I wanna build a Para FAL to go with my Imbel fullsize, but I can't decide between an surplus Imbel front end with a 17.2" barrel for $300, or a brand new DSA with a 16" barrel for $495. What do?

It's a Para; go for the shortie.

I mean, yeah the 16" barrel is cooler, but is it $200 cooler?
>> No. 105902 ID: df12a0
"Check out my FAL Para, with not-Para barrel/handguard!" is decidedly not cool. $200 or no.
>> No. 105906 ID: 1519ac
The 17" is a factory Para takeoff. After doing some reading on FALFiles I think I'm going with 17".

Remember, for a more authentic Paratrooper FAL, you should have a folding charging handle, no carry handle and no bolt stop device, like the FAL 50.63 (although there are a few different Paratrooper FAL models).
FAL 50.63: Folding-stock, shorter 436 mm (17.16 inch) barrel, paratrooper version, folding charging handle. This shorter version was requested by Belgian paratroopers. The upper receiver was not cut for a carry handle, the bolt stop device were absent which allowed the folded-stock rifle to fit through the doorway of their C-119 Flying Boxcar when worn horizontally across the chest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_FAL

Ordered the 17.2 barrel assembly and a DSA para lower kit. Unfortunately, DSA won't ship receivers to NY, and I have heard mixed reviews about Coonans, although my fullsize has a Coonan reveiver and I've had no problems. I will be looking for a DSA or Imbel receiver on gunbroker. Pics to come when stuff arrives.

Any one NewYorkaStananian to another, go the 80% route unless you actually want to make it legal for some reason.
>> No. 106328 ID: 1519ac
Does anyone actually make a 80% FAL? Anyway, I'll be making this legal through the non detachable magazine route. It's a PITA but it's not worth the potential loss of firearm rights to me to have this be a practical gun. I have other more sensible guns if I ever need them.
