So, As many of you know I'm now the Owner of a PARA FAL 50.63. I received the rifle this Friday and managed to get some range time Saturday.
the receiver is an american made billet manufactured by Ohio Rapid Fire (Defunct. also: avoid. my receiver is good, but some are not.) Imbel Lower, Imbel bolt, DSA lower guts, DSA barrel, gas piston, ect.
she shoots around 2-3 MOA, standard for a FAL. and aside from an issue with a soft commercial round being ripped apart during extraction pretty dang reliable. I've got it set on gas setting 3.5, works great.
still absolutely mangles brass, but hey, what FAL doesn't?
I've decided to forgo the custom machining of a break for now as it was going to be more expensive then originally quoted due to factors (My smith would need to machine a dummy barrel, ream out a hardened break and then single point tap it. so $25 became $70 real quick. I'll wait for the 5/8th-24 version and get an adapter or the barrel retapped when the time comes.
all in all it's a fine rifle. the LOP is a little short feeling to me. but I have massive monkey arms.
Oh- and the receiver is metric cut only. not hybrid. as far as I can tell it's a full metric gun. I had issues seating two of the mags (Israeli markings) at first. but once I scraped the paint off the contact areas they functioned fine.
inch left. metric right.
my mag well:
