I have one of the above, but having some problems. The charging handle apparently is not the correct one for the bolt. If it jams, and force is used to clear the cartridge from the chamber, the handle slips back and then the gun can't be returned to battery and the bolt can't be removed. I'd like to send this rifle to a smith who really knows these guns to replace whatever parts are necessary ato insure proper and reliable function. Does anyone know of one in the Tucson, AZ area?
thanks.

I know a really good one in Flagstaff. Send Derek Huffman (AZTEK ARMS) an e-mail at derekhuffman@hotmail.com.

Not right next door but Mark Graham at Arizona Responsa Systems is one of the best FAL smiths in the USA www.arizonaresponsesystems.com.
He's in the Phoenix area.

Almost forgot, Mark Graham aka Gunplumber, won't work on Entreprise receivers. Some CAI FALs were built on Imbels and some on Entreprise receivers.
