Fal Tarkov or SA-58 OSW (Operations Specialist Weapon) created by American manufacturer DSA (David Selveggio Arms) is a legitimate clone of the FAL, built on the same Steyr-Daimler-Puch production line as the StG-58. It might have a longer barrel, an aluminum-alloy lower receiver, and better Glass-filled Nylon furniture.
Civilian variants are semi-automatic, while military and law enforcement customers can obtain select-fire models with a fully automated cyclic rate of 750 rounds per minute. The DSA-58 can utilize any FAL magazine with metric measurements.
A scope is an essential component of every firearm. It connects your sight to your rifle, and you must decide the best mounting technique for your purposes. This video will go through the best scope mounting solutions for Fal Tarkov as well as how to enhance your rifle’s performance. We’ll also advise you on how to select the best scope foundation for your needs.
Precision is desired by gun enthusiasts, but not everyone is prepared to invest in the latest and greatest for a variety of reasons, including pricing, concern about their skill, and boredom caused by a bulging gun safe. When a customer drools over a task-specific rifle or optic, or when you reveal new fine-tuned, you can know since you have long-distance rounds in your inventory.
The scope Mounting steps of a Fal Tarkov
- The Mounting Surfaces Must Be Clean
The first step in mounting your scope is to adequately prepare your rifle for the connection of the scope base. Place the rifle in a gun vise, on a table, or in another safe/secure location, with the receiver’s head pointing up. To protect the finish, use rags or other padding. A comparable one-piece type foundation and screws of the right length are required. Clean the barrel and scope base parts of any oil, grease, or dirt.
After Remove the cover screws from the top of the receiver to remove any oil, debris, or dirt that may have caused the scope base to not correctly seat onto your rifle. Use the appropriate size screwdriver to remove the screws.
- Make Certain and Level the Playing Field
Place the rifle in a gun vise or on a comfortable bench to replace the rear sight. Tap the sight base at the dovetail from left to right with a wood or fiber dowel and a non-marring hammer until the sight is freed from the barrel.
After cleaning your rifle, secure it in a vice, lead sled, or another mechanism. When locking your pistol, you should also level it. This step just requires a short-level you, which can be found in practically any tiny toolkit. Place the level on top of the receiver to adjust your weapon as needed.
- Set up the Base
Replace the filler screws from the top of the barrel first, using a small, thin-bladed gunsmithing screwdriver. Set the base onto the barrel.
Before attaching the scope base to your rifle, apply a little amount of gun oil to the contact surfaces. Depending on the material, this will help prevent rust from accumulating between the receiver and the scope base.
Because the recoil from firing your rifle may cause some of the screws to twist and lose their grip over time, you should consider using a thread locker on the screws and nuts. This ensures that everything remains in position and that the screws are properly placed when tightened.
Only use a thread locker that is easily removed. Never use permanent or red Loctite! A permanent thread locker must be released at temperatures of up to 500°F! Unless you’re an expert blacksmith or gunsmith, heating your receiver to those degrees to remove an optic mount might potentially kill your rifle.
After softly tightening the base and adding a little quantity of thread locker, visually and manually inspect the receiver to check that the screws are not protruding into the action. By moving your fingertips through the action, you can easily guarantee that the screws do not strike your bolt. This ensures that everything stays in place and that the screws are tightened appropriately.
Heating your receiver to those temperatures to remove an optic mount might potentially damage your rifle unless you’re a professional blacksmith or gunsmith.
- Putting on the Scope Rings and Putting the Scope to the Test
Visually and manually inspect the receiver to ensure that the screws are not protruding into the action after lightly tightening the base and applying a little amount of thread locker.
You may easily ensure that the screws do not strike your bolt by sliding your fingertips through the motion. Many gunsmiths use a drop of the replaceable thread-locking compound to keep the screws tight. Tighten the nuts firmly but not too.
Before mounting the upper rings, install the bottom rings first and then test-fit your sight. When tightening screws with a Picatinny base, push the rings as close to the closest rail as possible. This will allow the rings to sit flush on the rail and not shift as a result of recoil.
Insert the sight into the bottom set of scope rings once you’ve secured the weapon. Check that the scope rings are properly distanced from the objective bell and adjustment turrets to allow for any modifications that may be required. Apply after finding the appropriate spacing and ring compliance.
Apply thread locker and manually tighten the screws after verifying the appropriate spacing and ring compliance. Because you’ll still need to adjust the eye relief, don’t tighten the screws just yet.
- Selecting Eye Relief
Install your scope rings and/or scope according to the instructions that came with them. Always make sure you have enough eye relief. To avoid gun damage, always use a suitable gun base and screws of the right length.
Setting the eye relief right will assist to prevent the appearance of a black halo while looking through a rifle sight. Pick up your gun and shoulder it as though you were heading into battle. The challenge here is to hold the rifle while shutting your eyes.
Then, find a comfortable spot to rest your face on your stock’s comb. This will help you find the natural location of your handgun. You will not rely on the optic to assist you with head positioning.
Open your eyes and check for appropriate eye relief after the weapon is comfortably shoulderable. To find the sweet spot, carefully slide the scope forward or backward. When properly positioned, you should have a clear field of view.
If you continue to see a black halo through your scope, don’t be afraid to move the scope rings. Depending on your arrangement, you may need to allow for more or less wiggle area.
- Extending Your Purpose
After you’ve chosen the optimal position for your eye relief, it’s time to level the scope.
Secure the weapon once again by placing your level on the middle turret. Make sure the reticle is horizontal and parallel to your barrel. Making sure your reticle is level allows you to compensate for windage and elevation in the field.
Twist all of the scope ring screws once the scope has been placed and leveled. As though fitting a tire, stiffen each screw in a cross pattern. This ensures that the rings are uniformly distributed across the front and rear of the scope. Allow the thread locker to fully cure before shooting any rounds for the best grip.
- Extending Your Vision
After you’ve determined the best position for your eye relief, level the scope.
Place your level on the middle turret to re-secure the weapon. Check that the reticle is horizontal and parallel to the barrel. Maintaining a level reticle helps you to correct for windage and height in the field.
Once the scope has been installed and leveled, tighten all of the scope ring screws. Stiffen each screw in a cross pattern, as if fitting a tire. This ensures that the rings are dispersed evenly throughout the front and back of the scope. Allow the thread locker to cure completely before shooting any rounds to ensure the optimum grip.
What is the point of sniper rifles when semi-automatic rifles such as the FAL Tarkov are available?
The M21 rifle is seen above, while the M40 rifle is shown below. The m21 is a sniper rifle based on the m14, which was utilized by the US army while the rest of NATO employed the FAL.
The m21 is more than simply a scoped m14. Tolerances have a large impact on the accuracy and dependability of a weapon. The M21 has tighter tolerances than the M14, which compromises dependability but considerably improves accuracy. A bolt-action rifle is even more precise.

I’ve been passionate about shooting with scopes, red dot sights, and all kinds of gun optics for years now. And during that time, I’ve learned a lot – often the hard way. I’ve wasted thousands of dollars on scopes that turned out to be duds, and I’ve also found some real gems along the way.
