Unmarked DSA Type 1

This is the start to the sign-up list for the DSA Type 1's with the same manufacturer's markings as the Israeli receivers, but blank sides to add your own engravings. They will be "in the raw" so we can parkerize after engraving. We will need a minimum order of 50 to have these made, and I have reached out to DSA for both a cost per unit made to these specs and a time frame for production after payment. I will update this thread as I get the info, but I would expect the cost to be comparable to their current prices or slightly lower, since we aren't asking for anything crazy and are skipping a couple finishing steps.

Current MSRP on T1's are 384.95 while Izzy's are 414.95.

You will need to contact DSA customer support to setup payment and shipping info. This group buy will run for a total of 50 units, if there is crazy demand we can see about setting up multiple batches. Provided things go smoothly, I would like to see about Type 2's and Type 3's with the same treatment, maybe other types of receivers as well (Brit, Aussie, R1, etc).

This will be the thread for general discussion and also to sign up.

Here is everyone who has committed:

I would be in for two (2) unmarked DSA receivers.

Nice blank slate for any number of FAL projects.

Hey Garth,

What's the status of these? Do you have a price yet? I just bought a couple of their type 1s, but would love to have a blank one.

I highly suspect the timing is not right for DSA to offer a 'Group Buy' for any receivers, including an unmarked G1.

They are struggling with demand on the Izzy's and desperately need to get caught up.

When I ordered my Izzy 'Officer Grade' back in early April, they told me they had a backlog of 450.

The FAL is not a "platform".
It is a lady-lookin' foreign made collection of sexy Belgian curves that intimidates the shit out of today's Pajama-boy males.

It's not an Assault Rifle, it a Sport Utility Rifle

Nah. DSA and FALfiles has a long lasting contentious relationship, which DSA earned. DSA doesn't need to do a group buy with FALfiles members, especially when their receivers are selling faster than they can be produced.

Maybe selling out of receivers after just a few short hours, is an indication they are beyond their manufacturing capacity and not producing to meet demand ?
