DSA Hebrew Hammer Review

TFB did a review of the DSA Israeli FAL. He even shouts out the FAL files towards the end. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nMk9XS...e_continue=699

I turn it off as soon as he said, and I quote, "Well, 1911's are outdated pieces of S***." Right then and there I know he didn't know anything.

FAL is a platform. AR is a platform. Geez. What is it with you folks? The cool thing about American English is we can put old words together in new ways for new context. Send a text message. Send a text (noun). Text me (verb). Americans turn nouns into verbs all the time because it makes sense. Our language evolves.

The receiver - AR, AK FAL, whatever. Is a base structure on which multiple variants can be built. A platform is a base structure on which multiple variants can be built.

Like a auto maker putting 6 different varieties on the same frame.

But I understand that those who can't escape the 1950s also don't believe the 1911 to be obsolete (grin).

I know, right?! I mean, like, I should say it because, like, everyone else is, right? I mean shit, we should all use like and shit because, like, it's cool, right?

Fcuk. That. My gun ain't no friggin platform and I'm not tacticool enough to use it. Call me old, a dick, or retarded. Don't GAF.

But yes, the 1911 is obsolete. Just like the FAL. And me.

If you've seen any of James Reeve's stuff before, he loves 1911s and FALs.

Great review. He didn’t mention the aluma-bomb receiver though, newbie. About every semi auto pistol is a derivative of the 1911.

WTF are you talking about? The receiver is cast so what.

On a side note the 1911 was obsolete the day the Browning HP came out.

Eeeeyeah, hi...Bill Lumbergh here. I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree on that one. The Israeli LB with the short combo device is by far the UGLIEST Fal ever made

All I said was it was an amusing video....nothing more.

Personally, I agree the standard FAL design is far nicer.

How true, the POS was only adopted by 50 countries. LOL Just the most widely adopted military pistol in History!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Browning_Hi-Power

The FAl and the HP pistol go together like bread and butter.

Sorry I was never a fan of the 1911. It was a good weapon in it's day but that day was over after the 2nd World War.
Should have been replaced in U.S armed forces then.

There is nothing wrong with a well tuned 1911. In fact that is part of the mystique, learning how to tune it.

A high power is also a great pistol, why would you think it wouldnt shoot hot hollow points?

Oh don't get me wrong I also like the higher power , that being said I don't think it's better than the 1911... if you're asking me ,I didn't say it wouldn't shoot hollow points but it's well known that anything over standard pressure loads like the NATO 9 mm and plus p defensive ammo causes battering or peening of the Locking lugs in short order. As I said I like the high-power, Nothing fits the hand big or small like a Browning hi-power but in my honest opinion the only thing that has over a 1911 is that holds more rounds

And no link to break, a better extractor, inherently more accurate out of the box, simpler barrel to slide fitment with no extra bushing.

But then that damn mag disconnect safety is a minus.

There is nothing "safe" about it.

I think the link is a better design
Extractor, meh, I've had to replace both, no faverate
Accuracy , any good quality 1911 is at least as accurate as hi power
Bbl to slide fitment, again like the link the bushing its a better design, better to fit a barrel bushing when worn out than to get a new slide ( most average Joe's dont have the ability to replace a hp bbl "bushing" )

Again, I am a hi-power fan, I just don't think it's better than 1911 IMHO, if the higher power is your favorite that's cool, my original comment I was just having fun gun guy to gun guy, just busting chops, no need to raise the troops

If you build a 1911 as John Browning designed it you would not need to "tune"it.

My first step in improving a 1911 trigger is removing the thing. Instant improvement.

And there's a good and sound reason the some of the best target/race guns dont use a barrel bushing. For the record I've never worn out a slide or bushing nor have I ever heard of one being worn out among the hi volume shooters I've known. Fitting a 1911 bushing properly isn't a job for joe blow either. Not if it's done properly with good longevity.
