Hi word around Calif. is that the DOJ is putting a hold on all DSA Fals sold in this state ,people that bought them legally from Turners outdoorsman are not able to pick up their Fals. DOJ SAYS that the pinned mags are illegal any one hear any info on this? I just saw this info on the FAL FILES website.:mad:

If your aim is to own a FAL there is another route that most don't think of depending on how FN gung ho you are you may want to look into purchasing a REAL Honest to god FN 50.63 you can find them on Gunbroker and other online sites.

The only drawback is the 50.63 is a paratrooper as seen below and you would have to run with a fixed mag configuration and unless you did a temporary change to a full length standard stock you could not run detachable mags. The mag in pic is a 10/20.


Ive posted this on this board in the past but it was a easy copy and paste this bit has to do with the FN 50.63 rifle but the same thing applies with the HK 41, and the SIG 510-4 rifle's as they are not on the ROBERTI-ROOS ASSAULT WEAPONS list either. the FN 50.63 can be purchased in the area of 2500-3000 and the same with the HK-41, The HK-43 is also not on the list be as its a bit more rare it tends to being more of a premium in the 3500 area.

The list is below as well as the link to the DOJ website where it came from.

Here are the pics of the receiver of my FN 50.63 where it does not state

What it does state on this receiver is "Cal. 7.62 mm NATO (.308)" Since it does not have what is in line 7 below thus "(7) Fabrique Nationale FAL, LAR, FNC, 308 Match, and Sporter."

Its my contention that this FN 50.63 rifle is legal in California State.

Own both the M1A and a FAL sometimes it's hard to choose when going to the range. They both shoot great. The fal is easier to shoot from a bench though
