I love how the Romat looks!
What I don't like is how the wood makes the gun a pound heavier. Beech is dense stuff!
As it shipped from DSA it was a 9.9 lb. loaded weapon.
Adding the Romat furniture made it a 10.9 lb. gun. Changing the aluminum trigger housing made it an 11.4 lb. gun.
The L in FAL stands for léger or light. 11.4 lb. is too much.
So I've decided to give up on the Israeli narrative and embrace the more generic right arm of the free world configuration. And have a 10.4 lb. loaded rifle.
The things wrong with my Romat were almost legion. The lower was entirely wrong. The gas block, rear sights and muzzle were also wrong; with the barrel and gas block being the hardest part to correct.
