    I see the IMBEL ones go for around $550. Wooden furniture for them are reasonable.

    Imbels are not the same as the C1A1. Imbels are metric while C1A1's are imperial. They are a completely different rifle. In Canada C1A1's go for at least $1000 but you have to hold a 12.5 prohibited license.

    I see them on a regular basis here in Houston. Go to gunbroker.com and gunsamerica.com. Since you live in Commiefornia I might want to check the legal issues first.

    I stand corrected. I thought all FALs are basically the same.

    No sweat bud. They look the same but the parts dont line up

    Here is my small collection.

    From top to bottom.
    Indian Ishapore 1A1, British BSA L1A1, Canadian C1A1



    Here is the Indian 1A1 with the proper stock

    We have really generous gun laws up here in OR so it will be legal up here. I'm about 95% sure it would be illegal in commiefornia though.

    EDIT: Looks like DSA makes some California legal FALs, so with some modification you might be able to make one legal.

    The C1A1 also had the ability unlike, for example, the L1A1, to reload from chargers. Note the opening on the picture (top) above.
