Hi, I have a Century FAL. I am trying to ID the barrel. I have looked all over it and the only marking I can find is a letter ''w'' over the chamber on top of the barrel. Did Century use US made barrels?:confused:
Thanks RICH

Sounds like a very early Aussie. Is there also a Lithgow crest on the chamber near the flats?

I see no crest, but the lower receiver is Aussie.
