Yeah - I thought that looked familiar.

I've got three kids in Provo, siblings in Murray, South Jordan, and Alpine, and extended family up and down the Front from Ogden to Manti.

paracabine & coffee
[Rambling Story time] - one of my dad's buddies was in one of the units that took the Remagen bridge and then stayed in the USAR until he made O6. Said dadbuddy knew of my budding WECSOGgery skills and showed me his fell-off-the-jeep-and-followed-him-home carbine - at some point long after the war, the lower arm had snapped just short of that pivot point. I arranged to take the stock over to one of my juvenile delinquent associates who had learnt some welding in shop class and had his own setup at home. We used a piece of scrap rod (maybe bronze?) that fit inside as a splicer, came out nice and solid. Cost was one six pack of beer provided by aforementioned veteran. So if you run into a M1A1 stock with a weird lower arm repair.... [/Rambling Story time]

PS - hard boiled eggs make me fart.

I used to have one of the Tapco FAL mugs as well as a Tapco 1911 mug but, the ex-wife, in a crazy ex-wife moment, returned them to me by throwing them bodily and violently in my driveway. Needless to say, the pieces of shattered cups were worthless in trying to salvage for reassembly. I can build a FAL and, a 1911 but, I can’t build a Tapco cup.

🥲 ☹
They're not from Tapco but they are US made and good quality,On Amazon.

FNFAL coffee mug $12.42
