In my list of want to do build projects building an original FAL is on the top. The very first FAL ever built was in 7.92×33 and was slightly different then the current FAL that we know today.
This is Pete’s , a friend of Gun Lab, version of a 7.92×33 rifle. His solution was to put in a new ejector block of his design with a spring loaded ejector. Then remove 0.900″ from the magazine to fit the 7.92×33 round.
A side view of Pete’s rifle. Notice the larger then normal ejector block.
You can see in this picture the fit on the magazine to the receiver.
You can see here how the cartridges set in the magazine.
