Fal content??? Well I reckon the barrel wrench could be used on a FAL or most anything. And the whole thing I'm duplicating is an FN design....Like this:

What size bar stock are we seeing?
I see you got the FN 30-11 stock.
From Numrich Gunparts?
Me too. :)
Which action are you using?
Found a butt plate that fits yet?
Any ideas on a suitable bipod?
(the original used a MAG bipod. I expect
that will be rather spendy...)
Thanks for the tips.
...and yes, WECSOGing an FN Mauser sniper
rifle is worth points toward your Associate
Degree. (Drawn any blood yet?)

HiYa Wireguy - The Pinkster and I are building up a pair of 'em.
Yep, those are the Numrich FN30-11 stocks. We're using Czech VZ24 actions - sturdy, well made and fit.
That bar stock is 1" square 6061T6 aluminum left over from another project.
I don't know which barrel I will use yet....we're pondering. Cheap = Adams & Bennett, but we've been thinking of some mid-range stuff like ER Shaw. What are you going to use?
Buttplate - I'm going to use an FAL rubber one - fits the stock as if it once was an FAL.... :)
As far as the bipod, we'll modify an StG bipod to work in there on a homemade target rail. Crude, yet effective.
What are you planning to use as far as trigger and trigger guard??

In general, I'm still looking.
(Very poor right now...) ;)
I've heard rumors of 'FN sniper barrels' floating aroung. Keep your eyes open.
Triger? Have no idea, I see that there are
many, many, to choose from.
The butt plates from my stash of parts didn't
match up too good.
I think this will be a 'swapmeet special' when it's done.
Keep us posted.

That is precisely what will make it seem so 'authentic'. Mine's going to be parts bin special, too. When my wife first saw the 30-11 stock, she said it looked like "...a horrible mistake.."
It's still evolving.

Gaspipe, thought you might be interested to know, I just found out that the Adams & Bennett barrels which are sold by Midway, are made by ER Shaw. I am about to start a Mauser project also, but I think I will wait to find a good deal on a Shilen or Douglas barrel.......................

I dunno, but in any event Shaw will send ya a long chambered threaded barrel in the diameter/contour I want (around 1.180" dia) and the A&B is gonna be a f54 short chambered threaded barrel or a f99 blank for about the same price, shaw being a little bit higher. This means with the A&B the contour will be wrong (for me), I will need to cut threads on the lathe (not something I'm prepared to do yet), and I'll have to get a chamber reamer to headspace.
I'll only need a reamer with the Shaw after I screw up and cut the shoulder too much. :)
edit here----> A high quality barrel - yeah I'm gonna save up for one of them too, but I want to shoot the gun while I'm saving hence the more affordable barrel to start with.

Slowly he turned.....
Ok WTC and the job put things on hold for a while, but here is the VZ24 trigger guard chopped up w/new sides added and welded back together to fit the stock - sort of. Amazing what ya can do with a file and some time.....
Looks like the wrench pics are gone, if you wanna see 'em email me and I'll send ya a copy.
