    I have had mine for several years now. The original owner had only shot a few rounds thru it. It still had cosmo on the bipod. It has given me no trouble at all. The trigger is pretty bad but I still shoot pretty well with it. I have the DSA heavy scope mount, an IOR Valada scope, and a bipod. I like that set up a lot.

    I keep planning on getting a better trigger kit for it, but have failed to do so yet. I can't remember it ever failing to feed or eject. It can be a pain in the butt to clean because of that scope mount, but that is not DSA's fault, that's just the way the scope mount has to be. Mine has an Imbel receiver on it, I don't know if that makes it better or not. All I know is that for the 700 bucks I paid for it, it was worth every penny and I would not hesitate to buy another one if I wanted one and the price was right.

    Not a review, but the FN reps here on the board recommend DSA as the best FAL we can buy new today...


    That said, my Century (all metric STG kit) is good, just a little tight on inserting mags (compared to a buddys DCI based G1 setup). And it cost about half a DSA when I got it 2 years ago.

    I have a DSA SA58 Tactical Para Carbine
    16" fluted barrel
    Short Gas System
    Hampton Lower (M16A2 rear sight turret)

    THIS IS MY BEST RIFLE! (and I have a bunch).






    It is 100% reliable sub 1.5MOA accurate (which is very good for the FAL design) and a joy to shoot, (if you bought your ammo several years ago).
    DSA is an excellent company customer service is excellent and prices are good.

    I would strongly recommend a DSA FAL.

    Cool TA. Aside from the thing on the grip and the muzzle device we have identical FALs. I like everything but the eye relief on that optic! 0 inches!

    Depends on the DSA. If it is a chromed line STG barrel or a Badger Chrome Moly barrel.... they will last longer than your can afford to keep feeding them...

    sounds good, so around 20,000 or less?
