I have to give a TON of credit To HUSS, he sourced 80% of the parts. The wood, handguards, buttplate, cleaning kit, sling, and a few other parts are real Dutch. The front sight im sure was custom made. All I did was source the remaining 20%, build it out on a DSA receiver, headspace, and then match the finish with a mix of GunKote paints. It shoots like you'd expect any FAL to, 100% function. As far as the front sights, the Dutch FAL has a few things that are ONLY found on their FALs. The Front sight, the buttplate, the flash hider, and a modification to the bolt, are all proprietary to the Dutch FAL.
