So! After 8+ months of waiting and wanting, my L1A1 is built!! (yay!!).

Two issues, I've noticed, however....

one: Is there a mag lock/BB that fits the inch pattern? I noticed the mag release is different than on a metric....

two: Is the bolt supposed to hold open on the last round? I can't fully function check for legality purposes (it's in two peices) but it doesn't appear that the mag pushes up on the bolt hold open thing....

In the mean time, I'm just glad I have her! But until I get to put her together and SHOOT it.... she just sits here... in half :(

L1A1 did not have the "last round hold bolt open" feature. The grooves on the bolt carrier and the deleted bolt open feature were incorporated in order to improve the rifle's reliability in sandy conditions.

Nice! There should be a BB out there or at least in the making. PM thedrickel, I know he has metric ones but might as well ask him about an incher. Also, theres an MMG in the works for this if you are interested

Nice rifle, if you want last shot hold open a metric bolt catch will fit and function fine.

I'm not up on any mag locks for FAL type rifles, but the L1A1 does not have the last round bolt hold open feature - you can switch to the metric type BHO easy enough.

Where did you get the flip down rear sight? I've been looking for one, no luck.

It came with the parts kit I had.

MMG would be nice, but I'm not sure if I want to take the flash hider off (wouldn't know how, first of all). I'll see if thedrickel has anything. For now, I just stare at her :drool:

:D Great pics of the L1A1, but pics of the mag /bolt catch area on the upper would be more helpful. You built it from a kit? Cause as it was stated in a prior post the L1A1's dont have bolt hold open, if you like that feature just change it . GOT TO LOVE METRICS :punk:

I bought a DSA inch receiver and had it built by Entreprise (only to find out that entreprise recently released an inch receiver.. oh well). As to changing the BHO, I'll have to look into that. my friend has a metric, so I'll compare! :D
