The FAL is not an assault rifle. It is a main battle rifle and it really shines out past 300 meters. The adjustable gas system allows you to tailor the rifle for almost any ammo. It is NOT a sub MOA rifle but it will get the job done. I have several, read more than I need, and it will be my goto weapon if the S ever hits the fan. It is gentle on brass, unlike HKs and has seen service on every continent. Alas, the days of 200.00 receivers and cheap good condition kits are long gone. Best bet is to get with Mr. Clean, DSA is OK but very slow. Wait times are sometimes in excess of a year. Stay away from anything with a Hesse receiver and in my opinion Entreprise receivers are marginal. Coonan, DSA, and Imbel receivers are the way to go.
