My interpretation of an Israeli 'Bush' FAL. Light barrel H/G, H/B buttstock with shoulder plate, 18" barrel.

Paco: Not much wood, but some. The leftmost two have wooden forearms.

Clicking on the links will take you to much bigger versions.
Above is some photos of a Type A stock I got for my BGS from Flypaper, which I finished with Boiled linseed oil, my favorite finish. I wish i could convey with simple pictures the depth and movement in the wood, it's the prettyest stock I have ever held. Thanks, Fly!

Thumbs up RNLAF - Dutch Models

I was in the USAF from 1982-1986 and assigned to the 32nd. TFS at Camp New Amsterdam, NL (Soesterberg AB, Nederland) the whole time I was in. Back in those days the RNLAF Security Forces were issued the FN FAL, and it was the version with wood furniture.

Is there in existence a source of information on this specific Dutch model? This is what I look to either build or buy if I cannot get the parts easily. Any and all assistance will be appreciated. THANKS / BEDANKT !!!
