I'm sure this has been discussed in the past, but I just purchased GP's video and was glued to it. It was like watching Norm Abrams on "New Yankee Workshop" except that instead of building a replica antique table, he built a replica assault rifle. I liked the little comments about gun issues too. My wife even came over and started watching it with me.
Hopefully this winter I'll get to apply this newfound knowledge to my G-1 project.
So GP, if you're out there... Thanks for teaching me the proper way to build a FAL, and thanks for making it entertaining too. You are a gentleman and a scholar!

Sons of Liberty,
First of all, nice login name. I have just ordered gunplumbers video as well, and am waiting with sweaty palms for it. I have the AGI video, but judging from what i have read from GP on this site, his will be many times better. Does he cover Taking off the gas block, selecting bareling washers and barrel timing? these are things the other video lacks.

He will show you the parts and how they work. How to build it in the shop and howto in the garage. Definite THUMBS UP.
If only the video quality was better. :D

johnny,... I can tell you how to take off a gas block,.. use an appropriately sized pin punch to remove the pin,.. hold the barrel muzzle down on a block of wood and bang hell out of the gas block where the gas tube screws in with a plastic faced hammer. As of yet, I can't tell you how to put it back on, however,.. lol,... it's been my experience that most things are much easier to take apart than to put back together.

Just remember to pack a lunch. It is a long informative video. I like the ending where hotshot says "Well, looks like this one is good to go". And the part where they are driving in the truck to the desert shooting locale.

The video may not be technically perfect but it was eminently viewable. The WECSOG-like production methods seem appropriate for the workbench. Criticisms from video technophiles are lost to me, as the content had me totally absorbed. Now need a vcr for the work area too!

Sounds like I need to buy one of those tv/vcr's for the shop. Or should I spend the money finishing one of my Kits?
