It sure looks the part! :cool:

The single-shot conversion might make the recoil stiffer but also gives wider reloading options. You can load lighter without having to worry about cycling the action.

I'm also remembering what you told us in on skype about how the gun shop you wanted to use isn't much help. :roll:

This is so exciting! :bigsmile:

If you want real accuracy out of an FAL, the secret is to take off the dust cover then electrically weld the upper and lower together, this gets rid of any sloppiness, then spring the cover back into place.
We used to do this to our Armourer Sergeant's competition rifles.
It also helps if one can avoid inspections as he always could and if you have 100% spare parts supply. :!: :!:
