FN-Fal 7.92×33 second version

With the last post we made on the 7.92×33 FN-FAL we showed a FAL that had a new ejector block and magazine made to allow the rifle to shoot 7.92×33. This post will show a different approach to reach the same conclusion, shooting 7.92×33.¬† This series of photographs comes from another friend¬† of Gun Lab and how he converted his rifle to use MP-44 magazines.

IMG_0579acHe also put a side rail on it for a scope. You can also see the flapper magazine release for the MP-44 magazines.

A great deal of work went into building this rifle.

    I would have thought someone like DSA arms would be offering FALs in the original intermediate calibers. .280 British for one.

    Shortening all those parts and making them work along with making the rec. take the MP mag is an awesome piece of work!
    WOW!! Hats off to the craftsman who did it.

    Where do you find a barrel for 7.92 Kurz? Been looking for years and nobody makes barrels in that diameter.

      What are you needing to barrel to 7.92×33. A friend of mine uses 98 Mauser barrels and adds a sleeve to bring it up to size. Other people have used Madsen 8mm barrels. Another good choice is MG-13,34 or 42 barrels or even the machine gun barrels from Sarco in 8×63. Hope this helps.
