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.
I love that FN49

If it shot 308 that would be even better.

I have woodstocks coming in and ordered the tool. I will be sure to check the internets so I don't end up with "spring face". All fun and games till someone ooses an eye.... yeah woodstocks... 3 seperate deals...

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.

The HK Rear sight is interesting...

I am curious when you changed the Original FAL sight to that HK diopter sight did your point of aim point of impact/zero change at all? At say 100 yards?

Do you prefer the HK sight vs the FAL sight?
Myself I never learned how to shoot correctly with diopter sights.

Thanks from SteelGreyML

Ben, the very first semi auto military rifle that I bought was a Venezuelan SAFN in 7mm Mauser, I bought it in 1978. It was a very sweet shooter, love 7mm Mauser. I have also had an Egyptian FN49 in 8mm Mauser. The SAFN 49 is an incredibly well made rifle, very robust. Pick one up if you find one and you will not regret it. I do not have any now. I will say though that as far as post World War II semi auto battle rifles go the MAS 49/56 is the best, I did keep one of those. I wish that I still had that Venezuelan FN49 though.

My MAS 49/56 in 7.5mm French


Thanks from SteelGreyML and TheShooter

I am sure it has but haven't had a chance to shoot yet.

I have 3 HKs and so prefer the HK turret sights.

Super easy install. Take one of the windage screws out and gently tap out.

Does your bolt hold open have a pin sticking out towards the magwell ?Yes it does

So that's normal then, the SAR48 Does not hold open on the last shot?

I have one problem, My bipod mount is off center,

Where that clamp clips onto my barrel the previous owner must have put it on wrong. Because it sits off to the left when the bipod legs are down, How do I loosen that clamp and turn it so it sits center in the barrel and making the bipod legs level?

I see a clip on the bipod clamp it self that is locked in a detent. When I Lift up on that clip it comes out but it doesn't do anything to loosen the area where the bipod is mounted onto the barrel?

Ben,

The SAR 48 DOES hold open the bolt on the last shot.

Give me a call tomorrow.
Greg


Ben I was just looking at your auction and it looks like your bipod is a quick detach model(picture 14). It appears in the picture that it is on correctly.

Thanks from TheShooter

I called Greg on the problem with the bipod he walked me through step by step on how to fix it. Now it is on straight.

Big thanks to Greg for getting my SAR48 Straighten out!

The wood furniture on the STG is beautiful. I'm considering changing my polymer rear out for the same. Where did you find yours if you don't mind me asking?

The wood furniture came from BGS Kit. The BGS lower was recessed for a Type A stock, so I picked up a Blue Monster Type A stock and wood grip and made the swap. The BGS build is in the process. Here's the BGS with the BM stock and grip next a new Coonan receiver. I just love wood and steel.

Best place to get a Wood stock is the FAL Files market place. But you have to be a hawk on the hunt. Pickens are slim.
