Updated order information in first post.


Two PP orders will be filled this week.

To order a signed copy see the first post in this thread.


Glad you guys and gals are enjoying The FAL Primer! Do me a favor- when somebody asks a question about the FAL and SLR rifles, give them a link to this thread.

I have a stack of books ready to go. See first post for ordering information.

Looks like the FAL Files rush is over. Hopefully most people for whom the book is a must-have are now satisfied now I'll branch out to the other channels.

I just received my copy today. It's beautiful! The pictures are awesome. I've just taken a cursory look, but there's so much new stuff that has never been in print in a bound book (that I know of). Well done! This is a "must have" for any FAL aficionado!

The FAL Primer is available, I have a stack right here in hand.



Pssst....for those who have already purchased The FAL Primer- a special deal.

Lithgow's Small Arms Factory and its People, 1950-1990 by Griffiths. 355 pages. An incredible resource on the Lithgow factory history, petty politics, production, etc. Awesome little tidbits of L1A1 history you won't find anywhere else.



Out of print. I just got an extra copy as part of package deal. If you bought a book first "I'll take it gets it" $65 shipped CONUS ex-works, media uninsured. Offer good until 12:01am Friday 29 June.

More copies of The FAL Primer available!

This tome answers many of the questions I see posted every day. I wonder, how many people have passed up rare parts because they couldn't ID them, or over-payed for more common parts?

Dunno about you, but every reference volume I've invested in has paid for itself.

Hi Chuck,
I would like to order another copy of your book. This one will go to the library of the Argentine Association of Arms Collectors. I'll pay via personal check.

Amazing book. Certainly the most interesting book on my coffee table bar none. So well done and informative. You may think you know FALs, and many of you do, but there is something in this book to amuse every "I know it all" guy out there. Get out your wallet and support the people that worked so hard on this project.
Just my 2 cents

Your shipped Monday, USPS Media.

Wheat, I am so pleased that you find such value in The FAL Primer. Thanks for the review.

Yes, The FAL Primer is currently available. After many problems with the printing company they finally caught up and I have a stack here. Problem is, I took a "real" job that was too good to pass up, but have been working 12-16 hours/day so haven't had time to promote the book or get it on Amazon. But when I run out I'll order more, I can at least keep up with the demand here on the Files.

Got my copy. Quite the piece of work!

I don't know why but I was expecting a paperback. Pleasantly shocked when I got a heavy package with a sweet hardback book in it.

We all owe you for the amount of work you put into this book.

Congrats on a job well done.
