I do like that a lot. I just realized all of my carry guns are black, a P228, a G23, and a S&W M&P 340. My hunting and sport guns are wood and blue and of course there is the EBR. That is a nice gun.

I've thought about going with wood furniture on my L1A1... That just looks sweeet!

Where did you order the Ironwood Stocks?

Very pretty! Every time I see an FN L1A1 I think of the Brits in Northern Ireland or the Battle of the Falklands. It is definitely one of the last "manly" rifles left!!! :smile:

Yep, Ironwood. Matt does great work, fit like a glove. Only had to drill 3 pilot holes. 1 in the grip for the spring plate, and 1 in the butt for the top hole in the butt plate, and one for the tang screw in the bottom of the wrist of the butt stock. He was out of Maple, so I took Birch and stained it.

Nice, I got one with the black set and a wood set of stocks.


Looks nice,

The FAL is my choice for a MBR. Adpated by over 93 nations for their armed forces. That says a lot.....:smile:

Surprisingly enough, even traditionaly black battle rifles can look good in wood. If your not humpin it through the desert where weight is critical... I am a sucker for Black Walnut.

Matt is cranking back up the AR wood sets soon. I plan on converting my Colt to this...

:congrats: That does look nice with the wood on it. I usually prefer EBR's, but that just looks nice.
