Yeah i'm still collecting for an L1A1 Aussie also..... almost done.....almost !
The Market Place (for sale stuff) here is a good source, dozens of threads, and you can also post a WTB (want to buy).

Other than that the usual internet search, slim pickins right now.

Due to the ban uppers were cut or torched before allowed into USA, and no one is making new inch receivers. Yes you are now at the mercy of
supply and demand on that ! Many common wealth rifles had the barrels CUT. There is or was a source for L1A1 replacement barrels, don't know
if its still producing, but after a long hard search, you may find an original that has only been shortened an inch.

good luck !

Welcome to Falfiles.

Recommend posting WTB ad in the Marketplace. A lot of the members are hoarders and may have parts you’re looking for. GB is a also a good source for parts. Also, you may want to Arizona Response Systems online for kits and parts.

Inch pattern top covers?

Got it guys, thanks to those who responded both for their patience and help in getting the top cover. Apparently I'm not capable of using email here just yet, so PM's only. Kinda strange since other forums let you use email from the start. I'll post pics as soon as it comes back home.



Who has inch pattern top covers? I found a shop in the UK with one but they can't export.

Damn things seem rare as hens teeth...
