Extremely fine SD!
I like the Weissbier too.

Thanks!

I like Weissbier too, goes down easy on a hot summer's day!

ayinger
franziskaner

The franziskaner is a bit sweeter than other two but for $28 a case, is very drinkable. I do not like any of the U.S. offerings in this style, especially with prices that rival the best in the world with 3rd world taste.

You need to weld up the sear slot in the receiver section before welding it back together AND you need to weld up the sear slot in the ejector block(or use a semi auto block)as well. There are grandfathered sear-cut receivers, but that doesn't mean that you can make one now.

And fwiw, the reason that I/O got into trouble with ATF is that ATF declared that saw-cut was not a proper(current) demil, so as far as they were concerned the saw-cut receiver sections were still an MG. Current torch-cut receivers are currently available and it's perfectly legal to reweld them as long as you're making a semi-auto receiver. Take yourself on over to WeaponsGuild.com and you can see that those guys reweld semi copies of every MG you've ever heard of.

Back to BGS topic,........there's something going on in BGS land. I can feel it. There are more BGS B kits coming in somewhere. How many, who has 'em,......I have no idea.

I'm curious as to why everyone is putting a thread on flash hider on their rifles, when the barrel has the lug for the slip on type. Is it against the law to use the slip on type that locks onto the lug on the barrel? Or are those flash hiders hard to find now?

The lug is in the wrong place for a G1 flash hider. As far as I know, there's no other slip on available.

The lug is for a bayonet

These rifles are early limited production trials rifles using the names of Model A, Model A/F and Model B that used a thread on flash hider. The slip on type was developed later on for the final production Model C G1 rifle. A slip on flash hider is incorrect for these rifles.

Ah, ok. You learn something new everyday. I've been out of the FAL scene for a while, but still have my G1 I built a few years back. I've been starting to get the FAL itch again, so I've been hanging out here again more. Thanks again for the explanation.

Beautiful rifles by the way!!

No inside information,.....it was probably wishful thinking on my part. I doubt that it's true.
Geez, I had my hopes up too!

Well, looks like it is slow going on my Model A. Still need to have an A cut and a hot blue. Was going to use a surplus stock, but ended up using it for another project.

This is as far as the Model A got so far:
