Finally got my DSA FAL after a very long wait.
Next up, SCAR 17.

My 7.62x51 collection is limited to FALs and an Israeli K98k, but I've been thinking of adding an HK 91/G3 clone, CETME, or if funds permit, M1A, just for some variety.
you almost have a royal flush...
I love my PTR 91 clone, it's as nice as an original HK 91. It's the heavy barrel model, next I want their new GI model so I can A3 it
I have the GI model with the in-spec barrel so I can shoot surplus ammo. Not a fan of the retractable stock, the recoil is bad and I want as much stock as I can use.
I have an original HK 91 A3 and love it.. but I'm big and powerful and love recoil. Many of the PTR heavy barrels do just fine with surplus ammo. I haven't tried DAG in my PTR but have tried 2 types of surplus, WWB, as well as my handloads, no problems. Word is there was a bad run of shallow fluted PTR Thompson Center barrels that are long ago sold to the public, and the new ones are OK.. the run was in the center of a run of barrels and may be as many as 6000 barrels that don't like tar sealed surplus
I have an M-1A Squad Scout with a Mossy Oak synthetic stock. I dearly love it, but I have been unable to afford a decent red-dot sight for it, like an Aimpoint.
One thing I managed to get was a bunch of CMI 25 round M-14 mags. Checkmate Industries (CMI) has a contract with the U.S. Military to produce standard GI 20 round M-14 mags, and their 25 round mag is built to exactly the same standards. They are really cool, and they function perfectly.
Forget the SCAR, sell that AR-10 you got and get LWRC R.E.P.R.
Anyone know anything about the new Ruger Scout Rifle in .308? It's bolt action with a clip, 16" barrel and is priced way under the springfield.
