My 100th Post!!! And a question...
I'm setting up my gunsmithing shop, and need only one more thing - a breeching fixture for installing FAL/L1A1 barrels. Does anyone know where I might purchase one? I know that most folks here make their own, be they manual or hydraulic, but I am most comfortable with the hydraulic type - the method I used with Century Arms during my 5 years there. Fabrique Nationale has not answered my e-mails, and I cannot find any source on the 'Net for such a unit.
I think I might be able to have an acquaintance fabricate one for me, but I'd prefer a bona-fide, manufactured unit.
Anyone have any ideas as to a source?

Kevin Adams, NZ L1A1 Collector has an Aussie one.
He posted pictures of it not too long ago.
I don't think he would part with it since , I believe he was in the process of restoring it.
However , he may be able to give you some of the dimensions from his if you need to fabricate one of your own.
There are also pictures of it in the Australian 7.62mm Rifles Technical Brochure , and the supplement to it.
TAPCO offers a reprint of these manuals.
