Greetings,

I would like to have a sand cut bolt in my metric FAL. There seem to be a lot of L1A1 sand cut bolts for sale. Can I use an L1A1 bolt in a metric receiver?

Thanks

Apache7,
you can use the inch pattern sand cut bolt and carrier in your metric FAL and vise/versa just make sure if you already have a FAL rifle that you are shooting and you want to change out the bolt asy that you reheadspace it.
or if you use the same bolt and just change the carrier you will be ok to go I would check the head space just to be on the safe side. hope this helps.
