It's FALARAK!
(Actually it's an M10X.)



frankly it just looks line an AK with a FAL gas system.

      I've seen it.  Looks interesting......but not for the price.  Just my tight-ass opinion.    Big thing, I want to see how it lasts.  if it gets a lot of models out there I be more interested, or is it going to be another Robinson Arms type gun.

    I like it!

    But out of 5.56, .308, and 7.62x39; didn't they pick the crappiest cartridge to chamber it in out of the bunch?

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Uh, yeah...  It looks like a dressed up AK, with a left-side charging handle, lots of potential rail space, and an adjustable gas system.

    It is still just an AK with Magpul furniture.  None for me thanks.

    I might not buy that classy AK, but I've always had a proclivity for souped up AK's. I think they're the bees knees  :cool.

    One of these days when I'm out of the poor house, I'm going to have some fancy AK rifle projects in the works, probably.

    It's my favorite.   Perfectly adequate out to 300 yards.

    Honestly I'm sorta intrigued because I wouldn't mind having a scaled down FAL in 7.62X39 as well.

    I kinda want a FAL in .260.
    maybe 5.56 like the FN-CAL

    300 yards you say?  :hmm

    Maybe I should just put a scope on my SGL-21 for Texas hogs? But which scope would be good for such an application?

    I might have to make a new thread on this later.

      In my opinion,  if price is "doable" I'd go with the RS-regulate AKOG mount and Primary Arms 3X mated to the 7.62X39 round.     Matches up perfectly on the 4X version.  I wish I had the 3X version but I bought the 4X a month before the 3X came out.

      As light, low and compact a scope as you can get on an AK.

       As unlikely as it is, I'd love to see FNC's imported again someday, fi the ATF whitepaper actually turns out.

    Thanks Grant! That is a very reasonably priced scope.

    As y'all know, I shoot pistols mainly, so rifles and optics (basically anything to do with distance) is not my forte. I was asking the internet what was a "good" scope and the prices I was seeing were like $1500. I can do $300, but $1500 is just too much at this point in my life.

    if you're going out to a thousand yards I can see spending $1500.

    For 500 or less?  you can get a LOT of scope for $500 anymore.

    Just going to point out, if MTK20 plans to use this scope for hunting, and if Grant has a x4, and wishes he had a x3...  I would take the higher magnification scope for hunting use.  Properly dialed in, it would allow for a more precise takedown shot.

    I've seen a handful of M10X's at gunshows. IMO, they looked kind of cheap and somewhat fragile. IIRC, AK Operators Union did a review on an earlier iteration of this rifle (I think the only difference was it had a different handguard and an M4 buffer tube and stock), and it did not perform very well.

    Honestly, if I wanted an AK with a left-side charging handle, folding & adjustable stock, and full-length optics rail, I'd save up and buy a Galil ACE.

    I really wanted to fall in love with it... But I'm not for some reason.  I don't see the real advantage over a side folding AK, other than the left side charger.
