Hi folks,

I have been posting original FAL stuff for years now. Still receive many questions on items that i already posted. Somehow it seems to be impossible to get a sticky on my inventory. Breaks my hart to see a "sticky" on a Dutch clone... Serious?

So, since i'm stuck with a lock down in Belgium due to the virus, i'll make one for you. And sorry allready for "GP", some pics are in High resolution. I tought collectors would love it for research. Sorry if his blood pressure rises for that.

All you see is 100% original, NO clones, no builds, just real deal as reference.
Her we go...

*drools on keyboard*

Paco, did anyone sell the ".308 Match" FAL on your side of the pond? Mine is semi-automatic only and, from what I understand, built that way from the start.

Well,

Lots of nice rifles there. No Parker Hale L1A1 or BREN L4, so its not a complete collection.:wink:

Thorack
Since you need a "collectingtheme" in Belgium don't see how it should fit in my themes?...

What is so important on a L1A1 or Bren L4.
I do have a Bren LMG in 303

Well,

Your looking for the best stuff right? The MAG 58 is a good start. :wink:

Just poking at ya. :wink:You have a lovely collection that is the envy of many museums, but really you need a BREN L4 and Parker Hale L1A1 if you want the best.

Take care
Thorack

Ask "GP", he has a lot of 'm i believe.
However, i think he prefers to keep'm for himself.

Paco
HUh? Pics of your attic aren't useful to me.

I have saved some of your images for reference, but until Jen sells it to me, the Fal Files, it will remain a mess of completely unorganized data.

Without an internal hosting ability, when FF goes away, all the knowledge we have collected here will be gone.

Since it is lock down, i might start taking detail pics on all my other FAL's.

No missing links in my inventory? Check.

Not usefull to GP? ok, the sun will rise tomorrow anyway...

Then i can use back high resolution pics i'll guess?

Paco. GP deals with dimensions and measurements so he can fix, maintain or modify the weapon. Just a picture doesn't help him a lot in doing his job. That doesn't mean he doesn't appreciate looking at them.

Yeah, when I said "picture of your attic isn't useful", I meant it. I've seen the guns before. A bunch of guns from 3 meters away means nothing.

What is useful is the closeup of the rivets on a Holland front sight, where I can print it, and using ratio and proportion, calculate the exact position to drill on a reproduction gas block.

Or variations in a Congolese FN - tall vs short sights, type 1 or 2 stripper clip cover - these are the things I save in my fal-paco-whatever-25.jpg library.

What makes this version different than that version, is useful. A wide view of "look how cool I am with all these guns" picture does nothing but stroke your ego.
