Nice BSA. I have a matching numbers enfield. But having the original receiver I wish. One of the few things that would make me move to new zealand or one of the other countries that allow ownership of them.

Nice guns guys! I appreciate the motivation.


One of these days, the bottom one will get all put together. A mix-master of Brit parts, with a DSA receiver. I picked up a correct wood carry handle after the photo, too.



The top one is all confused, but now I've got more Aussie parts (and another L1A1 receiver) to mix it up a little less.



I really should start building and quit gathering parts...

My L1A1 SLR attempt:


I hope to have better pictures up in a few weeks. Only thing I really want done to the rifle would be to install a real flash hider (instead of the sealed fake one here).

Man I hadn't checked this thread in a while. All the guys from other countries with guns that have the original receiver, make me jealous. I'd love to have one even if it was a straight pull. Of course over here we could fix that real quick Too bad the guy from Italy with the two minty rearsenaled l1a1s didn't post a pic in here.

This thread also reminds me how much a godsend pat jones was to the Commonwealth FAL collectors.

First things first, hi from mainland Europe.

Here's my all-matching Enfield I just finished. Came with the pebble grain stock, gave a small fortune to have the wood, SUIT and the bayonet shipped here via eBay.
I know the sling, pouches and bayonet don't really match, but it was already an ordeal getting it to look like this, little things can wait.
Still looking for a carrying handle and a way to make it shoot straight (wobbly SUIT, crunchy trigger, bumped reticle tip and trying to figure out the right .308 load for her).
It's one of my favorite pieces never the less, and honestly, not many guns I had performed well out of the box (or the crate and cosmoline, in this case).

Built from new/like new parts last winter. I replaced the Tritium vial with a new one and it works well at night.


The bottom rifle is one of the US Gov'mt "barrel has to have the bayonet lug cut off kit" I'll make it into a carbine.

Very nice Rapidrob, the wood looks great. Is that carrying handle a reproduction? I have never seen a carrying handle without grooves or cuts.

That's a standard early metric carry handle..

From the COONAN GB receivers......

Well guys I built two Brit rifles today on the Coonan Brit cut receivers! Both went together like a dream!!! Here are pics of mine.......
One took a .264 LS and the other took a .2645 LS.











Here is the second which was built for a friend here.....as you can see from the pics my lil buddy is just learning the PROPER photographing requirements......I guess I haven't been such a great tutor in this area.....BUT YOU can also see at least he does have the correct furniture on his where I am slipping.....I will swap out my stock maybe today......



LaC

More to come very soon.....still awaiting on receivers to arrive!

Well I have changed the butt stock and have been cleaning up the stock and also cleaning up the HG's and PG......now applying Tung Oil and it's really looking nice.......been locked away in the shop since not much else today with this damn rain coming down........Pics to come later.....


Updated pics as of today......













Note the LS handguard.....those are not chips or dings but yet look like leopard or appaloosa spots.....I thought I was going to completely strip these down and refurbish, BUT after just a slight cleaning and then fresh coats of oil I have decided to leave it as is.....I personally REALLY LIKE these! THANKS G3isME!!!!!!

Thanks buddy! I have another set that I am going to send to Blue Monster to do some VERY special work for me, and will later install it on this rifle, and the wood on this rifle will be donned on the upcoming Britt build This one is a 64 dated rifle and the upcoming is a 65 dated. I just liked this wood too much to strip and change the character!

THANKS AGAIN!!

Nice rifle Chris,much better with a proper British stock on it. I like my Aussie with her thick waist but these British gal with their slim waist and smooth lines are really sweet.

That phrase sounds familiar for some reason...oh wait!! That mag looks sweet, we should take some time to test it out at PA.

Great looking wood you got on that L1A1!! I'm glad you finally got it to where you wanted it. I took mine out of the safe yesterday to put the wood furniture back on it... made me grin. Had the marynal polymer on it when I was out in the bush (of GA). Since I didn't buy that SIG I've had to avoid the marketplace because I'm feeling a strong urge to get my SLR some company in the safe Must resist!

Wonderful pictures well done

Excellent pictures of the SLR, it is great to see how well they are looked after and the fine condition of these examples, a lot of work goes into keeping them like that I know. I like to see them in the correct military spec rather than the sport shooter modified versions. These are all nicely preserved as a bit of classic military history for the future. Thanks for posting your pictures.

L1A1 Ammo to Weapon Ratio

So, not sure if I've got this right, but I think I'm on the right track. With 8 full mags and 800 rds in ammo cans, I may be set....for the moment!

8 full magazines and 800 rds back-up? That'll last thru about the first day of battling zombie hordes, or other festivities, but you gonna have a sore shoulder! BTW how short is that barrel? Looks to be about 16"?

My gunsmith cut it down to 16 3/4 in. He said it would not function properly any shorter. The gas port is on 3 and cycles just fine. Although it took some trial and error to find the proper setting.
