Hopefully a prototype will be in existence in the first half of 2003.

What's the word? I searched but couldn't find anything.

ACE stocks is behind this. There are pictures over at FALfiles for the prototypes, but ACE never emailed me back (few months ago) about the progress.

Where the heck you gonna put your off hand? Needs a k-grip or something up front. And I don't like the exposed trigger operating pushrod/lever...

I really, really, really want one of those.... and a regular FAL or two also. I won't be able to for quite some time, maybe by then they'll be done!

Well, it will probably be better than that bullpup M-14.

I've been waiting for KKF (http://www.kurtskustomfirearms.citymax.com/page/page/8932.htm) to make a .308 conversion for the M17s. If it took FAL mags it would be the SHIzNiT!!!!

That's different :) Kinda cute in a way :evil:

I think I may go the SBR route on my next FAL build, something similar to the DSA OSW.

Larry Correia's is way better than Ace's abomination, which has no relation to Larry's design other than that it is also a bullpup, and also based on the FAL.

I hope they provide an asbestos glove for the off hand. Looks like it's going to be a little hot :what:

well, anything new is a well-forgotten old.
The FAL Prototype No.2 of 1950 was a bullpup.
