    ^ Things are looking REAL bad there lately. About 1/3d of my wife's family in CT is moving to England over the next few weeks. However I got a couple/few buddies in the LE/Security racket down there and business is good. It's the only thing keeping them there.

    Same for me. Having such a rifle I feel a connection to the conflict or event it was related to.

    I went with the G3 pattern rifles, but a Rhodesian FAL would be something I would welcome.

    One of my best friend's actually dealt in selling Rhodesian uniforms and such when he was in college. He really knew a lot about the conflict. May he rest in peace.

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    I hope to have the kit in hand this week sometime so I can go thru it and figure out what other parts I will need.
    I miss not having a rifle in 308.
    I have had a few very nice Belgian FN/FALs and always enjoyed shooting them but I love having a beater looking rifle that has actually seen combat because there is actual history involved.

    Leaving it as is, or going baby poo?

    We've got a hell of a lot more in common with the fellow citizens we're being trained to hate than the puppetmasters training us to hate them.

    Going to leave it as is more authentic that way.
    The buttstock on mine has someone's first name scratched in it so no way I would cover that up.

    Had some Rhody parts and decided to do up my para clone in baby poop colors. Thankfully the handguards, grip, & top cover still had a good amount of color, so I had them color analyzed & paint mixed to match. Applied said paints with an old sock, then distressed it a bit. Shooting it regularly certainly has added a little character as well. Definitely an enjoyable project


    Sorry for the crummy pic, the green is a bit greener than what the image shows...

    HEY! I take exception to that comment! LOL

    I will say though if you have an original pattern to base the restoration off of it helps. And I speak from experience
