    I have to say Imbel make excellent Fals, top notch quality.

    Our SP examples we're based on US civilian rifles, lacking the auto sear and and bolt carrier sear trip extension.

    A mate used to have one of the Imbel Para Fals in .22, it was the rifle that encouraged me to pursue a .22 semi kit for my L1A1s.

    Well, you should actually be able to do it by having the barrel turned...and you'll need the HK Breech mech or Imbel...and of course mags. Would look like a standard rifle.

    Folding stock, solid barrel, Fal reciver, inch pattern trigger group, HK blow back bolt group etc...

    I seem to recall the owner had issues with the odd inadvertent 'burst of automatic' .

    Anyone with a better memory than me (just about everyone), or better search skills?
    John, Just thinking out the box, maybe it was in the .22 Forum ? or maybe Gunboards ?

    Hi Geoff,



    Still searching, maybe it was in the .22 section, problem is it was a question posted mid thread by a UKicon chap who had issues with this build occasionally firing more than one round per pull of the trigger ..

    I just can't find the bloody thing.
