    Second date.....I think we are working things out in this relationship!

    OK, decided to start a new thread ....this is a follow up to my barrel/flash eliminator issues on my inch pattern L1A1.
    1-got some great advice here
    2- Bought a new "reproduction" barrel from L1A1 Aussie FAL Reproduction Barrel | Sarges Military Surplus
    3-sent it off to Bruce Dow for intallation: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dow-A...55743487797921
    4-went to the range this morning.
    Here is my second target at 50 yards with the reflex sight. Not too bad, I think.
    (I did not bring my combo tool, so I could not adjust the front sight. I could not do much with the battle sights accuracy wise. I will need to study up on how to zero them for next time.)
    So here is my range report:
    -since I was trying out my "repro Aussie" barrel...I dressed her in Aussie wood furniture.
    -50 yards, off the bench, Federal Lake City 149 gr ammo.
    - yes, 3 rounds.

    Great start Trooper, do a bit more brass conversion with her to settle down the new barrel and push her out to 100 yds.

    All looking great so far.
