Got really excited for a minute

And then really disappointed.

Man, what happened to that rifle. It looks like it was built on an Original FN receiver with about 50 different parts kits.

Does anyone know if FN sent in FAL receivers by themselves? I hope no one parted out an original rifle to do this.

I bet the guy that built it thinks it is aaaaawsome. To bad he doesn't know what the rest of us like. It's a shame to see a perfectly good gun get "tricked out". Almost as bad as a lowrider 4x4 pick up truck I see occasionally. Useless modifications

If you stamp 308 Match on a gun does it make it shooter better groups?

Note, too, that all the "bubba" tactical parts have screwdriver marks all over them. Too bad you can't buy a good screwdriver (or file a cheap screwdriver) to fit the parts on a "thousand dollar" rifle.

BTW I found last week that an American Sears Craftsman 3/16" screwdriver exactly fits the grip screws on a 1911, almost a suction fit.

I have a Weaver Deluxe Tool kit and it fits all my needs for about $70. Why would anybody use a ill fitting K-Mart screwdriver on any weapon?

This is my... my Frankenstein!!!

It is superbly ugly. I hate that muzzle brake. That just kills me someone would totally ruin his FAL with a bunch of unnecessary crapola like that!
