View Full Version : FAL lower receiver I.D.

July 07, 2008, 21:01
A few years ago I purchased a FAL parts kit from a large FAL parts supplier as being an Inch kit with a Australian lower and a British front end. A fellow emailed me that it was not an Australian lower. Since I decided not to build this kit, I put it on GB. All the parts are INCH with the kit, the stock is wood, the pistol grip is wood, not G1 as I own one, looks like Australian like I have. The receiver is marked with a large S and R at the selector and has BX 1498 behind the takedown lever. If you have an idea please post, I do not want to misrepresent anything I sell. Thanks!

It sounds like you may have an Indian lower. Does the lower have scallops or, wings next to the bottom tang with corresponding cuts on the buttstock? If so, it's a L1A1. Or, is it flat acros the back and the BS uses a stock ferrule? That would be the Indian 1A.

Here is some more usefull info:
