As a Page One-er, I go back a couple more years on the Blue Board. My first kit was a Brit L1A1 just because I had to have one after seeing the rifle in SGN. It was a few years later that I finally found a receiver for it. I think it was trying to figure out how to get it together that brought me to the board.


Edited to add...I think my Gun Plumber's Guide is on VHS!! If I can still find it.
The Mason-Dixon FAL Association wants YOU!! Ask me for details.

You never know what's going on inside the mind of a crazy man!!

My first FAL was a Belgian Steyr import bought brand new in 1980. Then I bought a couple of Armscorp Argentine FALs right before the Bush Senior import ban. (I was offered silly money for them and sold them both!) My first build was an STG58 kit on an Imbel receiver in 1996.

Now I do feel like an old fart!
