    ikor... sorry about the nasty welcome to Jhb. hope you weren't attacked for it.

    as for this part... "The FAL was built from a like new Imbel kit on a new Imbel 'gear logo' receiver by Arizona Response Systems...I had the peep drilled out (that steel is as hard as woodpecker lips!) so my old eyes could pick up the front sight and target better. It was a shooter for sure"... CAN ANYBODY TRANSLATE AMERICANESE?

    Only a few Belgian FALs made it into the US. About 1800 or so, if I recall. These were all auto sear cut rifles, although they were semi auto only. The ATF found out and banned further imports. The guns already in were given curio and relic status. These are commonly known as the "G series guns" Like mine hehe. They are worth quite a bit.

    A ton of parts kits made it in to the US, that is a complete gun, less the receiver or with flame cut receiver.

    Imbel, of Brazil still makes FALS. Tons of their receivers made it into the US are many of the better kit guns are assembled on them.

    Thats how I understand it.

    The standard sights on the FAL are tiny, and are intended for 300m target shooting. They will benefit from being drilled out to make sight aquisition easier. Like the LM series.

    Hah! No, the cam was stolen well over a year ago on a connecting flight from CT via SAA where my luggage had to catch up with me. I only realized it after I got back home. It taught me not to do what I knew was wrong anyhow...carry valuable small items in checked baggage.

    That means this was a 'kit' rifle. A great many FAL 'kits' were imported into the states (some like new) with everything intact except that the receivers (for the FAL the upper receiver) were torch cut thru and thru first. Imbel of Brazil builds a forged steel receiver pretty much the equal of anyone except for cosmetics (the Belgian and Austrian guns are much prettier) and quite a few made it into the country before their importation was stopped, so many 'new' FALs have been built by using the kit parts, an approved Imbel receiver and a few US made parts. Confusing, I know, but it is the law, and the law does not have to make sense! ;D

    Yup. They don't quite have the same value as they do over there though. They are cheaper! I paid the equivalent, at the time, of $1000.
