Not FALs but they do have wood! And I'm a sucker for an 870 Wingmaster.

Top one is an 870 Wingmaster that I've had since I got it new when I was 12. Blued finish w/ straight comb trap stock and 28" mod barrel.

The lower one is an ex-LE 870 Wingmaster I bought from 308shooter here on the Files. I was amazed at how nice the parked metal finish was once I cleaned it up. It has a nice 26" Remchoke barrel and I added some nice late 70's vintage walnut to dress it up.









The last one is another 870 Wingmaster from 308shooter. This one has a 30" FC barrel and has an awesome even patina. The walnut furniture is pretty worn out so I was going to refinish the whole thing. But the patina is so cool I think I'm going to pick up a vintage stock for it that might compliment the well used look of this one. We'll see.

2 FAL's at home, one has wood!

From day to day, my ability to post pix is granted by some deity unknown, hence the link:

Not my best photography, but will do for now.

Many thanks for the kudos!

Maple would be cool, tho.

milled MAK-90 import

Dunno why I haven't posted this before. IWD Euro beech Type-56 cut stock and lower HG.

Did a light 'gunstock' stain, immediately wiped off, and applied 'jacobean' stain. Let dry for a bit, then took hot water, nylon brush, and degreaser to it to 'rough up' the smooth grain to approximate mil issue texture. Then, another jacobean application; the scrub/bath it got also allowed this final staining to appear a little more natural. The softer think grain lines absorbed more of the light stain, so that's why you see such a striking differential. I had to do a bit of grain-blending which was a bastard, but once done, I was able to lay a few coats of satin poly down. The result is what you see.

Love it or hate it, yes it's got an Ulti-MAK and a Magpul grip, but it's functional and I refuse to desecrate a true Chinese furniture set to get it to fit the slant-cut receiver, even on an arsenal MAK. For an AK variant that can hit the 300 yd steel with little effort, I think it's a winner.

Just some Ironwood Designs walnut finished with Tru-Oil on a basic DSA.

ETA: Hardwear for the stock (ferrule, butt plate, sling swivel, screws) were purchased from Airzona Response Systems.

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

DSA 21" with various beech furniture.

PS Just installed Falcon Arms trigger reduction spring kit and reduced trigger pull from about 12 lbs to 6.35 lbs! Mucho better

Many of my wood photos were wiped by Photobucket during their hostage taking. Some are gone forever and some older photos I will try to find.
