FAL Stock

Post by crosshair » Sun Jan 15, 2012 11:18 am

Was there ever a factory stock with a textured finish in the black plastic?

It's not a FAL stock, it's an L1A1 stock and handguard.
That's commonwealth, (inch style), wooden furniture with an aluminum buttplate that's been sprayed with black bedliner.
Stock won't fit on a Metric lower, and the handguards are interchangeable inch or metric.

you sound pretty confident on that and I'm not doubting, but are you sure? only reason I ask is that I've seen those several times in the past in various places and never thought about it just being something that some dude just did with bedliner. Always figured it was a stock stock. [smilie=011.gif]

There's a pebble grain Maranyl stock set similar to the referenced that's also available, but that stock uses a different buttplate. I'm pretty sure Century Arms did a bunch of furniture sets with that finish as well. The Falfiles has a pretty good history of those, I can dig it up if you'd like.

ok, maybe the pebble grain is what I'm thinking of because now that I look at it again, it does seem a bit different than what's rattling around in my fuzzy memory. Not that I really paid that close of attention at the time anyway. No need to bother digging, was just trying to learn my fact for the day. :ber

My pleasure. With the L1A1s, there is British/Indian/Australian/and NZ variants. Then there's the US compliance stuff also. I'm much better at FAL metric/israeli stuff. Just saw a lot of sets like this one back in the early 00's....

There's a lot of old FAL metric handguards that got sprayed with bedliner as well.

Can you dig it up? I'd be interested.
