Re: Jen, Will DABTL be unbanned when when the Files goes live again......

If Supreme Beef is banned on the AK Files for serial misbehavior where does that place DABTL? I do not dislike Bill as we have a couple of things in common, but a professional agitatior does get old when he trolls each new thread with irreverent political comments. That I believe is serial misbehav...

Re: Izzy kits 299.00 at PSA

No response ? The regular FALFiles board is back up and running again so it's not likely that there is anyone looking at this temporary board anymore. The barrel should work. You will need to replace the gasblock with the gasblock that is in the Isareli kit. A couple people have ended up with Israe...

Good on ya mate!!

Will the other Izzy gas parts work with the Belgian GB?

I had in my mind they would not, but my direct Izzy experience is about 1/2 notch above zero.
The Israeli gasblock uses the same components as the metric open ear gasblock.

Re: What's the going rate on RA marked Fal kits?

Hey everyone. I use to be on the old board, been gone for a while. I was cleaning out the garage today and found a few RA marked kits and was wondering what they're going for now? 2 of the kits are matching numbered on Barrel, Lower, Bolt and carrier? One has a wood buttstock and one has a plastic ...

Re: AK Prices

Russian sanctions have blown up prices on the old Saigas and VEPRs. Bulgarian 74 barrelless kits have hit the $800 mark due to zero commercial supply available. Then add on the general firearms panic/record sales over the last few months.

Re: SA58 barrels and Israeli kits

You would have to swap out the gas plug, front sight post and associated parts, gas regulator, gas piston and spring. Easier to swap gasblocks.

Re: New To FALs

Might want to press off your Israeli gasblock first and measure the inside diameter, it seems that several of these have been oversized which would complicate just using any random metric barrel.

Re: Type 2 on GB

Here's the deal. FN built commercial rifles for years that used the G prefix, just because it has a G serial number does it mean that it's a banned G series. Also, up until FALs were banned from import it wasn't uncommon for people that maybe served in the military to buy guns while stationed over s...

Re: Type 2 on GB

Yeah, the question is whether or not it’s sear cut. FN made rifles with the G serial number long after the US “G Series” imports so the G serial number doesn’t necessarily make it contraband.

Re: My first FAL how did I do ?

The British lower will not work with a para stock, you will need to change out the whole lower. You then need a para bolt carrier and top cover. Then once you get the metric lower that would work with the para stock you will need to either use the inch rear sight or change out the gas block to a met...

Coolness. What are you seeing on the receiver I'm missing to say it's Argy?

I'm not disputing you but I cannot see any detail on my laptop to say what it is?

Re: Gas block journal too small on new SA58 barrel

An SA58 barrel is not a heavy barrel. Correct, and their standard metric gas block fit firmly on their barrel when delivered. I’m guessing it’s tolerance stacking in a bad way. I feel like it’s a safer bet that the Israeli barrel was out of spec ever so slightly than a 21st century mass produced ba...
