FAL HANDGUARD | FAL SA58 BELGIAN TYPE HANDGUARD

I can’t think of anyone who has been in the FAL parts business longer than DS Arms. I remember in the early 1990’s calling them from an advertisement in the shotgun news and ordering magazines for my Century Arms “Century Sporter” L1A1.

New manufacture DS ARMS FAL SA58 Belgian Type Handguard. Constructed from fiberglass reinforced polymer, with the proper metal hardware already installed. These military style handguards will not warp or flex under excessive heat. Improved design also has reinforcements in the front, center and rear for extra rigidity. Stamped steel front insert molded in the polymer ensures a tight fit on the gas block. Side cutouts allow for folding bipod. Holes on the underside of the handguard allow for installation of Harris or Versa-Pod bipods. Handguard will need material removed on the interior if mounting to DSA medium contour barrel profiles. Includes handguard screw and washer. Made in the USA.

SPECS: Fits – Metric FAL rifles. Reinforced fiberglass polymer construction with steel front insert.  Includes screw and washer.  Weight – 7.36 oz.

Century Sporter Rifle L1A1 FN FAL – Judging by the purchase date which if I recall correctly was July 1993 I have one of the earlier model Century Sporter’s “Century L1A1”. This gun is assembled from both inch and metric L1A1 (FN FAL) parts. The rifle is made up of an inch pattern parts kit fitted to a metric upper receiver. The rifle accepts metric magazines only. Newer models accept either magazine though the inch patterned might wobble slightly. The Century Sporter ships with what I believe to be a fiberglass Bell & Carlson thumbhole stock painted black and a matching fiberglass handguard . The rifle also ships with flash suppressor removed from the barrel. My unit arrived minus a carry handle. There wasn’t much internet at the time so a call to DS Arms had a new carry handle and about 20 new magazines on their way to me. At that time FN FAL Magazines were only a couple of bucks.
