I have a large assortment of FAL related items. Took a leap of faith into it and am asking for identification and value. There’s two lowers I’m perplexed by as they are 4 digit serials and I haven’t been able to source any information. I have posted on other platforms and all roads and suggestions pointed to here. Please learn me sumthin. Thank you.

Are you perplexed by the lowers in pictures 5 & 6? The serials aren’t very clear but they look like 4 digits. Both those were produced by FN for the German G1 contract. Only the German and Austrian contracts had the S-E-D selector markings. Yours are G1’s.
And yes, you do have a nice assortment of FAL parts! Welcome to the FALfiles.

I could sort it all out better here. Sell to me for cheap and I will get started ...I do see some g1 parts . First thing if you haven't already. Put every matching # part you find together and don't separate no matter what . I'm on a cell phone so can't see stuff that well. But I see g1 parts and stg parts for sure. Maybe a S.A lower or original fn fal parts. I would need clear pics of markings and numbers of what your needing to know about and so will others that may try to help. Some nice wood C stocks also without the trap door cuts I see.

Everything that is touching or in the same vicinity in the pictures is matching numbers. With the loose barrels I don’t know how to match up markings or anything to lowers or bolts. Most of the G1 barrels don’t have serials.

Wow, what a find! Looks to be mostly G1 and Stg as stated above. Look for Belgian type stampings that look like a number in a partial two sided box. The number designates the last number in the year it was made. They'll be stamped in out of the way places. Nice close up, in focus pics help us help you. Stg58 Austrian parts will have a number in an oval. Belgian barrels have the oval with "LEG" in it, too, and the perron on the bolts/carriers like these:

Like I told mentioned on Reddit. You have some very nice early g1's.

If you look in the image threads here you will see some more pictures giving you a better idea of each variants different characteristics.

Welcome to the Files!!! Glad you came over. There are alot of good info on here…

About the 4 digit lowers, they are low serial G1’s. Here’s a quick summary of them and the ones that came before: https://www.falfiles.com/threads/bgs-model-identification-and-serial-number-ranges.294149/

Also…the cheat sheet…G1’s have [6] and [7], StG numbered 1-20,000 should have [8]. You’ll find them on small parts like the trigger and gas plug etc etc but look for the ones on the side of the bolt, on the ass end of the carrier, and on the inside of the lower.

I went a long that and was able to identify some. What is the bird like marking that has 219 or 185 mean? As well as the BCG that says 222104 has like no markings on it.

Sorry for blasting this thread all at once. But some one had told me this was a south african kit but it has the belgian stamp on it. Does that mean it’s not a south african or that belgium made them for south africa? Does the circled HK on this dust cover mean it’s stg?

I assume you are talking specifically about date stamps on the barrels. The date stamp on FN Belgian FAL barrels are on the breech face of the barrel. I'll bet you can find some numbers in partial boxes there.

From the pictures you sent me…it is an imbel as the serial is marked on the right under the rear sight. FN parts can be found imbels from time to time.

Serial range is too high for an FN made R1 plus missing all the other proofs.

Even the reciever? I matched the wear patterns on the piece of receiver that serials matched to the lower to a barrel assembly and there was that Belgian chevron mark on the piece of receiver on the barrel assembly. Apologies if I’m asking dumb questions or not wording things concisely.

Hmm, I've never seen a t2 imbel lower. Are you thinking g it's an imbel, because it has a vertical serial on the right hand side?
It has a serial in the 20XXXX range. SA serials are never placed there and it is missing the typical M in U. Also the receiver stub is a type 3. If OP’s ok with it, I can repost the pic here.

I'm not following your reasoning here muchaco.

Pretty sure South Africans started at 200,000.

I have FN stamped T1 lower with a vertical serial in that same location.

The op has a t2 lower in the picture so, where does the t3 receiver stub come into play?

There are a shit ton of SA lowers that dont have the UM stamp too. Here's one

I must be missing something here.
