Is there a correct timing for an Imbel combo devise?

Thanks!

Yes there is.
The flats should be at 3 & 9 o'clock & the little cut for the bayonet catch should be at 6.

Is the device on the muzzle brake built by you ?

A 3/8" drive goes right up the snout of combo devices. No need for special tools except to vice the barrel. We use phenolic blocks in the vice. Wood can work fine. Just need to make sure it's stable and gripped real good! Hand timing should be about 1-2 hours short of 6 O' clock. Takes around 50-60 ft lbs usually. YMMV.

If you need to make adjustments then either shim, or grind the combo device, not the muzzle. A *gasp* dremel with the cylindrical grinding stone gently applied will get the pesky little inside shoulder to the correct length/depth for good timing.

Yeah,..I cobbled it together one day. I made the barrel vise earlier,.. then made some inserts that would fit the front end of the barrel for messin' with flash suppressors and stuff,...

It does not matter which set of holes are where.

As long as you don't mind an upside-down byonet, then no.:rofl:

Who cares.

I went to the Imperial War Museum in London and there are 2 or 3 Metric FALs on display. I don't what counrty they came out of but none of them had the combo device time prefectly.

It wil work just as well up side down as right way round. The bayonet will stick just a good either way also.

But that being said. The only combo device on my FALs that is not timed right is on my R1. Go figure!
