You have one very nice rifle there, I would not change a thing, just shoot and enjoy it..Good Luck

There aren't nearly enough people posting pics here. I'll add these.

Aussie (Singapore Police Contract) 1963 L1A1 + Smellie

*****See http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showp...01&postcount=1 for kit pre build ****

Sorry for the excess of photos!

Finally got my Aussie L1A1 'SLR' or 'Gat' built on a DSA Australian pattern cut receiver. I've kept all the US made compliance parts pretty much internal (gas piston, H/T/S, receiver, mag followers, mag floor plates. Wood is SLAZ 63 Handguards, MA 83 pistol grip, MA 69 N buttstock, and the Type 2 wood carry handle, rotating - is a hacked Brit wood handle that I shaped and stained to look right.

I shipped it of to gunplumber and had him manganese phosphate parkerize it first, and then apply Metacol III Classic patina to make it look like aged park, and I couldn't be happier. It's almost a dead nuts on match to the original finish on my NOS matching bayonet, and matches perfectly with the original parked components I sent with the kit.

I'll undoubtedly add more pics later on.

Sorry I felt the need to "pollute" the SLR pics with those of it's predecessor, the Lithgow NoIMkIII* SMLE Lee Enfield or "Smellie" (all matching, non-import marked) - actually...I'm not sorry at all!

Thanks! Pretty damn chuffed by her. She shoots brilliantly. Have only had the one outing to a range with 50 and 100yd targets. I'm still working on getting the 200m zero. Gotta love mixing metric and imperial (measurements for zeroing)......

The wood came out fantastic on your SLR! I see the PG is NOS, but what did you do to clean up the rest?

Buttstock was also NOS. Bought from a member here actually who had a bunch of them. Dark part on the stock came up when I was hand running BLO. Handguards were also very lightly used and almost NOS bought off GB from the same gent I bought the kit and receiver from. The handguards have a couple of compression marks but thats it.

Matell,
Very nice rifles, and some great pics as well.
Thanks for sharing your collection and knowledge with us. I am new to FAL's, but certainly not new to guns. I have collected various milsurps over the years, I really like my own Litgow No.1 MK.3, now I just need an FAL to go with it.

Yes that's true. It happened with M1A's, AR's, Garands, and AK's.
I have been thinning down the heard locally in Indy. So now I have some spare cash to get an FAL.
I came here to learn about them before plunking down the cash.

Matilda at her best

Here's my contribution.

Well, I'm embarrassed to say that I can't seem to get the pictures to show up. the upload button mentioned in the FAQ isn't on the posting page - even the advanced page. Seems I do not have attachment privileges.

Sorry guys, no pix of my rifle here today

I'd like to introduce you to Matilda. She started life as a CAI sporter.

*Furniture is by Silver Crescent. Excellent wood! Fast service too, in the face of an infrastructure disaster at their factory. Kudos to them!

* Rail is a Light Tactical Rail by B & T enterprises. I got one of the last they made for a long time.

* Flash hider threading and replacement by WAR rifles.

Here's a video of me shooting this rifle....



.....at a recent Club Action Shoot. Not a perfect run, but good enough to place second. The only thing I dislike about L1A1s is the lack of a Bolt Hold Open....

You can put the pin back in and make the hold open function. Simply copy a metric for the correct length pin.

If the BHO already has the empty hole (as seems to be true with a lot of Lithgow BHOs), you can convert them with an appropriate length roll pin.

Yes. Sighted it in at 100 yds, erring on the high side of POA. About 3" groups, and ability to hit a 3" polymer bobble. Ammo was SA surplus. Going to try the ZQI stuff this weekend.

Bayonet also arrived. (Photo thread needs a photo, I suppose)

My guess is you could shrink those groups once you "settle down" with the weapon after firing it a few times, and try some different ammo.

Please keep us updated. With more pics, of course

Awesome rifle.. If you're not already.. Keep the rest tight up against the magwell and your groups will tighten up.

Oh, neat! I take it these were some of the semi-finished parts that came with the "housecleaning" import from Lithgow in the early 90s?

New Zealand contract AD64 Lithgow

Afternoon all,

Thought I would share the latest rebuild out of my workshop, its yet another NZ contract Lithgow AD64, deactivated again (deactivated 20 years ago), but at least it's now a pretty deac!

