Cuban variant

Thought I would set up some specific variant image threads that "We" could add to and have a great collection of specific variants for reference.
Any stage of build would be great.





This is my early Cuban clone. Typically the barrel doesn't have a G1 style lug, it appears that some of the early ones had them.... this being one of those barrels.

Furniture got changed out to this.



Was...

Can anyone confirm the original markings on the left receiver leg? Or better yet have a good pic?

OK,

Finally getting close enough to being done to post some pictures.
Here's what I'm hoping is starting to look like a Cuban. There are still a number of parts I'm not sure about, carry handle, gas regulator, swivels, mag latch, bho, etc. It started life as one of the Sarco kits, & a Coonan upper. You'll see in the picture the locking shoulder wasn't in it yet, but I've since gotten one from Brad at GunThings, where the stock came from as well. The CH assem. is from DSA (how the ATF calls it an Op. Rod I'll never understand) will sooner or later have a different knob, probably an aluminum. Ultimately I'm thinking wood hand guards. The PG isn't original, the one that was on it had a big divot on the bottom, so I put this one that is cleaning kit cut on it for now.

It really looks nice.
You are good with the carry handle and vertical frame lock lever.

Thanks Flypaper.
I'm pretty certain the gas regulator is a Type A, maybe off an Izzy? the bolt was an Izzy. I read somewhere here on the files that FN started with the Type B regulators after 1956, but don't know what the Cubans would have had. What do you think?
