Smile G1 finally complete! Thanks BamaFal

BamaFal was kind enough to sell me a couple of beautiful NOS FN G1 mags to complete my new G1 rifle. Looks great!

Still looking for a proper German scope and mount but the Argentine/Z24 combo should get me by until then.

Great job! I like it. Did you built it with current DSA receiver? What kind of finish did you use?

Sorry for the confusion, but I did not build this myself. It was built by a fellow board member, though, but didn't come with any mags. The builder did a nice job, though.

The only thing I've done is replaced the wood carry handle with the proper plastic type, blacked out some white lettering on the DSA receiver, and found a suitable sling and now mags.

Yeah it looks long in that photo but it's normal length.
