    DSA FAL

    Anyone heard of these guys (DSA, not Aim Surplus)? I've been dying for a FAL since the day I first laid eyes on one, and I can finally afford one now.
    DSA is awesome. I've seen nothing bad said against them and the quality of the stuff I've seen in person is pretty impressive. Can't go wrong with them.

    They have a factory down here in IL actually.

    They used to be Belgium licensed and operated up until the late 80s, but they're still making semi-automatic Falafels.

    I've heard they are kinda dicks about service and repair. But I'd still love to have a FAL.

    Ah. I've seen a few Imbel FALs around but I've passed on them every time. Most of the time they have OD furniture (which is fine, but I don't care for it on a FAL) and they just seem shoddy to me. Add to that, reviews don't paint them too favorably either.

    Do you have a link to the aimpoint and the rail? I can't seem to find either.
    I found the rail mount! :D

    They're quite crappy, I remember they had the penetrative power of sponge.

    Uhh, well considering they have a lighter powder load than your average .22, and they have the penetration power of a toothpick, that would probably be the stupidest thing anyone could do. When I was a kid I pretty much only used them to cut down weeds and stuff. They're nothing more than fun plinking rounds, or something to kill rats with indoors without worrying about ricochet or over-penetration.

    .22 is fine for self defense too, there's higher powered rounds sold that have more muzzle velocity than .25 ACP. I still wouldn't carry one, but people make it out to be much worse than it really is.

    I just learned that my uncle has a WW2-era M1 carbine that he uses for home defense.

    As well as three 1911s - one made in WW1, an officer issue that saw service in Vietnam, and a more recent knockoff edition. Ton of revolvers and shotguns too.

    Hit someone at close range with an M1 Carbine and it's lights out, like getting hit with a buff Colt Python.

    So my store got in a Baikal side-by-side 12GA Coachgun, and the best part is IT HAS FUCKING HAMMERS THAT WORK! Also, it has 2 triggers and you can shoot both barrels at roughly the same time. The only problem is it's $600...

    But they seem to need some sort of machining to fit properly. As far as I can tell. Especially since it's an officers model.

    99.99% of the time they will drop right in. Officer's model isn't anything special. As long as your gun is mil spec, you can get one online for cheap.

    This might seem like a silly question, but they're cheap enough so I may as well ask: How hard do you guys think it would be to modify a Nagant revolver to have a flipping cylinder?

    Edited:

    I'm thinking very because of the seal.

    I don't doubt one could make a new Nagant revolver with a sealing cylinder, but modifying an existing Nagant to make it work, you mind as well build a whole new gun.
    A better design if you ask me is a break open action like a Schofield (<-Mmm) or a Webley.

    Wish there was a gas sealing black powder percussion revolver though because god damn. My Navy leaks BP fouling everywhere when I fire it and it builds up on the front of the cylinder and makes it difficult to draw the hammer so I have to wipe it off with a damp cloth each time I reload, and this is with 15 grains of powder, the gun can easily handle 25 grains.

    Would be nice if I could get some smoother percussion caps too, the CCI caps I have don't pop, they EXPLODE and it's fucking annoying because the bits of copper fly into the frame and jam the cylinder between shots more often than not.
    They should just bulge out and fall off when the hammer was drawn, also serving to block the gas, not be packed full of dynamite and explode.

    How much do you guys know about converting an SKS to detachable magazines? Is it just a few parts to swap out, or is it rather complicated?

    Fired a Desert Eagle .44 for the first time today. I am not impressed. The thing has way too much recoil and takes me a couple of seconds to resettle it back on target. I don't see it being practical in combat. Maybe for target practice or hunting.

    My teenage dreams are crushed.

    My teenage dreams are crushed.

    My teacher claims that the .357 Mag version for sports shooting is "decent" That's due the recoil being less in .357 and it has 9 round magazines, while the class you can it is mostly for revolvers, so you'll have more shots

    But there's a drawback if you are a reloader, he said it threw casings up 40 meters away.
    Whereas with a revolver, it's much easier to keep track of your casings.

    The bullet ricocheted off her skull and she discovered to be bulletproof, and now she fights crime?

    She was the Chosen One and her death allowed the demon lord Zel'Nharg-lar to possess her corpse to come into our realm, and now the planet is fucked?
