You would be better off buying an already assembled rifle. Don't 'built' one.

I agree, the falfiles.com is a great resource for the FAL.

As for good parts kits, they are getting hard to find with barrels included. Some vendors are selling them with US made barrels, but most (if not all) of those lack chrome lined bores. I like chrome in my battle rifle's bore.

Register on the falfiles and keep an eye on the market place. You'll find a nice original kit for a reasonable price if you take your time.

^^^ Boy you'd have to be a real meathead to get a FAL build wrong. My FAL build was easy as pie, and it functions flawlessly. Of course I rebuild engines for fun so maybe it's just me :)

Anyways, I don't think it's cost effective anymore to DIY. Kits are expensive and scarce. A good receiver is also expensive. You might as well buy one from a reputable manufacturer/gunsmith. Of course, if you want to DIY for the satisfaction aspect of things, go for it. It's fun.
