So, I went to the pawn shop to get some of my guns back. While I was in there, I noticed they had an FAL. Turns out, it's a metric FAL, built on an IMBEL receiver by CAI. Yes, I know, CAI is a bunch of monkeys most of the time, but I inspected it as thoroughly as I could and decided it was well assembled. Everything's straight, it has double feed ramps, it all looks good. So I bought it. Overpaid by about $200, but with as hard to find as FALs are normally in these parts, I'm just happy to have it. So, on to the reason for this thread. I decided that it needed a good stripping and cleaning before I see how it handles. While the barrel and chamber areas are fine and pretty clean, I don't think the gas system has ever been taken apart. Black residue everywhere. Trying to take it apart, I accidentally broke the gas adjust detent spring and am unable to drift out the gas tube retaining pin. Any help on where to get a new spring and how to get that damnable pin out? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
