I own AR10, HK91/G3, and FAL. For accuracy, I pick AR10. For all around, hands down the FAL platform.

Thank You.. I have read some good reviews about all 3 of these..

If I go with the FAL (SA-58), should I get a type 1 or type 2 receiver?

See #2 on DSA's FAQ page:
http://www.dsarms.com/faq.asp
Some say Type I can crack after extensive full auto firing. I don't know for sure and don't care since most of us can only have semi auto. Besides your personal preference of the cosmetic look, if you don't think you will ever need the carry handle, go with Type I without carry handle cut; if you want it as light as possible, go with Type II, but it's not much lighter.
If you are serious about getting a FAL, go to the FALfiles forum and start reading.

I have no experience with the FNAR but I like the other 2. I chose the AR10 since it was the platform I was most familiar with. I have an Armalite model and I've not had any reliablility issues with it at all. I'll probably swap the trigger out sometime. I personally wouldn't own a DPMS as I've seen a few .308s in classes that choked repetatively. Like all ARs, it could have been the shooter, mags, ammo, rifle or a combo of all. I've seen several Armalites run all day. Just my very small 2 cents.

Ar10 versus FAL no contest. I was weaned on the FAL in the Service. You cannot kill that Rifle.

I have AK47s (milled and stamped receivers), AR10/15s (9mm, 7.62x39, .22lr, .223, .308), HK 91/G3s (collapsible and fixed stock), and 1 Imbel FAL (Imbel kit on Imbel receiver) with Trilux scope. If I'm asked to keep only 1 rifle, it will definitely be the FAL. It's currently my SHTF rifle. Of course I have pistols and shotguns for shorter range and other purposes.
Some argue Imbels are as good as DSA if not better. Imbel is now the only FN licensed manufacturer with FN equipment in the world.

Any idea who has them in stock.. I have been looking..I see Armalite offers a 20 and 25 rounder..

Also seeking Mags for the FNAR (20 Rounders) - my shooting buddy just purchased the FNAR - after I looked at it and decided on ordering an AR-10..

Thanks!
