Bought one in FDE from another forum member, took an almost 6hr round trip to pick it up but worth it to save the hassle of a transfer plus no one in govt. knowing I have one. First impression was wow it has an ambi mag release, sweet. second impression was disassembly is not very intuitive, read the manual thoroughly. The trigger while heavy is crisp. Next step is find a good scope within the $1200 range and an Ergo grip,can't stand a pistol grip with the rigid finger groove that ever fits my finger. One question. I found a bright blue film of corrosion in the flash hider and in the gas plug, but none on he piston and none on the swab I ran through the barrel. It came off easily with Hoppes and Qtips so no problem there. I've ran a lot of different ammo through my FAL & .308 AR including surplus Malaysian and I've never encountered this before. What could cause this kind of buildup to occur only on the parked parts but not on the bare steel of the piston? And I know pics or it didn't happen so here goes my first attempt at posting a picture. Including an older cousin also.
