My Rhoadie kit

Did get a type 1 upper from DSA but waiting on a friends tools to put it together.
RA numbers match bolt carrier and lower
SA numbers match as well plus the barrel. Pratoria proof marks as well.

It's an R1 complete with South African markings. Perhaps it was made before the embargo. Or it found it's way across the border by other means. Why there are no paint remnants other than on the dust cover and forearm, I don't know. It's clearly engraved with an RA number. What I like about it is that it clearly has the SA or "Type 1.5" lightening cuts

It's possible it's numbers all match. The RA numbers (below) are the same. The "M. Jager" shown in the above photo was engraved to meet some requirement of the law after the rifle was surplussed off. I can't find my reference notes and I don't recall the details



You can see the ladder for the grenade sight has been broken off

This rifle has an unusual muzzle device. I think it goes with the one for sale by DSA


For it's elegance, the Austrian built StG58 is my favorite FAL. The SA built Rhodies, because of their history of war and supplied to Rhodesia in defiance of the arms embargo, I find to be the most fascinating
Anybody have pics of this? I cannot find any, but trying to share with a friend. It was a Rhodie carbine in an italian gun shop, well described here by Mistwolf
