Re: What causes dings on a FAL recoil plate?

The PARA is an interesting subject for this discussion. The 50.63 and SAR 48 PARA I owned/own are new or lightly used, so there are no dings. Someone may have well used specimen, that would be revealing. Arby's photo shows a more thrashed inch lower than any of mine, and that's saying something. The...

Re: What causes dings on a FAL recoil plate?

This argument is easily settled by examining inch pattern lowers. Even my most well worn Aussie and Brit lowers have no dings in the recoil plate. All my metrics also now use inch captive hammer springs so they avoid dings and are easier to disassemble with no tools except a slave pin to maintain tr...

Re: Tight Mag

Re: FAL aluminum 20 rounder

I got mine at $5 ea. from, I think Sarco, in the early '90s. There are no ID markings except a couple with a white dots on the base plate. I've got some steel mags. with the same with the same white dot. The only steel in the hinduminium/aluminum mags. is the springs. Mine are well used (partially b...
