Default Every Forum must have gun-porn

While the Forum was down, I finally picked up my type I and type III FALs at Big Macs. Put stripper covers on, modified mag catches, put pistol grips back on, but haven't had a chance to shoot them yet because Laguna Seca is closed due to racing.

That is exactly what I was thinking! Of all the weekends they have to pick this one .
Yours looks pretty cherry; I could have sworn that I've seen that particular pic posted on FalFiles or AR15.com recently.

Can someone please post a close up picture of the top of the FAL receiver where the "dust cover" is?

Thanks. I had never seen a decent picture of it before so I was a little confused as to how it works. I've been considering building a FAL but I am unsure how much smithing has to be done (how much does it cost).

They are slightly darker grey. The flash made them a little lighter. Yours is nice as well; can't see the end of the barrel too well on the pic, is it naked?

One of mine will be up for sale probably within a month to make room for a Para-built FAL, so watch the Firearms For Sale. It almost doesn't pay to build anymore with the costs of receivers and kits way up, unless you want to build something special. But here is Rich at CGW http://www.cgwguns.com/ and his prices, highly recommended on this board, in fact built Technical Ted's FAL pictured in this thread and will be doing some work for me as well.

[quote=Technical Ted]It's got a DSA muzzle brake installed. For the life of me I can't recall if I had Rich permanently blind pin it in place. Since it is a fixed mag rifle and the Federal AWB has sunset, I could potentially replace the DSA brake with a flash suppressor like the ones offered by Smith Enterprises or Yankee Hill Machine.

Mine have the DSA muzzle brakes as well. I do have the original STG flash-hiders, but I don't like their looks; the Yankee Hill Machine ones look good; thanks for the link, Ted.

So far the only brake I had a problem with was on a .50 BMG, I was right next to it and I swear that everytime the guy fired there was a mini-tornado headed for me. What were they shooting .22s?

The only time it bothered me is when some guy next to me was firing what was probably a .338 Lapua. I think that stuff like that comes with the hobby, so I won't complain about muzzle blast unless it causes me injury. The guy even gave warnings before he fired. This was at Chabot, where the benches are close together. I just went to the Livermore range, and each station has walls on both sides, which completely eliminates the problem. I don't think they allow .50s at Livermore. It might blow the walls down.

Yeah, the guy with the .50 was really nice and I would have moved, if there was room elsewhere. There wasn't, I didn't complain either, like you said it comes with the territory, but my shooting really went to hell that day. It is like trying to shoot and someone behind you whacking you every now and then, and you never know when.

Naw, I might get hit with a ball or a club. I was thinking of taking up flying kites, the only problem is, there is a string attached.

As a gun and golf freak, I can say you are correct, but not if you're watching some of the long drivers on the PGA tour. Recently, I attended the World Golf Championship at Harding Park in San Francisco. It was amazing to watch how hard some of those guys (Tiger and John Daly in particular) would hit the ball. On one hole, I saw Tiger drive the ball over 350 yards!

Anyway, those are really nice FAL's you guys have. Looks like I'll now have to add one of those to my long list of future purchases.

It's an Entreprise Arms Zero Climb brake. Something the person next to me really appreciates. Yeah, there were some comments on the brake. There was also the time when I was hitting the guy three benches over with the brass from the FAL.

Since there seems to be a trend with the FAL pics here is my G1. It was a mismatched kit, I refinished the wood with tung oil, and the metal with Alumahyde II. US parts include H/T/S, piston, charging handle, and hand guards. I would like to replace with HGs with original metal ones and then add floorplate or follower.

Since we are doing ARs now:

Armalite 16" on a FAB-10 lower


16" .50 Beowulf on FAB-10 lower - a blast to shoot, literally


the 24" 6.5 Grendel on a Vulcan lower next to the Beowulf:

I didn't have it on that long before selling it. Had trouble shooting it with both eyes open, needed more practice with it. The dot wasn't as sharp as I expected, more like a blurred dash than a dot.

Yeah, you might want to get your eyes checked, as I've never had a problem with my EOTech; the red dot and circle around it is always sharp. I used to be near-sighted and had to wear contacts, which would sometimes mess with my head. Ever since I got LASIK three years ago, I've had 20/15 vision and couldn't be happier.

Funny you should mention that. There is a guy on arfcom that calls it the best $5,000 optic. I guess, he had myopia and other problems, as well. I may have to put down some money for that, my sight isn't getting any better.

I totally agree! If I still had vision problems, I would rather invest $3500 (what I paid) on LASIK than a Swarofski scope. If you live in the Bay Area, I would strongly suggest going to Dr. Furlong in Campbell, CA - he's the best!

I don't live in the Bay area, unfortunately. Did you have blurred vision or anything afterwards?

CG, nice AT-22, I was just wondering about its legality in PRK. Where did you get it? Does it come with 10rnd mag? How does it shoot? Is it fun and accurate?

Somebody call me? Oh, that was Charliegone.
Just for that I'll re-post my FALs, that are safe queens no more. They are almost as much fun to shoot as ARs.

Hehe CG, well I got it from featherUSA here is their website

http://www.featherusa.com/page2.html

The person who answers the phone Margaret is very helpful and courteous, she can help you out.

I haven't shot it yet. Hopefully this weekend I'll go down (or up) the range and take a couple shots. It comes with an 8rd mag. They do have 20 rds but those illegal here. I also noticed you can use the ar-7 mags in the at-22 (or rather rav-22) with a little modification. It is complete legal here in the PRK since rimfires are not regulated as assault weapons. The cool thing with this rifle is I can use a scope with the iron sights. Its very light too. The barrel is removal as well as the wire stock. I really don't like the wire stock too much, I was thinking of getting the ar type stock. You can call as well.
