Default Federal Arms Corp. FA 91(HK 91/G3 Clone)

Made a trade on a Federal ArmsCorp/DCI Model FA 91 in .308. The rifle has a pinned 18" threaded barrel with German threaded/C clamped flash hider,DC(Dan Coonan) Industries, Inc. aluminum receiver with integrated picatinny, 8 slot scope rail, S-E-F german steel fire control group/lower with ergo pistol grip,German slim handguard and a Tapco tactical tri railed handguard with bi pod. The gun had olive drab furniture and metal but I removed it and applied 3 coats of Krylon Fusion flat black to the furniture and 3 coats of Dupli Color 500 degree engine enamel in flat cast iron shade to all the metal parts. The gun also came with 2,steel, G3,20 round magazines & 140 rounds of 1980 South African ball 7.62x51 ammo and a German Army mil spec cleaning kit.I've ordered a German Army 2 mag holder pouch and a leather sling with clamp. I mounted a Redfield 4x12x40 AO on high rings the integrated scope rail and fired the South African surplus and some Monarch/Serbian factory loaded steel 308s and the gun functioned perfectly,accurately and had VERY mild recoil. Maybe the delayed roller block action attenuates the recoil? I've fired 308s in single shot,bolt action & semi auto gas guns,but all out recoiled the "Clone." I know it's not top of the line,but this is a cool gun.

Enjoy it. I have the Century Arms CETME in the same caliber and truly enjoy shooting it. You'll be digging deeper into the pockets for ammo costs.

The Monarch was about $10 box of 20,but it's steel. Should the HK Clone be OK shooting it; worried about extractor/bolt /firing pin damaged,but, those parts are heavy duty and it's a surplus army gun,afterall?

Cast aluminum. Hope it holds up. I fired it again today,using South African ball 7.62x51, with the scope and w/o and it really rocked.

The MARS CETMEs were cast aluminum and they are rated among the top CETME models. Hang on tight to that one bro. you aint EVER gonna see the likes of that rifle in this country again.

The steel cased ammo will not hurt this gun. It was made to fire all types since it has a fluted chamber.

Ready on the left, ready on the right, ready on the firing line.

COMMENCE FIRE!!!!!

You can see the flute marks on the spent casings' necks.
When I clean this devil, I make sure the chamber flutes are clean, as well as the rest of the gun. Previously, I fired 20 rounds of Wolf steel 308 w/o any probs.
