Just an FYI to my fellow FAL owners.....I added one of these to my FAL and went to the range yesterday with co-workers. All I can say is Wow. What a difference. Recoil was drastically reduced. One of my female co-workers who normally doesn't shoot anything bigger than a 223 has been scared to shoot my FAL since it almost knocked her on her butt the last time she shot it (she is what you would call petite). I finally convinced her to give it another try with the compensator. She shot the FAL with ease and accuracy. She said it was comparable to her Mini-14, maybe slightly more but definitely in her comfort zone and I have to agree. These babies aren't cheap at $80 but they do their job well.
