Continuing my tradition of running my guns hard and Israeli-style, I was very happy to kick off the new year with the Green Ops Defensive Carbine I Clinic this past Sunday. This was the third time I’ve taken this particular class, and I can say that each and every time, I’ve learned something new.
This time around, I decided to go with my IDF Colt Commando carbine clone. Yes, that’s right… I went with a plain-old AR-15 for once. Read on for my impressions of the class!
Just got an email in my inbox that DSA has released the “DSA SA58 FAL 21″ Israeli Light Barrel Rifle – Officer Grade Hebrew War Hammer” for $1500. Looks like they got a shipment of IDF “light/regular” FN FAL kits, and these are the builds on the nicest of those kits. Presumably, they will have some cheaper guns on the less nice kits, or we’ll see those pop up at Apex or Sarco. They’ve got IDF markings on the receiver, which is a nice touch.
I’ve previously reviewed the heavy barrel IDF FN FALO. Nice rifle for its time, but overly heavy. This model shouldn’t be quite as bad due to the barrel profile and the lack of bipod, but it’ll still be a heavy beast compared to an AR-308 or HK91.
