Just bought a DSA FAL SA58. Unfortunately it came with no manual. Looking for info. as to field stripping for cleaning. Any help out there????
Thanks for your time......and HELP.

First, remove the mag, pull the bolt back, and ensure the chamber is empty. Stick your finger in there to be sure you don't feel a case.
Next, push the lock lever back and let the upper & lower split apart- it is hinged. Grab the small metal rod (The bolt "Rat-Tail") and pull the bolt carrier/bolt out of the gun.
If you have a standard sheet metal top cover, it removes by sliding it backwards.
Next, use the tip of a bullet, a screwdriver, etc. to push in the retainer on the gas plug. Rotate it until the gas plug, gas piston & spring pop out of the gas tube. Pull the gas piston/spring out of the gas tube.
Viola, you are field stripped.
