Gracias. I have already been following your post. Please use the American spelling of 'favorites', instead of the English spelling. After all, you and I are both in the Americas.

Best Regards,
Slo cat

BTW, an Argentine lady won a silver medal in free pistol at the World Masters Games in 2009. Her name is Eva Szabo. Do you know her?

The engraver emailed a photo of my engraved DSA receiver:



I should be getting it back in about a week and I will then post more photos.

My T-48 handguard arrived. It looks Great!

Best Regards,
Slo cat

The engraving looks very nice.

Glad you were able to find some nice handguards. Would be terrible to have to use something that some hayseed whittled out on his front porch!

Here are some photos of the hard to get FAL Venezuelan parts. I feel fortunate in that I got these, with the kind help of our brothers on the FAL Files. The last part needed is a type B walnut buttstock, which is on the way.



Close up of the engraving, the moses Vene flash hider and the Vene diopter rear sight.



Here is the vendor contact info for the firm that did the engraving. The art work for this is already set up, so if you wish to get this same engraving on your FAL receiver, you will save on the artwork cost.

Firearm Engraving
www.FirearmEngraving.com
913-754-6574

Here is what they charge and how the charge is segregated:

PRICE FOR ENGRAVING OF VENEZUELAN CREST AND TEXT:
$35.00 per engraving location
$25.00 FFL paperwork fee
$19.95 S&H
TOTAL: $79.95 for ONE location

PRICE FOR NEW ARTWORK:

A $25.00 additional fee for artwork preparation (per logo if applicable)
- NEW TOTAL OF $109.95 for ONE location

These folks are very responsive to your inquiries and their pricing beats all the competition that I know of. They are located in Kansas.

EDITED: I forgot to say that Firearm Engraving wrote me that if you mention my name, they will give you a discount.

Best Regards,
Slo cat

Slo, Thanks for posting the info on the engraving, real hard to find a company that will do the FFL for the reciever do the engraving work and at such very reasonable prices. Maybe a group reciever engraving? Like all of the same per group, like Ejercito Argentino engravings for argies and so on? Do the parts look good, cant really make them out over the drool.

4 brigada,

A good way to find an original, full color national crest is to do a Google search. Here is what I found for Argentina:



Compare this to the photos in Steven's book to see what lettering is included with the crest. In this case, EJERCITO ARGENTINO is printed in a curve around the bottom of the crest (Fig 181). Take a close-up photo of this.

Then send both of these to the vendor and they can start on the artwork.

Best Regards,
Slo cat

Or maybe Evita singing, No llores por me, Argentina!

Working on the unique Vennie heavy barrel variant. Its not as easy at it used to be finding the unique and rare parts. They are either all gone, or no one is willing to part with them!
