This Thread is closed for potential sales.
I foolishly began this to see if there was interest, but now it is violating the rules so,
See the New Thread Here:
Things are still going poorly for me. I have done two sales now. I think I need to do another.
I have two FAL rifles for sale.
Both are Century.
The first is an L1A1, and has the normal Pebble grain British furniture. It comes with one 20 round Israeli Magazine and one 10 round DSA Magazine.
This rifle is great out to 600 yards on an 18 inch target. I used an optic on this from day one. The downside is that I just fired it for the first time using the Iron sights, and it turns out that the barrel is under-timed by 2 or so degrees, so it shoots left. This is easily fixed if you have an FN receiver fixture. It is an $80 item, and some folks here on Gunco have offered to allow me to use theirs for the cost of shipping. I think I am at the point that I just need to sell this, and it's little brother as well. I am asking $650 and reasonable shipping.
The second is a South African R1, also a Century build. This rifle seems to shoot fine with the Iron sights. Also asking $650 for this one.
Both rifles are "Kalifornia Fixed", meaning that they will come to you with a Ten round Fixed Magazine, and the Mag Release blocked. To un-block, you remove the pivot screw, remove the mag release, remove the little section of finishing nail that is inserted into the center of the magazine release spring, and re-assemble. Now it is as God and FN intended it. Simple.
Both Rifles have the Tapco Stripper Clip compatible Picatinney Rail installed, both Rifles come with the original receiver covers. Both rifles come with a 20 round Israeli Magazine.And of course, both rifles come with a ten round DSA Magazine as well.
$650 plus reasonable shipping to your FFL. I have some extras as well, no mags, but I do have 5 round strippers (not many) and some mag loaders (original Argentine).
I hate to let these go, but the State of Kalifornia just re-defined the terms of repaying back-taxes, and I need to get more cash together to fend them off.
I will also be selling my last two or three Romainian Kits, two or three Cugir SKS rifles with Choate Dragonov style stocks, three engraved stainless steel Mausers in .308, an Ishapore SMLE 2A with at least 8 extra aftermarket magazines, and a couple of PA-63 Pistols.
Hit me with questions. PM Me if you want specifics. I will post up some pics soon.

Sorry to hear they're still after you bellson, wish I could help ya out brother, but I'm in the middle of a mid-holiday move from 29 palms to Oceanside, and typing this on the cellphone. Plus the wife wants some ridiculously spendy kitchenaid mixer/appliance.
But a major bump for Bellson, absolute awesome guy to deal with, and his mausers are top-notch. I still love the 1895 I bought from you! Best of luck to you man.
All I have to say is he builds great Mausers. Here's the link to the thread on the one he built for me.
I regularly shoot this at 700 & 1000 yards at the local range.
But then again, I'm crazy and shoot 1000 yards with my original 1903 Springfield and hit the 36" diameter gong.
If you can get one of Bellson's Mausers, you'll love it.

Good luck with the move. Oceanside is a damn sight better than the stumps, so that is good... Glad that you are pleased with the '95, I always like that one.
Just in case...
Tried to PM these pics, but not sure if they got there.
