    Anyone know someone good who can shorten a FAL barrel from 21 to 18 inches? someone in greater PDX would be ideal.

    Ole's gun shop in Salem can also do it. We have sent them 20+ barrels for cut, crown, thread jobs and they do superb work. Fast turn around time too. If you're going to put a comp on your barrel I would highly recommend the Primary weapon systems FSC FAL compensator. It really works well and takes about 40% of the movement (recoil) out of the gun.

    these things really do work and are quite amazing and look cool too but on a .308 they are LOUD!
