Got mine today, as expected a quality, comprehensive piece of work. I wish I had it when I started collecting FALs.

Thank you!

Pay Pal sent 5/5/18

Just trying to verify that you received my PayPal payment on May 5th--- I checked my PP account and noticed you did not accept, I believe I had the earlier email address and canceled that payment of May 5th. Used exoticimportsREMOVEthisSPAMfilter@hotmail.com and the payment went through today. Just want a copy of the book, signatures not necessary.

The only Paypal payment I received on 05 May was from Pourmeanother. The most recent payment was 08 May from initials are "BP" so if your initials are not BP then I did not receive payment.

I hope you did not make a payment to "exoticimportsREMOVEthisSPAMfilter@hotmail.com" because that's not my address- note the "REMOVEthisSPAMfilter" which, so far, everyone has figured out to do so.

Thanks Mark. It isn't perfect, but I find myself referring to it constantly! And, I think it makes a great read. But then again I've read Steven's book cover to cover probably five times.

Invoices have been sent to those who recently expressed interest.

still not correct email

I have copied your email address as stated in you posts which includes the exotic imports and both have failed to be accepted by you site. I have canceled both transactions that I sent today and on May 5th. Now before I try to send a paypal payment is the correct email address:
REMOVEthisSPAMfilter@hotmail.com

That is NOT the correct email address. That stuff is what you are supposed to REMOVE. I will send you a PM with the correct paypal address.

I got my copy at the creek and finally got time to crack it open last night and it is certainly worth owning. Very detailed and informative and a great reference book on the FAL's which I have much to learn about so this will be invaluable. Had a ball at the creek with Nog and Kevin at the tables and hopefully Kevin will join us again. Now back to reading to see if I can find my guns in there somewhere lol

Yeah- me too! I suggested somebody do it, and nobody would, so I did. Now I'm hoping the niche experts jump on and do one just on the G1, just on the Argies, etc.

Kevin and I have another one coming- this time joined by Andy The Aussie as third author (The Three FALmigos)- but we're not talking. Don't even ask.

The classic reference is Blake Stevens' "The FAL Rifle" Collector's Grade Publications, 1993. You can get it from Gunthings.com, select "books" and scroll down. It is a valuable resource, though dated and doesn't include any of the US-made parts/ rifles. Nor does it have a photo of Gunplumber, as does The FAL Primer.

WOW great job guys, well researched.
Great photos, even had the Good the Bad and the Ugly.
T. mark from ARS [good guy, in my opinion]
Col. Studler [bad guy , in my opinion]
CAI [the ugly].

And now I understand strange Argy markings.

Will watch for next book.
Thanks

Thanks Graham, glad you appreciate the book.


All invoices / payment info sent to those who requested it. A good dozen members who said they wanted the book haven't sent payment.


I'm out of books for the last week. There are six people who have paid and are awaiting books, yours will go out as soon as I receive the next batch. The printer notified me a week ago there was a delay, they finally shipped 5/18 so I should have them "soon." There is another batch of books behind that, so go ahead and post here you want one and I'll PM you payment instructions.

The second batch of books headed for New Zealand ship by 08 June so if you're AUS or NZ or Cook Islands, be prepared!

I have yet to receive the shipment of books from the printer though they reportedly shipped on 5/18. I have to leave town for a week. Assuming books are here upon my return I'll ship first week of June. My apologies to those who have paid and patiently waited.
