It seems as though he has read up a bit on the Files.

I thought so too. Looked like he had a set of Court's timing rods and a Ratas wrench.

He has a full set of the tools I sell: receiver wrench, barrel vise and timing tool. (For the record ... Court suggested that I go ahead and make timing tools after he decided to stop making his).

I saw the beginning of this video months ago. I admit that I tried to deduce who it was by looking through my spreadsheet of tool sales, but it was inconclusive.

I am surprised at how little info is out there on YouTube on how to build FALs ... and even the FAL in general. Must be tens if not hundreds on how to snap together an AR lower. And they are easy.

Cool! I didn't know you were making the timing rods now Ratas, Glad there is still a source for them since I tend to misplace things sometimes.

He is a member although it appears he hasn't been here in a bit:

He is here and he is over at AKFiles under a different name.. Flandres I think?

He has a number of pretty good build videos of all firearms types, a lot of NFA stuff as well. I believe he is a professional builder in CA..

Good to see the young with interests in the Fal.

He has been discussed before and has a great reputation for building rifles, but the Japanese Anime costumes are a bit hard to absorb. The trolling comments in his vids are "pretty" entertaining.
