View Full Version : Maine FAL Smith ?

July 01, 2007, 14:38
Does anyone know a smith in Maine that can headspace my FAL ? The first round I fired from the rifle separated the case! No injury but I will always check with a guage before firing in the future. I can see the bolt is not locking up and I probably need a new locking lug.
Thanks Bruce

send a PM to Crow99 and see if he will do it for you! He builds custom bolt rifles, but he has done a lot of work on any and all things gun related. He is a real perfectionist and a top notch gunsmith up in The County. But he also has more work than he wants. Where are you located? If you can not reach him or he is to busy to do it for you then let me know. I have the tools also.

I know this thread is old, but I have the tools and have done it many times...PM me if you still need a hand

He got it done by one of them "Shade tree mechanics" somewhere. Last I heard, rifle and shooter was still in one piece. :D
