I don't want to start out with something I'll be scared to shoot/scratch/get dirty...

I think I'm going to invest a total of around $650-$700 into the kit with reciever, then use another $650-$700 for compliance parts, paying the gunsmith to do the "hard" work, and then finishing and ammunition...

(Plus a 30-rnd mag or two... )

your DSA/IMBEL receiver ($375)
7 US parts, high quality ($210)
already refinished parts kit ($450)
assembly only ($235)
refinish your recever with purchase of kit (n/c)

and you end up with this
