    The Gunplumber is one and AGI has one also, do you know of others? Or have one of these? PM me if ya find out anything, I'm in the salem area also.

    I used the AGI video to build mine. Covered just about everything you need for the build. Only thing it didn't cover was how to figure out your locking shoulder size if it was smaller than the normal diameter (norm .254-.272 I think)

    FAL builder here also...

    the AGI video is lacking at best and I am a fan of AGI. If you can get the gun plumber video... much more detail.

    Ive put many together also . Found most info on setting headspace on falfiles in the archives.

    They are pretty easy to put together and you can make tools you need to do the job . All but the zz guages that MSC carries.

    I made the timing rod set up for timing barrel to reciever and action wrench in a few hours.
