Thanks elbo. I seem to have forgotten which picture I had posted and went the wrong direction. I swear... I've got to clean my counter before I do that again. That egg yoke is really bothering me.

Hinge pins.
Israeli, metric, ABC.
Female parts of metric and ABC appear to be identical, I had heard that ABCs' shafts were slightly larger diameter but these are the same.

Gas blocks:

You can see why the Izzy may need a longer piston tube.
Plug cuts in the front are different. Argie is standard metric. Izzy plug has symmetric lugs so the block has the same notch top and bottom. I think the Izzy plug is the only one that will go in either way.

Argentine & Israeli

Thumbs up Ok, now I know which receiver to get!

Apoligies to 'Wayne's World" I've been into quality guns for about 35 years and obviously couldn't get a StG 58 at the time, ahem But now that I can get a 'NFA sanctioned cut-replace-headspace-n-build' I'm a pretty happy camper. I chose the all matching austrian steyer version for $338 delivered, matching numbers and nra excellent from FAC aka gunsnstuff. sure hope it's what I think it is, I've heard some great things about the latest parts. Seen some anazing 'out-of-the-box' pics from forum members also. I must confess, after being a Mercedes mechanic professionally for many years, this is the Mercedes of all longarms. I've had H&K's, new preban one I'd bought and was less than impressed at the metallurgy and the fragile nature of the gas roller system. I had a breechbolck on a P-9s pistol crack on me after 300 rounds right at the roller. It was german police surplus. You can have the rest FN is the best. Why do you think Belgian Brownings sell for so much? I rest my case

There have been several questions about the diffences bewteen lowers and I have yet to find a good set of pictures to point them out so I made my own. One easy way to distinguish between lowers is by looking at the radius cut (or lack thereof) at the bottom of the recoil plate the bottom of the recoil plate on each.

Type 1 (from G1 Kit)


Type 2 (from Argentine Para Kit)


Type 3 (from ZA marked Imbel Kit)

Maybe we could use some pics of different wood furniture? Metric & Inch.
How do you know if wood handguards or buttstocks are A, B, or C?
I'd also like to know the difference between Turk, Belgian, STG, & Izzy wood stocks.

Just a suggestion.

These are British buttstocks, note the short comb that was unique to all the Brits.

Brit L1A1's were used extensively throughout the African continent, this has the Rhodie camo.

Canadian and British buttstock production were changed to prevent cracking by inserting wedges, also Canadian handguards had the same treatment.

Aussie buttstocks had the comb cut straight back except for a few which were cut up and out at the back. The length of the stock was altered at the front for the different sizes.

Israel SBL receivers

I imported SBL, which stands for “Stuchner Brothers Limited” they were made on FN Belgium forging in Israel in 1987 and 88, I contracted SBL to make type 1,2 and 3 and also afew test inch L1a1a’s, they were not type 3 re-milled,


The SBL is an after-market (not Contract) rifle. It appears they took the Type 3 and milled it to look like the Type 1. This is consistent w/ the 'SBL got forgings from FN' stories I've heard. The upper notch (at the back edge) is very interesting: SUIT cover adapted.

Pictures

Hey EDM11, Thank you for the pictures you've just educated in the gun I just brought at the Houston gun show. I"ve got a CETME coming Next friday and I took a little trading materal with me just on case. I got a #3 Imbel receiver. it's a ban one. with the funny stock. I'm not the biggest fan of the funny stock. I did pick up a parts kit and I'm going to build my next FAL. (If I can find a receiver) I found a century reciever at the gun show but I met "SLOW" here on the forum at the gun show. he gave me my first education on the FAL I had just gotten.
No I'm not new to semi-auto's(I've got an M-1 garand(school trained), Mini-14, SVT-40, a couple of SKS's Russian, and yugos. and other mis. things.
But, this is my first FAL.
But, your pictures are great, sharp and with good light.
out standing work.
Pat

How about para rear sights?
I saw some "early FN manufacture license" one for sale and wasn't sure how they differ from the rest. Primarily, I want them to be adjustable.

This is my first post on falfiles & I want to say thanks (EDMII, Shootist, elbo & SLR-5000) for such an informative breakdown (with pics) of these great rifles. I'm currently looking for one & this thread has been a big help.

Would anyone be able to post updated pictures of the 3 types of receivers?
The original pictures are from too long ago and are no longer viewable.
Thanks you all for your help.

embatp,

Thanks!

My SAR 48 HB Match is like the center one.
Does the picture represent Type 1-3, from the Top-Bottom?
If so, I guess that my receiver would be a Type II?

Thanks again.

Sincerely,
Dean
