FN Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Here are some pictures of my King Arms FAL with Israeli handguards installed. I am working on getting the wood stock on it too, but for now I just have the handguards. They took about an hour to trim and fit onto the gun, but the effort was well worth the trouble.

In the Project section of the boards I have a thread about the joys of fitting wood to a STAR L1a1

They look great Red5! how hard was it to mod the wood stock, and pistol grip to fit the King arms L1A1?

The KA was already wearing the wood when I purchased it. However I'm led to believe that it's a much easier job to fit the stock. However it will still need to be hollowed out as for my Star build.

 

The pistol grips on both AEGs are the plastic ones that came with the rifle. They have just be filed down and painted to look like wood - the realgrip can't be hollowed out for the motor.

 

Both the stock and pistol grip are covered in my projects thread if you are interested in finding out more.

 

:D

Finally finished putting on the wood stock on my KA FAL. It was a rather simple process really, just cut the original stocks mounting block, cut the tang slot a little bit longer, and bored a hole for a Lipo- Stick battery to fit. The hardest part of the build was finding a screw that would fit, so I built my own.

 

Modified a 5/16"x8" Carriage bolt by boring a hole and tapping it for a 10/32 screw, which then screws into the receiver. The screw runs through the original hole in the stock for mounting to the RS version, works like a charm!

And all mounted up with the Israeli forguards. Since it was so easy to modify the stock I am probably going to pick up a blonde stock now so the Israeli grips match, then I will essentially have 3 guns in one, a modern(er) polymer stocked version, wood stocked, and Israeli FAl (minus the few slight differences the real Israeli FAls have from the FN versions)

And with normal wood handgaurds

I love it, it feels great, looks great, and now it smells great too! I have a metal buttplate coming in the mail, hope it arrives soon, as it will be the final piece of the externals on this gun.

That sling adapter did you make it, seems to be a good idea for keeping the butt plate on.

 

na i was going to make one simuler but ended up takeing the easy way out and ordered a FS2000 sling off urban ERT.

its a 2 point and 1 point.

only bad point is the 2" webbing tends to chafe my neck so i threaded it thro my tac vest
