Greetings. Several years ago, I purchased several new in wrap L1A1 mag. bodies from Tapco when they were still selling FAL parts somewhat. From what i've read, FAL metric followers and springs work in the L1A1 bodies. Push comes to shove, I can even fabricate the inner floorplate locking plates (unsure of proper terminology), which i've found to be non-existent. My question is, does anyone know who currently has L1A1 floorplates available and for sale? I have Googled and see none available. I'm not picky as to country of manufacture, or condition, as long as can be made serviceable. I hate seeing the shells sitting on my shelf being useless....thanks, John.:confused:

I have a base plate and follower from a mag I blew up years ago. Send me your info by e mail and I will ship. It is from an inch mag but will probably fit yours. Both very good.

Ernst Armory did have the locking plates, but no base plates (which is usually the other way around). Interestingly, a little while back I came across some Inch Mags with locking plates fab'd from Bren locking plates.

I'm looking at fab'ing some base plates, but it may be sometime before I can get that project rolling. So, if you do come across a source of base plates, please let me know.

Ernst has the lock tabs, NOS they were quite a pleasure to deal with and he even called me back at like 8 at night to confirm the order when there was a problem with my debit card!

Been offline working the Memorial Day weekend. Sorry for slow replies. I checked Earnest Armory. They show them for sale, but when you click on item, it is shown as out of stock. 4markk, thanks for the response. If you do start making up a batch, i'd be in for several. If I see any become available, I will post on Falfiles.:)
