Has anyone used the straight pull fal


I’ve fired a straight pull Imbel and a L1A1 and the extraction was.....er....”a bit of an effort” on both, don’t know if it was down to the ammo/cases but compared to my SVD they required a lot more effort.The 54r case has more of a taper than 7.62x51 NATO/.308 Winchester so that may make a difference.


I think the non-tapered cases don't help but it was my understanding that the FAL had problems because unlike the SVD, AK, AR, Garand etc the FAL is not a rotating bolt which really helps with extraction when it's not semi-auto. I've seen a VZ-58 in .223 have the same problem.
