What do you guys think of this deal

My FFL showed me these the other day.

https://www.dsarms.com/p-17085-israe...condition.aspx

Seems like an ok deal to me but I am not FAL expert even tho I have a couple. How bad would it be to get the correct receiver? Which one?

And are barrels available?

Is the build about the same as an ordinary FAL?

I see they have an option listed for a barrel with gas block installed but it is OOS.


What say the collective?

If you don't get one or two or three you will regret it. They will be gone and then assholes like me will be selling them for $1100 in a few years.

It's about the only game left in town. Light barrel Izzy's are not common, so this is a good chance to get one if you like the looks of them.

DSA is producing barrels and will be getting Izzy marked receivers out sometime later, the quality of which is yet to be determined, keep your fingers crossed. If all goes well, it should be a great addition to the FAL family.

APEX is also selling these kits, but barrels, Gas Blocks, and Receivers will come from DSA.

It will end up costing around $1100 to $1200 for required parts, then the cost of building and finishing if you farm it out.
Other than some unique parts, building isn't any different than other FALs.

I'd probably go for one, but my Donkey is already overloaded and I'm trying to lighten the load.

I noticed this at the bottom of the ad:

Coming soon, upper receivers with Israeli star and markings.

I appreciate you mentioning that APEX Gun Parts has these Israeli LB FAL kits and magazines.
We expect to have the US made barrels available in a week or 2.
We are still handling the kits and getting them bagged up.
I did notice some have vertical frame lock levers and some are horizontal.
Lots of bolts and carriers with Belgian proofs.

Buyers in states with magazine restrictions can select "none" and buy just the kit.

I already have the Israeli heavy barrel rifle(PAC) on an Imbel gear logo receiver, would be kind of kewl to have the light barrel version but so many kits in my que and other wants. I also have a STG58, also PAC on a gear logo receiver, which fills my list in that regard.

The para is the one I would like to get but these are available and sounds like the barrels and receivers will be up soon. I did notice a Israeli thin barrel FAL on GB for just over 2K but no bids.

THX for the input folks.
