    Pelican Case with XCR and FAL

    I cut up some new foam for my Pelican case to hold both the XCR and my new DSA FAL with one ACOG. I still plan to add a Sig pistol, probably my P220, but here's the new setup so far.


    Here's another view.


    Here's a closeup of the right side - the ACOG has an elastic cover that came with it. Note the quick disconnect sling mount on the XCR for a Vickers two point sling. It has the split ring attachment from Blue Force Gear.


    Close up of the center where the two vertical grips almost touch. The XCR has a Tango Down while the FAL has a FAB Defense Line grip. The thing that looks like a hole on the handguard of the XCR is the Daniel Defense rail mount QD sling mount. The XCR has magpul rail covers while the FAL has ladder type rail covers.


    Here's some shots of my new DSA FAL. This one has the extreme duty extended scope mount and full length rail interface handguards with Robar NP3 coating on the internals. This shows the grip area with the NP3 coated parts sort of a satin grey against the black Duracoat. Very striking looking in person.


    This shows where the rail interface handguard and the extreme duty extended scope mount meet. Note the ladder style rail cover. I didn't have enough to cover the rail on the top.


    A slightly different angle. Note the handguard is completely open for cooling and the operating rod with it's recoil spring is clearly visible.


    A close up of the FAB vertical grip.


    And finally, the muzzle area showing the flash hider and sling mount. The silver object is the gas valve adjustor. It can be adjusted by hand.

    SigRules,

    all I can say is: Wow!

    That is a stunning FAL especially with the NP3 accents.

    Be Safe!

    I've been stuck in LA for three weeks and biting my tongue waiting to get back to Denver to take it back to the range to play some more. I plan to mount the ACOG, zero it and leave it on for Elk season as a backup.

    Some kinda back up you have there!

    The NP3 treatment, they can do it internally, or was it just done on the removable internals? I would still like to get my new P220 Stainless Elite coated, but I'm waiting to fit the Sig Hard Chrome Threaded barrel to it first. What parts did you get NP3 coated, and was it expensive? I have visited their web site but I'm not sure how much of your rifle was coated?

    O.S.O.K.

    It was a special order option from DSA Arms. I believe the cost was an additional $250, but check their website for current pricing, and they coated all the steel parts except springs. That's why the selector lever, take down release, trigger, etc., are all silver looking in the pictures. I don't think they did the operating rod but I haven't taken it apart to see yet.

    Sigsrule, Looks great!!!!! Only thing I didn't like on one of my FALs was the "Belgain" style small safety lever. You had to shift the rifle to take the safety off (same as yours is equipped with). I have since replaced it with the Aussie style lever. Looks good and works good. You may want to look into getting one. Makes getting off safe quick and easy. Gunner

    I sighted it in with the ACOG and took it with me elk hunting as a backup gun. Never took it out though and now I'm back on the road for three weeks with only one day at home during that time, so it will be awhile before I play with it some more.
