Long story short – I am impressed with this rifle. Now for the rest of the story.
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
Unlike the Remington model 750 that has a small box magazine, the DS Arms FAL has a 20 round magazine.
When my FAL arrived at the firearms dealer I made the purchase through, I just happened to be on a 3 day camping trip on the Angelina River.
