This is one expensive ass gun I have some hands on experience with outside of a shooting range since my cousin owns one. That means I can play with it just about whenever I want! DSArms RPD carbine. 7.62x39, 100 round semi-automatic belt fed. This thing is a BITCH to shoulder at almost 15 pounds (probably about 18 fully loaded). It is a fucking blast to shoot!!
#dsarms FAL with cerakoting and stippling work done by @sg_firearms and @weaponworx . Giving South African Game Wardens the tools, training, and equipment they need to take the fight to the poachers wiping out the African Rhino population. Saw a lot of tacticool shit and I’ll take more pics of it tomorrow, but today this took the prize. When talking to one of the guys at #dsarms though, I could tell this was personal for him. #igmilitia #savingprivaterhino #fal
Realized I hadn’t taken any pictures of my Israeli FAL with her new dust cover on for you all! Anyhoo, here it is: DSA’s numbered Picatinny dust cover, and I already took her to the range to test it out, and went off without a hitch (and maybe even better than the standard cover… altho it may have been due in part to the recoil buffer I added). Optics will be on after payday, along with TAPCO’s SAW-style grip for the FAL.
Custom Cerakote finished FAL that the owner/seller says is comprised of IMBEL parts built by DSArms. Really clean and eye catching build. Rail is from DSArms and the stock is from Magpul, both of which add some much needed ergonomics to the FAL but at the cost of more weight on an already hefty main battle rifle. (GRH)
A semi-auto attempt to modernize the Russian RPD, the RPDS carbine from DSArms has noticeable differences. The barrel has been shortened and fluted, with a muzzle brake attached. New handguards allow for mounting accessories since the original bipod is now gone. AR-15 stock and SAW grip although add a tactical look, some purists prefer the classic configuration. (GRH)
Belt-fed firearm chambered in 7.62x39mm, most of the semi-auto civilian examples on the market are built on Polish kits. There are quite a few Russian RPD’s, which tend to be a bit more desirable. Generally you’ll see RPD’s built by either Project Guns, Vector Arms, Wiselite or DSArms. As for which one is considered the best, its debatable. (GRH)
Semi-auto 7.62x39mm belt-fed firearm originating from Russia. Semi-auto versions are still available on the U.S market, largely from DSArms, a company known mostly for their FAL rifles. This example has what is most likely a reproduction transit chest; a nice touch that can add quite some value. (GRH)
Possibly the three most famous and easily recognized main battle rifles out there; the FAL, M14 and G3. All three are still in service in one form or another with some military. The U.S and Germany army still deploy the M1A and G3 in a DMR role. India may still have a sniper variant of the FAL in service. DSArms did enter an accurized FAL for the U.S Army’s SASS (Semi-Automatic Sniper System) trials but did not succeed. (GRH)
One of the cheaper belt-fed firearm options on the market, RPD’s can be found from different manufacturers like DSArms, Vector Arms and Project Guns. When you compare the prices of the RPD against other Com-Bloc belt-feds like the PKM, SG43 and UK59, the RPD is the bargain of the bunch. (GRH)
U.S made FAL variant made and sold by DSArms. It features a 21″ match grade heavy bull barrel with a target crown. An optional match grade trigger upgrade was available as well. Some owners report 1 MOA accuracy with handloaded ammo, which is pretty good for a FAL. The Greywolf was part of a series of FAL rifles promoted back in 2004 but are no longer in production. (GRH)
Very interesting photo because it has African Park Rangers armed with custom built FAL’s from DSArms. According to DSArms, they’re used by park rangers against poachers looking for elephant and rhino ivory. They are not select-fire, being semi-auto only to simplify training. The short profile and side-folding paratrooper stock make it compact, ideal for the dense brush. (GRH)
