Swiss Stg57 Cleaning Kit, excellent condition.  This kit is for the Swiss assault rifle, but will work to clean an FNFAL or L1A1.


FNFAL and L1A1 Buttstock removal and installation tool.  Inside the return spring tube (attached to the rear of the lower receiver) there are two powerful springs held in place by the large hollow bolt which retains the buttstock on the tube.  This tool facilitates the removal and installation of that bolt and the two springs, by entering inside the hollow bolt to keep the springs aligned on the tool rod while you slowly release the spring pressure by easing it out of the tube.  Please use caution and wear eye protection!  Made in Iowa. Steel rod threaded into steel handle.


Just came in!  New and improved version of our popular tool.  FAL gas system and sight tool, made in USA, new.  The gas system end of tool adjusts the gas regulator on FAL and L1A1 rifles, and can be used to remove and install the gas tube nut which retains the gas tube on the receiver.  The sight adjustment end of the tool fits FAL sight posts which have the hole on each side of the post, which is the most common metric FAL post.

308 Win. Headspace gages for assembling FNFAL and L1A1 rifles.  Made in USA by Forster.  Pair of gages, includes SAAMI spec go gage and no go gage.  For detailed information on headspacing, please consult the Gunplumber's Workbook listed below.  It includes a very detailed description of how to assemble and headspace the rifle.  Locking shoulders, which control the amount of headspace, are listed on our FNFAL Upper Receiver Parts webpage. 


Gage pins for determining locking shoulder size on FNFAL and L1A1 rifles.  A set of 10 precision US made Vermont Gage gage pins in sizes .253, .256, .258, .260, .262, .264, .266, .268, .270, .273. The pins are 2 inches long, which makes them very easy to use. For more detailed information on headspacing, please consult the Gunplumber's Workbook listed below.  It includes a very detailed description of how to assemble and headspace the rifle.  Locking shoulders, which control the amount of headspace, are $33.00 each and usually in stock in all sizes.  


FNFAL and L1A1 Barrel Vise.  After clamping the barrel in the barrel vise, the barrel vise is held in a bench vise.  Lead vise blocks retained by U channel welded to thick plate.  The lead compresses against the barrel and facilitates an exacting clamp to hold the barrel, under even the most difficult situations such as removing old barrels from original receivers.  The perfect tool to install barrels on receivers and remove old receiver stubs from kits.  For additional grip, powdered rosin can be lightly sprinkled on the blocks before clamping the barrel.  The lead can be filed to match the shape of your barrel chamber contour.  Thoroughly degrease the barrel with laquer thinner prior to clamping, to ensure maximum grip.  Can also be used on non-FAL/L1A1 barrels.  Made in Iowa.

FAL/L1A1 Timing Rods for Barrel Indexing.  One rod attaches temporarily to the receiver, the second rod threads into the sight post hole.  Torque in barrel, rotate barrel until both rods are parallel.  When parallel, the gas block and sight post will be oriented correctly to the receiver.  The sight post rod is threaded on one end for FNFAL gas blocks, the other end is threaded for L1A1, early FN, tall Argentine and Israeli gas blocks.  Made in Minnesota.
