    This is mine with a very very early 1950s wood kit on it. So early that it has broad arrow 'war dept' stamps on the woodwork!



    The woods probably worth more than the rifle

    And again, same rifle.

        Despite being a huge Armalite AR-15 fan & prefering AR platforms in general for gaming, I felt a wee change was due. Having had an ARES L1A1 SLR for the last 6 years or so I decided some time ago that I would revamp it & source the original wooden furniture, for those more 'vintage' impressions.

        As such, earlier in the year, I managed to get my hands on this lovely complete matching set for a pretty penny...









        By now, I'd long planned on having all the parts changed over, with the exception of the pistol grip ofcourse. But...after hearing that I might have to screw around & modify the stock to make it fit my AEG I was real hesitant about going ahead with it - given that this set would look the biz on a deact SLR a mate has told me he might let go in the future. Normally, I dont go in for deacts as its about All Airsoft for me. However, at the potential price mentioned, well... I could be very tempted. So, I put the the idea on hold & the parts have largely remained in the box whilst I considered it.

        But! Seeing ARES are set to introduce a wooden furniture SLR & with the strong possibility of a seperate set becoming available too, well, I guess its: problem solved

        & whilst Im showing this lovely set, I figured I post this too...

        A Borneo kit set-up I took months back after literally unpackaging the set. As you can tell, I was that eager to see how this would look I didnt even wait to finish my tea..."without which no Briton can face his future."

          Hi; do RS top covers fit on L1A1/FAL AEGs??? I think no, because the receiver is too wide... I definetly think about CA SA58.

          Thanx!

            My one on the half way between FAL and L1A1.

            So I'll make and change all the different parts.
