I talk to the owner once in a while...he's doing other things right now, FALs are on hiatus.

Does he still have a website? At one time he had one and a bunch of fals on there. I can't seem to find it now, but if they are on the hiatus with fals that would explain it.

His website is gone. I called last week inquiring about FAL barrels, left a message and still haven't gotten a response. Guess they are too busy doing other stuff.

What would these two slings be worth?
Top: Excellent condition. Has 2 different troopers names and rack number inside.
Bottom: Good condition less color.

Also, remember that there were [plenty of C1A1s that still had their two slot handguards. AND, there were even a few out there with THREE slot handguards. I have no freaking clue where they came from.

Never did figure out why they went plastic buckles, and Velcro on the web belt stuff. That was the stupidest idea,.. they shifted and slid all around.
At least with hooks, you knew where they were because they never moved.
