DSA, Inc. Introduces Two New FAL SA58 Rifles for 2014
Matt Korovesis 01.16.14
DSA, Inc., an American manufacturer of metric-pattern FAL rifles, will be introducing two new FAL SA58 models this year.
Available for purchase now is the FAL SA58 Voyager, a more affordably priced variant of the FAL SA58 full-length rifles. In contrast with other DSA FALs, the Voyager’s receiver is cast instead of forged. It features a classic 21-inch-long barrel, with a 16-inch variant in the works. It has a simplified rear sight and the barrel is not cut for a bipod. It uses “new old stock” Steyr furniture and does not have any accessory or optic rails. It will be priced at $1,200.
DSA, Inc. plans to release another new FAL SA58, the Lightweight, in about four months. Living up to its name, the Lightweight attempts to cut down on the FAL’s typically-substantial heft by shearing off non-essential mass wherever possible. It weighs 7.3 pounds unloaded and utilizes a pencil-profile 16-inch barrel topped with a compensator to help tame the rifle’s recoil. The Lightweight will retail for $2,150.
Despite its cut-down bulk, the Lightweight still features a top-mounted Picatinny rail and a railed gas block. Both new FAL SA58s will be chambered in .308 Winchester.
Note added 1-20: This article has been updated to include a price for the Lightweight rifle.
