    I just have a funny feeling in my bones and am confident - until NZL1A1 collector, aka KtK tells me otherwise - that these ain't not NZicon locally produced handguards at all. Just because the rifle comes from NZ, don't mean that the HG's are from NZ. THey're from somne other FAL user nation I'm sure. My tyres have got India on them, but they ain't been there!

    Hi Peter....I have "borrowed" the picture from falfiles mate...take a look, NZ pattern apparently, my Lithgowicon also has the NZ pattern sling swivel on the butt...plus what appears to be a NZ rack number on the side of the pistol grip......the evidence mounts!

    On the info panel in the picture "NZ replacement parts" it does say about the handguards pictured right of image (yellow) trials and (black) production
    but rather frustratingly the writing isn't clear GGGGGGRR!

    Still like someone else to confirm or deny it though!

    We'll see what KtK says. But from the what I call 'bleedin obvious' point of vies, allowing hoty air to vent into the line of sight is a bit, well......., er......., well........ mickey mouse logic to me.

    Are you out there Kevin the Kiwi............. Where are these wild unwashed antipodeans when you need 'em
