    Posted: 28 August 2013 at 12:23pm
So, most of my parts have come in for my FAL. Only missing a flash hider (going with a Belgian short-type combo hider) the appropriate locking shoulder (can only find out which one I need when the barrel is mounted to the receiver) and the bolt hold-open device (back ordered as part of my kit).

The neighbor is getting a barrel vise and wrench which should make installation easier, and I have one small cut to make on the hinge pin lug to let my Argie kit fit perfectly.

Going to go grab some baby-poop yellow paint and do a Rhodie camo job on it when it's all done. Sure, it's a Argie and not a R1, but it'll do for me! I'll post pics when I get a chance.

Why is it called a "flash hider" when it lights up the area you are in with a bright orange flame?

Because it prevents the flash from blinding the shooter, it hides the flash from them.

^ yup!

Shame on you Ceesman! Someone tug on his face and see if he's actually Diane Feinstein wearing a Ceesman mask!

But yeah, it's to help prevent flash-blindness for the shooter. Mind you, the libtards who want to ban evil black rifles believe it means it hides your muzzle flash from others making it harder for you to be seen when you're mowing down crippled cancer-ridden children at a baby seal petting zoo......

You think I don't know that?LOL I have to explain this to anti's quite often as well as to why there is no such thing as an "assault rifle" and that that term was developed by one of history's greatest human monsters for morale and propaganda purposes. Today it used by equally every day monsters....left sided politicianswho believe that if you take away guns that all crime and evil in the world will go away instantly.
And the next time you have my name and Feinstein's name in the same sentence I will kick you in the jimmies and then by you a beer. LOL

Yep! She doesn't even know it exists, so NO TALKING ABOUT IT ON FACEBOOK. Seriously, this is something that she'd probably bring up the "d" word over....

Overview. Need to make the "Argie Cut" on the hinge point on the receiver, just 1mm shaved off so the hammer pin doesn't prevent it from fully closing up.


Close up of the CAI receiver and the kit. Mismatched color won't matter once the baby-poop yellow paint gets brushed on everything.


Chrome lined and unused!


No raw metal on the threads. Never used barrel!


Bag-o-internals

From what I can tell, most of the kit was never issued. Handguards are dirty/touch-o-rust from being issued, but that's okay with me. Barrel is unused, so are the internals, piston, and gas tube/block. Light coating of cosmo on everything. They didn't ship the bolt hold-open device because it was the only part missing from the kit (and thus it wasn't sold yet) but will ship it as soon as it gets in. If it takes too long, I can just bite the bullet and grab one from gunthings.com for $25. Barrel is threaded for the flash-hider or other goodies. Just trying to decide whether to send off to the RSA for a combo front sight (rifle/rifle grenade) to make it more "Rhodie."

Since your wife doesn't know..

Does she even know what a FAL is? A FAL can be a shotgun or something you already own for all she knows.

She knows the term. She doesn't know what it looks like, but she DOES know how much it costs, hence the DO NOT TALK ABOUT IT ON FB!!!!

I'm not worried about her finding the actual rifle. It's in relatively plain sight in the gun safe. She just doesn't know what all is in there or what everything looks like. But she's a smart gal and we talked about me building the FAL and I was told I could go piece by piece over a long time but not the full kit (upfront cost vs amortized so to speak) She'll have kittens if she knows I bought a kit.

Don't forget Kayback, I have people who go to Capetown every year.... I know you're thinking "He works at an Episcopal school, and that's who goes over every year," but I will have our chaplain hunt you down and proselytize to you for a week straight if you leak this.....

You're all a bunch of capitalist pigdogs and I'm the only person who decides there is profit in this? I think you are all jealous :p
