My SAR48 didn't hold up on the last shot.
Which means I probably didn't have the gas up enough right?

As long as everyone remembers it is a BATTLE RIFLE meant to fight and win, the FAL is the "go to" rifle of choice.

It's advantage over most other weapons is...

a) Your body is just a bit lower down when firing this one. An advantage the good ole Browning Machine gun had too.

b) You CAN adjust the gas system to battlefield salvaged ammo left behind by the enemy or captured by you.

c) The sights are rugged and once set to your BZO are hard to knock around & elevation ( range to the enemy) is easily adjusted in 100 meter increments.

d) In H2H it is devastating held normally, but downright brutal when held upside down and backwards. Buttstock forward & held by the pistol grip by your left and held just behind the front sight with your right (not by the barrel).Take it out of the safe & try holding it that way. You will see what I mean.

Just my 2 cents.

Does your bolt hold open have a pin sticking out towards the magwell ? If you do not then the bho will not contact the magazine follower to lift it in to retention position. There is a slot on the back of the magazine on the left side that the pin fits into. Here is a pick of a bho with pin.

I have one just like it! Mine started like new too ... and is not so new now. I got all the brass marks from a working rifle. It's a fighting rifle for sure, and I love it. Congrats on the new blaster! Hopefully you live in a free state where you can get magazines for it. I'm in CO, and hosed. :(

Way back in the day when you could buy the SAR 48's new, what attracted me to them was the fact that they were the same as military issue FAL's except that they were semi auto. They were made on the same assembly line as rifles for military sales, like the HK91 and Polytech AK's from China. At the time, 1988 or so, I gave up on the M1A's as they were parts guns with pure civilian receivers made mostly for the target shooters and to be safe queens. Now just about any semi auto military style rifle we have available to us is a parts gun, except Colt and FN semi auto M4 style rifles, and the SCAR's and some other fringe weapons. I am not counting the new production SAI M1A's in this as now they are purely civilian. Now I just like shooting and am back into M14 clone's because one of the things that they do best is shoot. Because I like to shoot different weapons, I have my AR's, AK's, HK clones and I think that I will be on the look out for another SAR 48, kinda of sorry that I sold the last one but that is the way life works out sometimes.

Really enjoy my FN pattern rifles. Unfortunately still tethered to post op bed rest orders so will have to pull what photos can find that have been posted elsewhere.

16 inch barrel short gas system FN FAL with all the 922r compliance parts required. Keep a box with the correct original parts if ever comes a time where 922r is not an issue or stop caring. While not generally an optics guy when it comes to battle rifles, added a Burris red dot sight due to the post 50 year need of bifocals beginning to show itself down range.



Numbers matching preban L1a1 with all its original accessories including front sight cover. If I were the type guy to name my rifles it would have to be called something like Sweetness as its nothing but sweet to shoot or just pull from the vault and look at. While it does get shot, trying to keep overall round count low. Original owner said only had 20 rounds through it when it left his home for mine. Still under 100 total rounds but some day will most likely wring it out. The two trips it's made to the range used the easy remove blue painters tape to mask around ejection port to keep the typical FAL/L1a1 brass kisses from dining the finish.



Lurking about are a couple of SAR 48's in 5.56, SAR 4800 in 5.56, two SAR 48's in 7.62x51, a trusty G1, along with all the parts on bench to assemble another L1a1, G1 and FN FAL. For treat like a stray dog with rabies rifle, hard to beat the FN pattern rifles. Need to finish the three kits so can go back to shooting up all my milsurp 7.62 ammo without adding wear on my nicer rifles.

Oh, and a 5.56 SAR 4800 before fully changed over to SAR 48 configuration. Ugly muzzle device had been swapped for a flash hider but stock and pistol grip had not arrived when this picture taken. Rather than shoot the two preban 5.56 48's ragged purchased this, swapped over to 922r compliant pistol grip and use it for my range rifle that doesn't matter if gets all beat up.


Thanks from TheShooter

Wow beautiful condition. I wouldn't touch that with out the white gloves on.

Looks like you have all of the original SAR48 parts on that 4800.

I hate those post ban politically correct parts they used... They're just flat out Ugly.


Next year when I get more money I am going to purchase another FAL.
