Is this how you got it? Don't shoot the gun without a locking shoulder installed. The bolt group will slam back. The result will be catastrophic.

My LS is the same slightly recessed with a hole in it.
Its handled hundreds of rounds just fine.

Great-looking, quality, rifle! I prefer the 21" barrel for shooting, even with PARA , but with a factory built FAL rifle, in this day and age, you take what can get, and you have done well!

Congratulations!

It shoots well, although the trigger is evidently only supposed to be pulled when someone is shooting at you. HEAVY!

Get yourself a Falcon FAL spring kit. Makes a big difference in trigger pull and is easy to install.

Swap out the HTS. Oddly the "Century Austrian" ones are among the best. Mine runs 2 3/4 Lb first pull 5 Lb second & only stacks when the sear flips from front to back as its tensioned in the oval cut.

It's something like Wolff spring kit for the 1911 pistols. I don't believe Falcon is still in the spring making business. It's better shoot the gun first and find out if there is a problem and the problem is really spring related.

Gotcha !!!! I just wasn‘t familiar with that name, I have not had the time to shoot my FAL yet however dry fire drills feel like 6-9 lbs. close to my Garland/carbine/enfields. Now my bone stock AR does suck ass in that area.

I just ordered almost the same thing back in February. I got the one with the bipod, carry handle, and Type II receiver. Let us know how it shoots.
