    Can I mate a complete Aussie L1A1 lower to a complete (pre ban) Argentinian upper and expect it to function properly? Will the L1A1 wood handguards fit a metric upper without any modifications?

    These threads are very fine. Whats the proper amount of takeup, in degrees? Am I supposed to put a conventional wrench on the flats, or use a belt and a strap wrench?

    That looks like an 1892 / 1894 krag rear sight. Go have a look

    Thats surely a Bannerman parts gun. The lockplate was NOT made by SA.

    Have a look at the 1884 trapdoor I have in the "For Sale" board for a completely correct trapdoor :D
