View Full Version : SARCO's fixable para stocks?
March 04, 2006, 19:33
I was wondering about Sarco's fixer para stocks, Are thes an easy fix or should I not waist my time? If it's just a pin or a spring that needs to be replaced or would you have to machine a new part? I know the saving is only $50 bucks, but that would be another part I need;) Any help or insight to these humper specials is appreciated. Thanx in advance, Tony:)

Do a search in this forum for sarco para for the last year. There is more info than you want to know. There was a big group buy on the files for the humper specials. might search that too. I got 3 sent one back for exchange very happy with sarco on all three I have now.

I bought 5 or 6 of them when we had a group buy, and I think they are a good deal for someone who likes to tinker and save money. Most of the people who buy the tools to build their own FAL won't have any problem with these. Most of them have some bent pivot pin issues, since it is a weak point in the design, but easily replaced with a solid pin. Many here have repaired the factory pin and button assembly too.

I wouldn't buy ANY of the SARCO para stocks!!!
In their Ad they say the good stock is EXCELLENT. but it's a close fair to poor!!
Here's what they say "These are the super a rare "Rhodesian" para stocks!! Excellent condition... $149.50 ea, 3 for $395.00 FAL184"
THEY ARE NOT EXCELLENT!! and I wouldn't touch their "Humper special".
If I had it to do over again I'd get the TDW Imbel Para stock! It has all the parts plus a sling swivel.

if you dont want to work on it yourself, you might send it to ricketts for a fix and refinish. at elast talk to ricketts. i have 2. the only thing wrong with them is that the paint was flaking off of the rear tubes. in this day and age of price gouging and parts being banned it isnt a bad deal.
just my opinion

Good luck getting an Imbel para setup from TDW. They have not had them for a long time.
You can get one from DSA for less money and it has 3 922(r) compliance parts if you use one of their bolt carriers. I don't know about their availability, but I know it's better than TDW's para setup.
I have seen refinished Humpers and they can turn out fine. The are a little rough, but after they are fixed, there is plenty of life in them.
