Sold to Malaya, edit: one note though may or may not find of import,list says that 50% were sold with short butts,so it can be deduced that this was due to the smaller stature of Asian folks. Just an option for the restoration.

Weapon history

Mr. Skennerton's SLR book is very scarce. I did just purchase the SAIS No. 12 book on L1 and C1 FAL Rifles parts and diagrams. But that one doesn't have the details of the SLR volume. Could someone please look up serial AD6219940 and help me learn where my L1A1 started it's journey . Thank you. I'll keep watching for a copy of "SLR".

You have an extra digit in there but I am betting on New Zealand.

It was sold to Malaya (50% with Short butts) as per the book "S.L.R. Australia's F.N. F.A.L.".
