Hello, Gents...
Took my L1A1 to the range yesterday, shot 147 gr S&B through it. Functioned fine. Pics to come. DSA L1A1 receiver on a Lithgow lower. Requisite # of 922r parts. Had been waiting a long time for its debut... Thanks to L/FN, found a nice wood set...
The bold hold open did not have the pin to hold the bolt open on the last shot; on one website, I see that this pin was not always present or used.
will closing on the last shot wear the chamber/bolt face? i.e. should I get this pin or leave as is? Thoughts. I've been lurking awhile and appreciate all the info shared between us. There is real expertise here.
Cheers,

Tom

To BHO or not BHO, that is the question?

Pretty much a personal preference thing. The Brits didn't like the feature and disabled it. Lessened the chance of foreign material entering the action while the bolt/carrier is locked back, I believe. Most metric countries left it in working order.

My L1A1/Imbel came with the BHO working and I like it that way. For my uses there isn't any reason not to have this feature.

If it were my rifle, I'd restore the BHO. :)

I am in agreement with MAINER. I like the BHO (not The Anointed One).
