Good condition. Manufactured in Sisters Oregon. 4-20 round mags. $1050.
Scope included? Still in Sisters?
scope is included. It was manufacured in Sisters, I am in Salem.
I will take it
Is this a Williams receiver - the aluminum one - they were made in in Sisters OR
What kind of upper receiver and parts is this rifle made from?
I bought it
Looks like it s a parts gn - Rhodesian receiver and alumalite receiver.
Cool, just curious, I already have 3 FALs.
where is a good place to get a replacement upper receiver?
You could try to get a new DSA, COONAN, or ENTERPRISE upper, or try to find an used IMBEL one. Think I saw a few on Gunbroker. I'd check falfiles for more info, might even find something there.
I talked to the gentleman who sold me this and he is a stand up guy. He is willing to work with me. This rifle has a cracked receiver that is around 3" long. I want to find the cheapest and best method to resolve this problem - I want the gun to work when done. So I need to find a receiver for this rifle and maybe someone that can put it together. I believe that other parts are in good shape. I could use someone's knowledge that is better than mine about this. Constructive input would be really appreciated on this.
For future reference - I am new to the FN FAL however it is my opinion to stay away from William receivers ( made out of aluminum ) out of Sisters Oregon.
I'm unfamiliar with William receivers and I lack the expertise to be properly put one together. I'd check FALFILES, it's a good resource for info, might even find someone local to help out. If I find someone local that has the experise, I'll let you know.
do you know if this will fit on the Rhodesian lower?
if not - thanks just the same.
There are two basic types of FALs, inch and metric. Although it has the L1A1 designation, I think its a metric upper which should fit as ENTERPRISE doesn't make inch ones yet as far as I know, but I'm unsure.
