Barrels are threaded for a number of muzzle devices. The RFB is fed with cheap and plentiful FAL magazines, and ships with a 20-round mag.

    Way way way too many AR manufactures out there now. Im sure most of them wont last because they have no experience and their QC is probably lacking.

    I agree with Hughes. Its getting stupid. Its not like they differ in design. They are basically the same everything. No more patents!

  • AJ

    Black FAL’s are the wave of the future. Better looking I think.
