I just heard from Court in Florida and he said that another board member was building/selling Barrel timing rods.

Fal build help in FL

I am replacing by barrel on my FAL and I am looking for some help with timing and proper head spacing. I can probably swing the barrel part, but I would be interested in some help with it. I did it once before and I ground down the shoulder too much and had to shim it and I was always questioning it when I shot it.

PM me if anyone is interested. I am in the Tampa Bay area.

Thanks,
Bob

I make most of my own tools. I'm Willing to help, but I do charge for MY gun work, it's how I pay for my hobby; a soldiers pay sucks.

Not sure if I qualify as a builder, but I have all the Ratas calientes tools (alignment rods, vice blocks, receiver wrench), and I have used them to successfully build an FAL that hasn't blown up yet. I'm always happy to help with gun projects.

FAL gunsmith

I vote for Randy at Sledgehammer Arms Works in Jacksonville, TX. Drove over there from N. Dallas today and he did amazing work on my FAL's while I waited. Unfortunately, I had to replace a barrel in one but he had two excellent barrels on hand that were very reasonably priced. He's my FAL go to guy!

Northern IL FAL builder?

Can anybody recommend a FAL builder in northeast/north central IL?

My previous builder (RDO Specialties in Island Lake) appears to have fallen off the radar.
