It's a MUTT! STG 58 parts, Imbel type 3 receiver, G1 flash hider, FN Belgian barrel.

Planning on turning it into a G1 clone. I would have preferred the Stg 58 style flash hider but this is the way it came. Easier to get the woodstock then to convert the barrel to accomodate the Stg FH.

Very, very good condition though. Put together by an older gent on the East Coast years ago, test fired and stored.

Thanks from wags2161

Here is mine.

An SA58 with Israeli furniture. I have the original furniture, but prefer the Izzy wood.

and my unique bayonet I invented by mating a standard FAL bayonet with a nice German Mauser blade.

Looks great. Nice wood. You build it yourself. I heard they are fun to put together but I just don't have the time and too afraid I'll screw it up.

Getting a "G1" bayo from one of the FAL board members... interesting to see how it fits since the G1s never were issued with one.

Talking Mine

Well I thought I had jumped in here a long time ago, but seems not so --
Here is mine. It is an original FN/FAL select fire rifle with an Isreali proof on the mag housing.
It is a dream to shoot on full auto! Totally controllable in 3 to 5 rd bursts.
Next to the FN/FAL the M14 - of which I have 2 - is a POS!!!

Sure, I built it all myself with ZERO help from anyone
(purple = sarcasm)

not exactly. It takes a special tool to remove the buttstock so I bought the tool but went to a really good gunsmith right here in town that showed me the right way to do it without getting hit by the spring. It is not really that hard or dangerous, though. Not like some might tell you.

There is a picture going around the internet of a guy with "springface" (getting hit in the face by an FAL buttstock spring) It looks ghastly but if you look closer, you will see the only damage to the guy's face was getting a little grease on it from the spring. I will see if I can find it for everyone.

It turns out right here in Jacksonville is an El Primo FAL gunsmith that specializes in them. What luck.

Sarge....shhhhhhh! Even though we both know it is true.

FAL for fighting
M14 for target shooting.

FNs

OK after looking at some GREAT Rifles I thought I would humbly offer a view of two of my FNs. The Para is a gift from my CO when I retired from SOCOM (it was a barreled Imbel receiver I had DSA assemble for me that I use often and shoots really well. The FN49 is a Belgian 30-06 that shot better than my Winchester M-1 Grand match rifle did so I got rid of it to keep the FN-49. Sorry I don't have a photo handy of the L1A1 I carried at work for 12 years that was full auto (had to turn it in when I retired). Everyone shot it way too much and it ran great.
