Jugrunner those are LR cartouches .It is a Belgian acceptance mark.You see it on FN 49 s as well. Those stocks are likely late model BGS G1 stocks .That is where my stock like that came from. Thanks EX1

Well I'll do the best I can, but I'm no ex-pert...
I think the Wood the FINNS used is an ARCTIC BIRCH which has some really neat flame in it.. Then I think in the original finish they used Pine Tar or something like that and that may have added to the color?...

The rifle pictured has some pretty wild figure and flame in it, I really like how it looks..

L1A1 wood

Sudden Death, Albeit the few nicks, Did you refinish the wood on Your L1a1, Or just clean it up? Looks really nice the way you have it now. Especially up against that table, I agree with Jeffery.
Cheers, Lee.

Time to break out the family photo:



And the BM wood (butt and PG):



FAL to do list for 2010:
1. G1 kit, using a spectacular original refinished tiger striped G1 buttstock. I am waiting for a DSA G1 receiver, due maybe in Spring, 2010.
2. Meeper conversion to 7.62x25 using a Williams FAL receiver.
3. Brit Inch build using an Entréprise Brit. Inch receiver and refinished original wood furniture.

Best Regards,
Slo cat

Finally got some time and put Blue Monster's work on my FAL. I sent him the NOS tiger-striped handguards and NOS butt and he carved a PG and finished all to match. A true master craftsman as you can see. Not intended to be a true period correct FAL mind you as I am still putting that kit together but just wanted to display the awesome skills of Blue (and the early AFN/OIP as well.)

LOL! Hate to say this, but by the time someone has seen my office/gun room, they already know I'm kind of a gun/ militaria collecting fool! Between the WWII collection, and the three gun safes, there's really no hiding it.

The best I have used is brand Chestnut Ridge Supply- Dark Walnut Military stock stain (With a hint of red)

L1A2 has this now. The wood was given a once over but the kit was not refinished. On a FAC (coonan) type 1. Long story but Buddie did me right on this one after a misstep on a hand pick back in the day. Came with a Cr new barrel as well. $89 for the kit, $200 for the receiver and another $60 for the compliance parts. Those were the days.

Jerry, the sling on that G1 kinda looks like the mysterious orgin slings that Tapco had back in the day. I got a couple of those, stunk up the house. To add insult, my GSD got in the closet and pissed on them.

Besides, that is one nice looking weapon!

They look like Type Bs [kind of] converted to a Type C. A practice often seen to prevent cracking before the ready availability of synthetics. The Turks were the most common practitioners of this technique.

Hello Gobbler Those are Argentine made type C stocks .The profile is the give away. They also made Falo stocks with the same contour. The stocks in your pic will likely have a plastic insert where the recoil tube goes I have only seen this in the Argy type Cs. The Argy ferrule is also slightly different with larger holes. These type stocks are usually seen on the Argy plain muzzle Fals.Thanks EX1
