    Re the SUIT, if you find one, if possible try before you buy, don't spend a load of euros on one that can't be zeroed.

    Check it for the original alloy UKicon data plate, as quite a few ex Israeli examples have been dressed up with fake decals.

    The Israeli examples are mainly (I think) 5.56mm calibrated, different range high/ low cam ??

    Did Israel use any them on their Fals too?



    They also tend to have an additional locking screw added to the release latch to counter the weak latch spring.

    Thank you for the advice on the SUIT sight mrclark303.

    Yesterday I checked the boresight with the 15m borsight chart, it was in the tolerance.
    Today I took the black beauty out on the range and it was very good!
    First zeroed with sight setting 300m on 100m distance as in the manual described.
    The first group fell a bit higher than 12,5cm, moved the foresight a full turn.
    Next group was spot on! 10cm above the point of aim.

    Moved the sight on 200m and fired on 100m distance. Result shown below.
    Being honest it can be better but I am happy with it!

    Excellent, good shooting...
    Wood set next, or are you keeping her in plastic?

    Thank you, I am very happy with the rifle.
    For now I will leave her in black until I finde a nice set of wood.
    Found a Hythe sight from a guy in Germanyicon, its on the way to me.
    What I am lloking for is right now the Tritium foresight blade.

    I tried DS for a copy of the EMER but did not even get any answer??
    Are they doing business now?

    Frank, the Tritium foresight blades come in two/three?? different marks.

    All are difficult to come by now.

    Good Wood work is also in short supply, either walnut or beech triangular two slot or first pattern (flat rivet) or second pattern Laminate forend, all are correct, depending on the era you want your rifle to represent.

    You will need the butt tool if swapping the butt over, said it before, but trying to fit one without the tool is like trying to feed cooked spaghetti up a cat's arse!!

    I think I stay with the plastic for the near future.
    Will wait now for the Hythe sight
    The Tritium foresight I found with a dealer is quite expensive at 55GBP I think.

    Had a look at the internet and found the gas plug reamer tool interesting. Is this a useful tool? I will also look for the butt tool, just in case.
    Are there any other tools that can be helpful to have in the toolbox?
