Re: Steel case ammo

Your FAL is worth too much these days to attempt steel case ammo. I used a little through mine before I learned better. It's best to stick with brass case stuff. Sure it costs more but it's far less likely to irreparably damage your rifle.

Do these work in any metric rifle?
Quick follow up - all the mags I ordered lock up tightly in my CAI receivered IMBEL FAL and look basically new. An excellent value for what they are.

It is coincidental that the Feds pulling back happens the day after Barr testifies before Congress.

I'll take a look at the magazine tonight with the innards removed and see if squeezing it does anything or not. I've been running in too many directions to pull all that out this week.
