    FN FAL gas system parts

    I need the gas parts for an FN FAL, sounds like the spring and piston from an SLR would also work. If anyone has any of the following lying around:gas block, gas knob, gas knob retaining clip/spring, gas plug, gas piston, gas piston spring, gas tube retaining collar (the part that screws into the receiver) please let me know
    Cheers, Tom

    Wouldn't have an FN-MAG bipod in that box as well @gundoc? Haha...

    Apparently as rare as in the wild, was looking at one for the FN30-11 but appears to be a too-hard basket...

    @gundoc, you wouldn't have a L2A1 gas block by any chance?

    Sorry Mauser308 and Mavarick but I can't help with either of those parts. I would like a GPMG bipod for myself! The only L2A1 specific parts I have are rear sight leaves.

    I was thinking that a FN-MAG bipod should be available in the UK or USA and importable as an accessory, rather than a gun part as it is not essential to the operation of the gun, with no permit needed.

    Apparently they aren't particularly common, and as I understand it the MG version is a fixed item - removing it renders the gun unusable. The FN30-11 uses a modified version, basically a Parker Hale bipod mount cobbled onto the gas block mount for the MG. In itself unobtanium... Or so I have found so far...

    @gundoc - do you still have L2A1 rear sight leafs available? If so, can you please send me a photo of one - I have a friend that wants a specific L2A1 rear sight part
