To insure customer satisfaction, ARS will only work with IMBEL (Brazil), DGFM-FMAP (Argentine), other licensed FN receivers, DSA , or Coonan. ARS will not work on the low quality products from Hesse/Vulcan Arms, Olympic Arms, Willams Arms Company, Century Arms International, Entreprise Arms, or DPMS. Specific custom parts such as stocks and grips are available from vendors on our links page. ARS carries some spare parts for FAL-type rifles.
Federal regulations require 7 US parts from a list of 20 major components. The 1994 moratorium on "assault weapon" manufacture has expired. FAL rifles may have flash suppressors, bayonet mounts, grenade launchers, and folding stocks, providing the 7 US parts requirement is still met.
One flat rate covers most normal processes. On your parts kit, quality receiver, and 7 US parts, I will:
clean and inspect all parts
deburr parts for function
deburr parts for cosmetics (if refinishing)
renumber bolt, bolt carrier, and lower receiver to match new upper receiver

FAL parts either meet factory specification or they do not. There is generally no "adjusting" or "tuning" of components other than minor honing of the hammer, trigger, and sear engagement surfaces. If they are in specification, they work; if they are not in specification, they are either repaired or replaced.
