I do have a flash hider already for my R5 build, I am trying to get another one for my cousin in Honduras. He wants one for his Galil SAR
    The round-holed flash hiders are proprietary Galil Muzzle Brakes. One came with the kit I sent you. They are threaded with an additional grub screw to stake it onto the barrel threads.

    I believe the "Bulge" was to keep the bayonet properly seated, but don't quote me on that one.

    Not produced for Domestic Sales? Too is too bad. That is almost as bad as they are not for sale here in the States

    PDF

    I found some PDF's of what appears to be LM4 series rifle (nothing else posted on site except these pics). Hey since it's all about SA rifles here , I thought I would post for information.

    PDF R stock

    Here is what looks like some type of armorers manual for the R series, notice the brown paint and the rifle looks new.

    I got hold of someone who redirected me and confirmed that Nobleteq supplies there products to civilians as well. They indicated there is a backlog on the LM5's and its estimated for going for about 15k a piece. I have not recieved any word from Nobleteq themselves yet to confirm price.

Have you purchased any parts from Nobleteq personally ( I guess you know what I'm going to ask next)? here it is: Do you think they might have spare front sight hoods? Thanks for the info on the flash hider BTW. That solves the mystery for me. TH are you still a active lawman in S.A.?
    Hi Lou.

    Yes i have purchaed spares / parts from them and they have been helpful and efficient. I baught all the springs in the receiver, elastomer rubbers, buffer body, new cleaning kit with all the bits and tools and firing pin springs from them. Im waiting for them to get back to me regarding a stock.

    I usually open the drawing i sent you and give them the correct name of the part and the corresponding part number if they cant find it. I'm sure they will have spare front sight hoods.

    Drop them a mail and let us know if you come right.

    That brown colour looks horrid. I haven't seen a manual like that before. Here is a link for a SADF R4 repair manual. Thank Craig at Gunsite.co.za for the effort. It is big (74MB) but well worth it.

    Love the way the SAR selector on the left hand side of the receiver is recessed on those R series rifles. That makes a bit less likely that the selector would be pushed accidently from the automatic to semi-automatic mode by the thumb. I have to be a little careful not to do that on mine, since it's a conversion not a factory gun.

    I was curious with those pictures because the top cover does not have a serial number on it. Does your LM have a serial number on the dust cover on the rear sight? Thanks

    Hi Lou

    Just had a look, no serial number on the dust cover.

    Ruski, i was also keen on getting a LM4 in the beginning as i was used to shooting the R4 (Commando weapon) on the farm, but i was advised against it due to the extra weight. Guys i shoot 3 gun with that have LM4's bitch at the end of the day. Its a lovely gun, but i wouldn't want to slog it around, im happy i went with the LM5 which is heavy in itself. I could never get used to that bipod, i'm shortish and shooting prone with the bipod was uncomfortable for me, the rifle was just to high.

    Lou,
    I know the pic above doesn't show a serial on the top cover or ADY's R5 doesn't have one: but both of my builds have a top cover with the unique serial number stamping like mrf2 post (#23) on page 2 of this thread.

    Hey all, The R5 originally only had the serial number on one place and that was under the front gas block 500/00072 The flat underside, the police weapons were stamped here and highlighted in white as you can see in some of my pictures. But to fall in line with some of what the new firearms control act waants to do they marked the carrier, sub assembly, body sub assembly and Bolt with laser engraving putting the serial number on there and SAPS. Those are the only non factory markings.

    Adipose, I was trying to figure out why it did not have the serials on the cover? I love your R5 build man! Hopefully it will not be long until I have my very own Those pictures look like they came from a manual of some sort. I just could not find the rest of it. If this is a R manual it has a lot of detail. I wish I could find the rest of it. Ady seems to be on the right track helping find it.
