FN-FAL in 7.92×33

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.
