Firearms Technical Trivia, April 2001:

The FAL has a powerful hold on the imagination and the interest of the shooting community world wide.  In this month's Tech Trivia, CRUFFLER.COM explores and discusses the ins and outs of building your own FAL at home.  For convenience and ease of use we've broken the article up into eight parts, which are recommended, but not required, to be read in the order presented.  Additionally, this article recounts actions, observations and conclusions based on our experiences and is not meant to be a text book or instructional manual for the home gunsmith.  If you do undertake a FAL construction project, it is wise to have the fruit(s) of your labor checked over by a competent gunsmith before you take it out to the range.
