FNFAL and L1A1 Kits
Please consult the BATFE for official rulings before assembling a rifle. Gunthings.com assumes no responsibility for kits or parts which are illegally used. The locking shoulder controls headspace and the headspace measurement cannot be determined until the barrel is installed in your upper receiver. If the locking shoulder included with your kit is not the size you need, we have all sizes of locking shoulders available for $33 each. Tools to determine headspace are on our tools webpage. We also sell the Gunplumber Arizona Response Systems workbook and DVDs which explain how to build the rifles, see the books webpage.
