tell me about the FAL

i've been looking at the FAL online a bit lately, what little information that I can find on it, and price depending, i'd be interesting in getting one. But I was just wondering if anyone on here has any experience with them? or any advice on brands, and such. My brother said he saw one in Great Southern a week or so ago, so when i get home from Southern for the summer I might go have a look then.

i'm thinking the FAL because I've been wanting an "assault rifle"(sounds evil i know), but i'm not really sure the ARs or even the AKs are for me, I've always been one to want something a bit different than the norm, but I can't find out much about them. I'd most likely buy new, if at all possible. I've found DSarms, but i'm not familiar with them, and the price on all models is a bit steep, so if all FALs are that insanely priced then I can go ahead and answer my own question and say that this rifle isnt for me. I'm willing to spend the extra money for a quality rifle, but i'm not a MD either, so I can't pay ridiculous amounts of money for a gun.

read an artical years ago on a DSA fal, they had guys loading and shooting thousands of rounds threw it. got it red hot, through it in a mud hole, drug it around, slammed in a mag and continued firing. the bullets hitting the target sideways, but it never missed a beet. i think it was 10,000 rounds they shot through it. amazing rifle.
For accuracy and a superior trigger pull, I'll take my SA M1A every day of the week. If I had to pick a battle rifle to take to war and stake my life on it'd be my FAL.

Looks like there's a recent batch of FALs being released by Century Arms. The price seems OK, but CAI rifle builds can be a crap shoot.
My franken FAL had a Century receiver. They were using cast receivers at one time and DSA's are milled. Mine had to be replaced after a bought with Wolf ammo. In all fairness to Wolf they paid to have it replaced.
