If you add a picture of the magazine, that will tell you.
If it's a smaller catch on the front that looks like a small curve, it's metric.
If it's a larger catch that's more squared it's inch.
Inch is on the left. Metric is on the right
Jed , Funny the guy I bought it from sold me each mag with both of the different catches u pictured. And they both fit the rifle. Ive just never fired it so im not sure how they both feed. Will one feed better then the other?
I believe if they both fit, then its an inch rifle. Dont quote me on that though. Im no expert on FALs.
Looks inch! (folding rear sight, sand cut bolt, open ear front sight, large carry handle)
Is that an imbel Receiver?
Traditionally, the L1A1 is an inch pattern, used by Canada: L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If there is one of each, chances are it's an Inch pattern that *may* use metric mags.
I have an Oly-Arms FAL. Originally I had Metric mags, but they would drop slightly at the nose area, which would result in the bullets stovepiping into the receiver slightly below the feed ramp. I switched to the Inch magazines, and the problem went away. While I have not measured, I'm of the impression that the specs that Oly used were slightly off due to some reading.
Here's a link to Century Arms' presentation of the differences: The main difference between the inch and metric receivers is the cut in the forward face of the magazine well
Just to confirm, it's a CAI (Century Arms International) receiver, correct?
I hope the information helps you and please know that it's not to distract from your sale. If I had the money, we'd be talking
Its no problem, like I said in the post I dont know much about this rifle let alone any FAL. So I appreciate the information.
But yes its a CAI receiver if my eyes serve me correct. Maybe I should take the rifle out to the range and test it as I havnt fired it yet to see how both mags perform. I can tell the mag with the larger catch sits alot higher than the other mag.
My purpose of selling this rifle is to put the cash towards a DSArms SA58. Is it worth it and do you know the difference in the 2 rifles?
The differences are matters of opinion. Depending on who you speak with, the order is:
