I almost didn't buy this. After all putting a FAL together is simple stuff? WRONG

This is the best video/ workbook on building I've ever seen.

I do hope that bum finger in the video is well healed by now.

LOL at "the finger"
Looks like he was trying to get a hook out of a snapping turtles mouth with it, whatever caused it, had to be painful

(laughs). The number of comments I've gotten on that over the years. It is METACOL III Satin Black paint. For whatever reason, it bonds to finger nails more aggressively than skin. And no, I'm don't have a Goth streak.

Hi Mark. I really enjoyed the AK guide. Going to pick this up and try a FAL build. I have a RPD on the back burner. You should do a guide for them (RPD) haha.

Gonna order it before the days up. Too damn lazy right now to get out of my warm bed. 15 degrees outside, and snow everywhere. Tutorial looks like the bee's knees.

Thanks for putting this up.

I've still got 4 kits, and three receivers(all pre $200 days). In the meantime, have bought 2 completed rifles to play with, and built 4 AKs without tutorials. I am one of the few the think AKs are simpler than the FAL to build. That or I was just lucky

This set was a crucial second step in my education about the FAL/L1A1 (First step was getting on board here!). This book and DVD set is WELL worth the money. Great info and reference material.

Anyone who remotely considers building a FAL, or needing help with disassembly/assembly should get this DVD set.
