Something about milled ones are pretty.Unissued SLR95 (new slr95's demilled post ban and imported as matching kits) built on a SLR100H receiver w/ Bulgarian Blonde furniture.
Just a comment: The trials T48 had a long flash hider. A very nice pair of FALs.Not a bad virgin post here if I do say so myself:

Two Armscorp "T-48 .308 Match" from around 1990; their serial numbers are 103 digits apart.
I bought the standard model new at a gun show in around 1990; it's unfired. I wanted one then that looked like FN's submissions for the old "replace the Garand" trials - and here is was. (A "T-48" no less. )
Holy-coincidence, Batman: The FALO appeared 30 years later as an online sell-by-owner in Nov. 2021.
Per the seller:
"Excellent and possibly unfired Israeli heavy barrel FAL (FALO) on a pre-ban Armscorp receiver. This rifle was made between 1989 and 1993 on NOS HB FALO parts kits from Israel. Its is complete with the bi-pod, coupler, and flash hider. Very difficult to improve upon. The bore an internals are immaculate. The barrel is original Israeli."
He was unloading some "too pretty to shoot" items. Some may cry but both of these are in that category for me.
Comment: If a guy had just the FALO it might feel like an unscratched-itch. But the two together are a match made in Saive heaven!
Made me look - from Musgrave & Nelson, The World's Assault Rifles and Automatic Carbines, 1967:The trials T48 had a long flash hider.
Not all. Some were bare like the early Izzy's.The trials T48 had a long flash hider.
Precisely! To those of us who came of age as gun people with the pictures in those reference books and never expected to see these things in our living rooms, that's worth something.Armscorp made a clone t48 tribute kinda rifle. Not really close to the real t48 but the receivers said T48 .
Plus, compared to a lot else around then, they were expensive. "Why spend so much for that old gun when I could buy this brand new mini 14 for less?"Im cloning one now. A High Standard T48, only like 13 made. Been working on it a few yrs. Building or buying one part at a time. I never thought Id ever have an Fal or L1a1. Could of bought em cheap 25 yrs ago but wasnt interested in them at all. Id pick em up at gunshows thinking man that 400 $ gun is too heavy. Now I love them. I did not know any history or how many variants there were back then. Very interesting rifles to me.
I love the pic with the Tesla album in the background!!! One of my favorite bands!!Here’s a few of my woodies, the ones I have pics handy for at least:

Thanks! One of my favorites too, only got to see them once but the place was tiny, they played a killer set and the show was 3hrs long. Funny, you're the second person to compliment that album on here. The files has some good taste in guns and tunes that's for sureI love the pic with the Tesla album in the background!!! One of my favorite bands!!
Very nice!!!!A lot of high school wood shop projects are better finished:
My man, that is horrible. At least you can have closure now that you found it?Well, 2 years ago I bought a type B stock. Nice one made by sliver crescent. Seller shipped it. I found the box and all its stuffings when I got home one day. Ups had left it at out to the dogs instead of walking a few more steps and placing it on coverd and gated porch. I looked for that stock for a week until I gave up. Evidently it had been buried. I found it today in a cow pasture next to my driveway. Lol. Heres before and after pics. It was the lighter colord one. Maybe I can get $500 for it on broker.
If I had a b stock I’d hook you up on it. I have some well used g1 c’s coming if you are interested?Ya..dag gummit . Thats bout all I can say
