Which member purchased a L2A1 kit from me years ago?

Is it built? Would like to see some pics if so.

Didn't get it from you - built it up around the barrel and an LMT Aussie cut receiver. But I have some decent pics. It will be going to it's new owner tomorrow and the correct carry handle won't be here till next week.

Have three L2 kits but two were pieced together and one can't remember who I purchased it from. All came without gas blocks and while looking bought three complete L2a1s so may be selling some kits as found a gas block or two plus have inch cut uppers and the built rifles all are nice top notch builds on LMT and ABNI receivers.

The FAL is not a "platform".
It is a lady-lookin' foreign made collection of sexy Belgian curves that intimidates the shit out of today's Pajama-boy males.

It's not an Assault Rifle, it a Sport Utility Rifle.

No, not the same kit. The one that I parted with included the Tangent sight topcover correct carry handle.

I did not get mine from you. I collected parts starting about 25 or so years ago. I still have it and another one I pieced together in about 2 years.

Having the ability to use the search function would be a useful skill to acquire.

Thank you, having remorse for parting with the kit. A very cool variant but just a heavy semi-auto.

After driving myself silly over L2s now that I have several discovered they are my least favorite to shoot except prone or off a bench due to the weight. Still my favorite to look at and do not care that wife is tired of having one set up on coffee table like a sculpture or other piece of art for over a year now. She says it smells like oil all the time as I like it to have a nice shine as it sits as a loaded ready to run piece of art.

A piece of art is indeed. but after a few once I mocked it up and shouldered it, I thought to myself this is a solution to a problem that never existed. But that said I wouldn't mind having one again just to fondle now and again.
