Century Arms International - Century FAL Sporter:
Century Sporter Rifle
Judging by the purchase date which if I recall correctly was July 1993 I have one of the earlier model Century Sporter's "Century L1A1". This gun is assembled from both inch and metric L1A1 (FN FAL) parts. The rifle is made up of an inch pattern parts kit fitted to a metric upper receiver. The rifle accepts metric magazines only. Newer models accept either magazine though the inch patterned might wobble slightly. The Century Sporter ships with what I believe to be a fiberglass Bell & Carlson thumbhole stock painted black and a matching fiberglass handguard . The rifle also ships with flash suppressor removed from the barrel. My unit arrived minus a carry handle. There wasn't much internet at the time so a call to DS Arms had a new carry handle and about 20 new magazines on their way to me. At that time magazines were only a couple of bucks.
