FAL goes to the range.
Took my Entreprise Arms IMBEL FAL (refurbished Chilean FAL with CA legal features, 10 round fixed magazine, and Entrerprise Arms CNC made receiver with plastic furniture) to the range last weekend. Our shooting range in the CA Sierras has metal targets from 100 yds to over 500yds. We never take paper target as there are perhaps 25 metal target to shoot at, varing in size from a truck brake drum to a full sized NRA silhouette ram, spread between all the ranges.
After a few sight adjustments in windage and adjustment of the gas control, I started shooting at the metal targets at various ranges. Before the session was over I was regualarly hitting the 500+ yd ram target with open sights that are less that precision. That is about the only thing I think I need to change....smaller rear peep sight hole.
The only "problems" with the FAL were the handguard screw loosened and fell off onto the bench which I easily found, and the gas adjuster detent spring is either installed upside down or needs some bending so that it provides real clicks to the gas adjuster ring.
I bought the AGI video on Assembly/Dis-assembly of the FAL and viewed it yesterday so I'm ready to clean the gun today.
Neat gun and worth every penny I paid for it! It looks good when laid next to my two Garands, my Hakim, my Swiss K-31, my CA legal AR-15, my Mauser K98, my Yugo SKS, and my Mosin Nagant sniper replica. I think I just about have my military gun collection complete.
