After ordering some Magpul parts for my Bushmaster, I decided to wanted to go with as many Magpul parts as I could.
There has been a recent trend towards flat dark earth, but I want my parts to be OD green.
Post your comments below, or in this forum thread – What do you think about this AR build?
Back on October 21 I started a thread in the forum asking what was the best 308 semi-auto for the money. There were lots of suggestions thrown around; like the PTR-91, CETME, Springfield M1A, FAL,,,,,. In the end I decided to spend the money for a quality product, and purchased a DS Arms SA58 FAL.
Factory, right of the box – I would compare the recoil to a 30-30. But this is a full sized 308 Winchester.
Is like having the best of 2 worlds:
1 – full powered rifle cartridge.
2 – light recoil
