View Full Version : Who has the best deal on the best quality Imbel kits?
Who has the best current deal on complete Imbel FAL kits (quality and price)? I just saw that the Dealer Warehouse has some more kits in stock and Enterprise has kits advertized as well. I am only interested in kits with original barrels, no US barrels. Any help would be appreciated as I am considering purchasing one. Thanks in advance.
I am sorry, I meant Imbel Kits, not Argie ones.

Meant to add that I knew Dealer Warehouse and Entreprise have imbel (Brazilian), but didn't see Argie.
Was that in SGN or somewhere else?

Don't hold your breath on this. Argies have never been common, and unless someone has dug up a secret stash, I doubt you'll see any kits around unless there's a member here who is giving one up :D
Just looked at Dealers Warehouse site.
It seems they are out.

I think I read that the DW kits weren't Argy anyway, they had been "misidentified".
My Bad, I got confused and meant Imbel kits. Who has the best price on Imbel kits?
Entreprise has Imbel kits for $250

I've been off the board for several year's, have built, R1, G1, Izzy HB, Imbel's etc. but nothing lately. You've suggested Enterprise for an IMBEL kit for $250. Is that as good as it gets. What's in a kit now days. And where do you get the rest of the stuff today?
most kits still include the same stuff they did years ago. the only variable is barrel, read the fine print, some kits include us made barrels, or no barrel.
receivers are some times difficult to get, and always very expensive.
there is plenty of discussion about century and enterprise, but i wont buy one.
dsa seems to ration receivers to chumps like me.
a few imbels are still around, but they are hard to find, and did i mention expensive?
compliance parts are no problem most of the time.
and, in answer to your question, yes, that is about as good as it gets.
at least we saw the good old days.

Thanks Wheat, So the kits have barrel problems. Looked in my stash and found two receivers and two barrels, one new G1 and a beat up R1. The receivers are from the guy in Minnesota. He made rack grade receivers for cheap. where would you place them in your scale above or below Century or Enterprise. I know the DSA are usually first rate, but when I was building them I couldn't afford them. Is there a good source for locking shoulders and what's a reasonable price today?

Our kits are $249 + shipping right now, but we are planning on raising the price pretty soon. Actually, I think we were supposed to have already raised the price, but my boss forgot to change our website.
Anyway, our kits come with all the original Imbel parts and barrel, but we do not include the locking shoulder. This is because not only will it most likely not be the right size, but also because some of our customers in the past had no concept of head spacing, and tried assembling their kit by just pounding the shoulder in and wondering why their rifle wouldn't work right.
How do I type in your website (enterprise)? All I keep getting is another search engine.

Have you tried Gunbroker, these always a couple of kits on there.

Here's the link, I got one a few mnths. back, good kit.
Although, I would prefer getting the LS, they're good for builds or trades.

Locking shoulders run $24 to $34 depending on your source. $34 gets you one right now, $24 dollars gets you one sometimes now, sometimes after a short wait.