It came to me as a box of bits, so I had a rummage about in my spares box, repainted her and fitted a set of restored woodwork...

Happy with the result.

Unfortunately not, it would be a prohibited weapon if re-activated here in the UK, I do have two live L1A1's though, Lithgow and Enfield, rebuilt to straight pull configuration, but with original Receivers

Good morning from Finland,

bought my one and only FAL/L1A1-family rifle back in 2001 when a shipment of a few hundred Lithgow-built rifles popped in to the local civilian gun market. The rifles were rated by the seller from fair to excellent condition which affected pricing of an individual rifle, mine was rated "good", something in between fair and excellent. I paid for this rifle with an inch pattern 20 round magazine less than US$200, the excellent ones would have been about US$250-300. Note: this is the inflation adjusted value of the money I spent in 2001...

Contrary to my previous post the rifle is made in 1968 (not 1967) and to the best of my knowledge (i.e. serial number AD6809506) it was shipped to Singapore, alas it doesn't have any Singaporean markings I've seen on for example Singaporean police force issued weapons.

The rifle looks like it has been carried along quite a lot in a drill field, plus it has got the obligatory armory-induced dings and dents, but the bore is impeccable and its internal parts fit to each other almost like components on a hand made Swiss pocket watch. The trigger breaks at about 1,5 kilos (3.3 lbs) and after slight and careful polishing doesn't have any noticeable creep.

The rifle is a decent shot, 10 shot groups hang around 2,5-3 MOA depending on the batch of NATO surplus ammo.

Here it is in the early morning sunlight. The rifle is, excluding touch of an enhancement on the trigger group, unmodified and the furniture is all original, I do though occasionally apply some gun stock oil and wax for protection against harsh Finnish elements.



...and with the leisure SUIT on...



Markings...





Proofed for sale in C.I.P. countries by Birmingham Proof House





Seemingly not a "frankenfal"...

...missed one marking on the barrel. Don't really know how to read this though... looks like there's an inverted number seven(*) on the left side.




(*) Correcting myself, this date code deciphers as: ZC 4, April 1997



Please excuse my ongoing monologue, I don't know if this was common knowledge but to me this is all new and exiting At the time I bought this rifle there wasn't so much info readily available online like it is today, although one has to be a little suspicious and cross check, good example is BNP stamp of which there are even today people with 100% certainty it stands for "British Nitro Proof"...

TVC, superb rifle, the ex Singapore rifles were on average very well looked after L1A1's.

I have a 1971 (ex Singapore Police example) that is in similar condition, though mine is in British plastic from her days as a UK civilian shooter.

Kidnapped Dad's neutered, ban-era L1A1 in plastic furniture. Sent to Randy Kline to make the barrel evil. Just installed the wood furniture. Missing a sling swivel, so it's got no buttplate in place, but it's good enough to present on Christmas.

And, a curse on whoever designed the return spring nut contraption. I almost hit my cleaning lady with it as it flew across the room, and I ruined my favorite shorts, which are now covered in black grease.




And, I shamelessly used it to bolster my Commonwealth stash picture:

PNG contract

I have been getting back into FALs as of late, digging through my old kits and discovered two PNG contract kits, unique flash hiders and shorter buttstocks included. The barrels are demilled and I was hoping that there are still Aussi barrels around. I think I used to have 3 kits as I found a third PNG flash hider. May have built one of my old commanding officers an L1A1 and didn't utilize the fh in the build. My squadron always gave the retiring CO a rifle or 1911 as a thank you gift. Anyone out there have an Aussi barrel or two they could part with? Also just found a wood and pressed steel folding bipod for the heavy barreled L1A1. L2A1? So what are the chances of finding a HB gas block or complete barrel to fit this folding bipod to for a hb builde? Anyone have one they are looking to sell? Pictures are on the way.

Indian barrels

I forgot to ask in my last post and I do not presently have a new receiver to test with...so, can an Indian barrel be used to on a British/Inch receiver? I found 3 Indian barrels in my Fal stash and was hoping to put them to use on a build. I think these came from FAC when they closed out. Any thoughts on this?

What's with the cut-down flash hider? Not allowed?
