FAL gripstick trigger shoe

Postby drooling idiot » Sun Dec 03, 2006 3:33 pm

Hi guys just some quick pics.
I never liked the FAL trigger in the gripstick its too narrow , looks way wrong, and was traveling too far back and causing me some hang-ups and trigger slap.
So i cut an original and welded it over the FALs and then notched the original JUST enough to release the hammer . i feel it was a big imporvment and since i'm posting pics today thought i'd share.

All the parts layed out

weld at the tip of the FAL trigger

Side view trigger shoe before polishing the welds & reblueing

Trigger shoe installed ready for testing

Original gripstick for comparision

Its amazing anything works right around here with a bunch of
over-age juvenile delinquents running the place.

That is cool I was sizing up the same idea last night to see if it would work. You have confirmed my thoughts on that thanks.

Had the idea when I did mine. This is how I did the dustcover and also how I did the grip attatchment. The dustcover work just like the orginal. This holds the grip alot better than others I have seen. Just posted If anyone wants to use on there build.

Looks good! How did you get the dustcover to operate? Thanks. ---bil

Look at the new piece of metal that is larger than the orginal area on the dustcover latch. I put a screw in place to hold it in place. Later, I went back and had it welded in place. The bolt hits it and opens it just the the orginal. Cool hun.
