Yeah, I anticipate the milspec trigger problem. Keep in mind that I am talking about with a scope though.
A scope won't make you more accurate it will however show you how far off you are.
A scope will allow me to see the target at 500 yards lol

Re: FAL max effective range

A tragic FAL confession is that 3moa is really hard to hold, even with a 2moa barrel. The trigger is not friendly enough to the shooter, so even if the shooter can hold moa with a 10/22 at 100yds in a wind, hitting 20" at 500 with FAL irons 50% is an accomplisment. Yeah, I anticipate the milspec tr...

The Fals Max effective range is the distance at which you can reliably hit something.
Right, so the key is identifying how far that distance is for a reasonably competent shooter.

OP, I have not looked at 30 rounders anytime recently to say a number, but Sarco is generally fairly market priced. You may wait for the real board to open and find a better deal from an individual.
Thanks! I wasn't planning to rush out and buy any yet, just looking for a baseline.

Re: FAL max effective range

But realistically, anything past 300 is going to fall heavy on the shooter. Even identifying a "real" target at 400 can be challenging. It's not like an enemy is going to be standing still with a white background to assist in aiming. Understood, I'm just trying to assess the mechanical limitations ...

Re: Does your workplace allow you to carry firearms?

I worked at a large defense contractor. They said a gun on their property was grounds for dismissal, even in your car. Then they said if you got caught smoking on their property you could get fired.

30 round metric mags. Good price?

Looking for a couple metric 30 rounders, I stumbled across them on Sarco for $65. Is this a fair price for *fair* condition mags? I'm essentially just looking for collectible purposes, but I'd want them to be functional as well.

FAL max effective range

Thinking about trying some mid to long range shooting with my Izzy when I get it built, assuming a decent build with no horrid problems affecting accuracy. In researching the FAL's effective range, I have seen some sources suggesting it's as low as 500 yards while others push that up to 800 for the ...

Re: Izzy kits 299.00 at PSA

I have no shortage of elbow grease :lol: What I'm worried about is damaging the wood with any of these methods. I'll probably try the oven route first. Should I put something under the pieces to catch the cosmo, or will it drip at that temperature? Take the wood off. Yes cosmolene can drip, put som...

Re: Are DSA barrels worth it?

The the best of my knowledge, all Steyr barrels are bi-pod cut which is incorrect for an Izzy, regardless of muzzle configuration. For pure shootability however, Steyr is generally thought to be one of the best and most accurate barrels. I didn't realize about the incorrect cut, thanks. I know Stey...

I'm considering getting a DSA 21" traditional profile barrel for my Izzy build, but I'm balking slightly at the price tag. They're gone now, but Apex had "good" condition Steyr barrels a few days ago for about half the price and I was wondering if I should look for something like that instead. My co...

I'm a lot more concerned about functionality than appearance with all this. I guess it might have to do with my AK background lol
