Do these work in any metric rifle?

Basically yes if it's a FAL or LAR AR10. Just note that metric FALs don't have a metric thread anywhere on the them. Metric ain't really metric.

I would hope so. Receivers are either inch or metric. I'm sure some would fit better than others.

Ahh,....true EXCEPT for the Izzy. Barrel thread is a metric and why Izzy barrels need to be chased for any commercial receiver. 25mm thread iirc.

Well I decided to take the plunge and got one, now to find a receiver (DSArms) and a barrel, and of course learn the gun. The idea of a 21" barrel annoys me

$299, must be the bottom of the barrel returns.. still worth it for the couple Israeli specific parts though.

Might want to wait until the FF opens back up, barrels and receivers show up in our market place there.

The FAL is a battle rifle, not a CQB rifle. The designers chose the 21 inch barrel based on what the rifle was inteded to be used for. If you want a CQB rifle a smaller caliber such as the 5.56 or Russian 5.45 paired with the standard 16 inch barrels for both of those rifles where you can make quick follow up shots would be a better choice.

I would like to do a Izzy clone on a Imbel kit gun but finding a complete light barrel furniture setup in excellent condition at a decent price... the mythical unicorn.

Im not apposed to a 21" barrel don't take it that I want a CQB .308 because that wasn't the point I was making. I'll grab the correct 21" barrel when I can find one. If I am getting this build I want it correct. Might spur me to get a 2nd FAL down the line

The truth and power of these words cannot be understated or underestimated... however, the '2nd FAL' you speak of will be but the tip of the iceberg... :twisted:

thanks, I ordered a couple as I wanted some other things from them.

I hate paying shipping and taxes. On a good note I did already get a shipping notice.

I bought an Izzy kit. Just couldn't resist. I was wondering if the magazines PSA is clearing out have Izzy markings?

Reading the reviews it sounds like a mixed bag. Others with real experience should chime in.

My kit should be here tomorrow, will post. I'm hoping for a type 1 lower this time, and if it's as nice or even close to the one I already have I'll be happy, the first kit I got looks new from arsenal rebuild. But ordered it when they first hit the market.

I grabbed one as well just because of the price. Will be here next week but I hear they range from very nice to having bent and unusable parts in them. I’m expecting on the lower side, like I’ve purchased the bottom of barrel, but hope I’m wrong.
