Re: Kind of diggin' Paul Harrell on youtube.

I like his videos, I just started watching them though. Sage Dynamics and Garand Thumb are two others I watch a lot of on YT.

Re: Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

Makes sense , I seen those same numbers over on FALfiles. Maybe I will suck it up and buy both but usually ive got a rule that I buy 12 mags+500 rounds of ammo with any new platform I add to the collection. Sounds like a sound plan. And FALfiles is where I got my info too. It seemed reasonable. I d...

More cowbell? No AR15? Sounds like an AR10 to me. Never seen a worn out AR10 reciever.
"More cowbell"? I dont get the reference. I already have AR15s though.

Re: Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

It may not matter - beyond round count - forged vs cast in a FAL. But forged is absolutely better. I had a great YT vid that explained it very simply. But I don't recall what it was called now. Forged keeps the metal aligned with the flow of metal going thru the entire part. Because it's basically ...

Re: Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

The cast FAL receivers get reviews both ways, supposedly FN said cast frames wear out 50% faster though. So you pay $1,000 and get a certain lifespan, or pay $1,500 and get 50% more lifespan. I guess you literally get what you pay for? I don't even like my milled Yugo AK's. Cause they're just to he...

Re: Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

Well crap. I"m a bit cautious about forged receivers. I understand they are ok for ARs, but not so good for AK trunnions. The forces from 7.62x51 make me cautious about a cast receiver for a FAL. But if other tests prove them to be good, then ok! The Arsonal is more of a known quantity. And mags ar...

Re: Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

You have a million ARs. The AK would basically be more of the same. The FAL would actually be something different, and it looks like the Voyager is a forged receiver? I vote the FAL. But I love the AK. And I would look up customer service experiences with DSA. I have heard different things, so do y...

Arsenal 107 vs DSA FAL voyager?

Im considering getting something with a little more punch than 5.56 and im not wanting an AR15. For a general purpose PAW type rifle which one is do you like more, why? I dont shoot much past 200 yards and dont need much more accuracy then 5-6" at 200 yards.
Which one of these rifles is more durable?

If you read the other thread and went out and bought all six or eight guns yesterday I can assure you are on the right track and will not regret it. After you got everything home and unboxed you are probably wondering what to do next? https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=121759...

AR10 longetivity and service life?

Will .308 wear out parts faster on the AR10 than the 5.56 does on the AR15? Any real differences to reliability and service life? Will the AR10s bolts, barrels and receivers hold up as long?

Im not in the market for one but I have owned a couple AR10s before and ive always wondered about this.
