Kalifornia FAL'rs: Which bullet button?

I know this will sicken 3/4's of the FAL'rs here (the question of bullet buttons) so my flame retardent suit is on

Anyways, Kalibanistan FAL owners, which bullet button do you use and why?

I can think of three...thedrickel's, jjperl's, and PRK Arms.

Advantages/Disadvantages of the three...any others making them?

I appreciate any help in this and thanks for your opinions.

I use mine, cause they're free for me

But I'm not really making them any more. I would go with the PRK one.

Thumbs up Fal Bullet Button

Go with a PRK One, they look good and fit nice. Not real boxey either.

I use the PRK ones because it allows me to break the open and pull out the bolt and carrier w/o taking the lower off.

Don't know which one is which, since my CA Mod is just a set screw in place of the mag catch spring, but I had one in recently that used a #5 screw to hold on an "L" bracket. It was simple and worked well enough. Only "improvement" I made to it was to machine a screw- slot the flush nut so it could be removed easier. If I were to make them from scratch, I'd make my ow screw so it wasn't threaded at the contact points for the BHO and mag catch.


I haven't gotten a PRK in yet, but it looks interesting.
