I just bought a as NIB Century Arms R1A1 on n IMBAL receiver for $371.00. Did I do OK? Do they make wood for this and if so what do I look for?

you stole it at that price. The receiver alone is worth the total price. Wood is available- keep an eye out in the marketplace.

Good buy. You will need to shoot it to see how well it runs (if if goes wthout drama then it was a steal) if it needs some tinkering it is still a good buy. The receivers alone are around that money...!!!

Yeah, that was a pretty good price...provided it's functional of course.
Well screw that, thats about what you'd pay for a stripped Imbel receiver without all the goodies attached. You did good.

As I'm sure you know by now, you stole the rifle at that price...:)

If looking for wood, you can also take a look at

Matt's wood is good stuff. And it works for parts count...

Thanks Guys! I thought this was something odd but I don't know that much about FAL's and thought I was overlooking something. I bought it at a local gun shop but they sell mainly handguns and shotguns. It runs GREAT! I put about 100 rounds through it.

Thanks for the support,
