DSArms Israeli FAL Parts Kit

DSArms has announced the availability of a new FAL parts kit based on surplused Israeli Defence Force FALs. The kits include a magazine and everything but the rifle’s upper receiver and barrel.

Luckily, DSArms will also be offering correctly marked new receivers soon to create the most authentic Israeli FAL build. These are not yet available for pre-order but are said to be coming soon. Then all you will need is a barrel.

Here’s DSArms’ full statement on the new kits:

Now you can own a real piece of Israeli history, The Israeli FAL rifle parts set. These are the very rare standard or light barreled version. Only extremely low quantities of complete rifles in semi auto were ever imported to the US. These are much rarer than the heavy barrel models occasionally seen on the market bringing premiums. These are in all original condition. The Israeli produced FALs had unique features. Such as wood handguards on metal liners, which were very effective to reduce the felt heat transfer. Also wooden buttstock, polymer grip, unique components not the same as a Belgian model are the gas block, lower trigger frame, selector switch, magazine release, charging handle, joint pin, front sight and tall rear. Most of these rifles had a plain muzzle with bayonet lug on the bottom, which also accommodated a trident flashider bayonet and quick release grenade launcher. FN Herstal first made the rifles for Israel until they tooled to make their own with these special features.

The surplus market has been drying up all over the world, which is increasing the value of collectibles like these in private hands. Surplus firearms, their parts and accessories have been being destroyed at an alarming rate; these were saved from literally being melted into a liberal freedom hating puddle of metal. Kits we sold in the late 1990’s for below $200.00 are now commanding $800.00 and up, this trend will continue as these treasures of history and freedom disappear. This model was produced in minuscule numbers compared to a Belgian, Brazilian or Argentine variation. This rare military collectible is sure to appreciate in value as opposed to building another AK or AR15 type that won’t. Quantities are very limited; life can be full of regrets, don’t let missing out on this rare collectible be one of those regrets.

The kit has an MSRP of $549.95. Find out more on DSArms’ site here.
