Smile ends soon WTA FN Belgian Army M3 para part set: stock, cover, grip.. PART1 1$ start

Hi folks, PART1
I spotted a nice FAL for my collection and i could use some cash to buy it.
So, I'm cleaning out my partscollection to raise funds.

These parts come of an original FN M3 para FAL. It had typical mixed colors.

Terms and conditions.
The auction starts now. Startingbid is 1$ on each item, minimum 2$ increments plz on the small items. No need for jokers...
The auction stops on wednesday evening july 18th at 19.00Hr Washington DC time (to avoid problems) The GB 15 minutes rule is applied on each individual item.

The final price is plus actual S&H. I pay the S&H if Belgium wins the soccer World series
That will be registered shipping and the items will be packed in bubblefoil+box to protect it.
Check my feedback or do an inquiry if you don't feel comfy to deal with a Belgian paratrooper. Or, just ask the real FAL guys.
Paypal and combined shipping is prefered (if you take of the fees).
More pics on simple request. No hidden surprises, just great FN paco stuff as always... No happy, money back. No BS on my side, only happy faces on the other side
More auctions in the next day's...
How to bid? Just mention the auction number and you bid.
I'll make an update regulary to make it easy.



Here we go:
Auction#1 Grey M3 ABL FN para stock+lock+ carryhandle assy
Fully functional, but used condition!

These items on the picture above only! in auction1


Not yet cleaned





Auction 2 FN M3 Topcover assy with springs

Fully functional, but used condition!





Auction#3 M3 pistolgrip+grey trigger guard+ hidumidium nut
Typical for the M3 is the Serial (1388) on the pistolgrip




For a quick ID, the armorers had soldiers numbers in the grips



Auction# price name
1 parastock… 225 AuxPower
2 para cover 250 Lazylegs
3 pistolgrip+hidu nut… 40 AuxPower

I'll hit $150 on the #1 auction, you donate the carry handle to a just cause. Have the perfect resting place for some stock tubes though.....perfect patina as well.

The time reading sucks. I got Belgian Time, my falfiles give an other timezone and DC has it own timezone.

So, unless nobody complains, i keep the next thing for being the right ones...

#1 400 Auxpower (confirm this timeframe)
#2 260 raexcct2
#3 40 Auxpower

If somebody feels no ok, please contact me asap.
I wait till tonight before i contact all folks.

Paco, honestly believe "Orion the Hunter" won #1
auction. My bid at 18:15 was for "$400" with no auction
#. Realized it and posted a bid "#1 $400" but it posted
at 18:31 which I believe was too late.

Just checked my post and it appears that I posted after the auction ended. I posted at 17:27 Utah (Mountainn time) which is 19:27 Washington, DC time. I goofed.

Lazylegs0311 should be the winner of the # 2 para top cover.

For Lazylegs0311 I have a M3 para top cover that I bought from Paco years ago but it was nose cut. If you're interested I would like to swap my nose cut para top for the intact para nose top cover.

Congratulations on the win.

I had to leave town a few days and SO glad someone got the stuff who REALLY wanted it. I had a non-FAL moment and bought another SCAR (price was right) while on the trip; so as it turns out LAST thing I need is another project to disappear money at the moment. Congrats all, the DuPont stuff hard to come by and always was. Cool if you can find the right bits. The hunt is half the enjoyment...
