Oh, and as a person who owns two M-14's and an FN-FAL, I can say that I like the FAL more, even though it's heavier.

I'm leaning towards a century FAL.  What moa can I expect from a century out of the box?

Cardboard box. Usually a mag, and a cleaning kit.

It will be banged around a bit, and the finish won't be perfect. This is normal for a converted gun that may be 30+ years old.

The gun will work very well, though.

I uploaded the AGI FN-FAL video if you want to watch it:

I also think the iron sights on the FN-FAL are horrible.
I don't like the rear sight. I was thinking about getting one of these, but it's $200.

They're 800 bucks? Seems like a deal for what you get.

I'll vouch for the century FAL too.  Mine works great.

If I had unlimited funds, I'd go for a SOCOM-16.

Being a left-handed rifle shooter, I notice that the BAR comes in left-hand, and has removable magazines. It's certainly not overly expensive, at 800-1000 on Gunbroker.com, nor is it heavy.

The BAR it is pretty, which might offend the more "tactical" folks. :)

All that said, I have no personal experience with any 308. Sorry.

What kind of grouping can I expect at a 100 yards from a century FAL?   I want a rifle that's capable of 2 inches or less.

I get around 3-4" out of mine with Brown Bear ammo. But I'm still learning.

I had something that looked like a G3 in Iraq.  It was nice.

So, I have been putting together a RockRiver AR-15 (Incredibly slow right now cause of Obama). I purchased

AR0120NMX     Lower Receiver Parts Kit / Two Stage Trigger, ERGO Grip, Ambi, Black     $200.00
AR0375X     Mid-Length A4 Upper Half with A free floating Quad Rail, a Chrome Lined 1:9 barrel, RRA Flip Front Sight    $720.00
AR0250     Tactical CAR Buttstock Kit, Black, Six Position Collapsible    $75.00
AR3812L     A.R.M.S. #40L Low Profile Flip-up Rear Sight   $119.00

Plus the Stripped lower receiver for $220

so total of $1337 (Yeah Elite).

1. Did I get a good price?
2. Can I do the same with the FAL?
