I love doing business with Slim. I have done so for nearly 3 years. When they have the parts in inventory, they are sold at very reasonable prices. Slim and Indiana Army Surplus are my go-to retro store when I want original parts.

Where are you finding these ? I went online to Indiana Army Surplus looking for some genuine Colt teardrop FAs but dont see any of the things you ordered.  Is there some secret category?

I got two from him last week in good shape for $40/ea. Id rather have originals for a few extra bucks than take a chance on the repros that may or may not fit.

When i was on their site there is no link for these. But when you call its like the retro gods have heard your prayer.
The parts just magically appear st my house. Ok,ok. Its probably not an angel. But its got to be the stork or something.

Are these the genuine teardrop FAs that are kind of rounded and thinner on the forward edge or are they the newer boxier ones?  I also think the older ones have one more line on them than the new ones

Got my order yesterday. I ordered 2 type E stocks, 2 A1 rear sights, 2 handguard sets, 2 teardrop fa, and 1 A1 pistol grip.
All the items were in very reasonable condition.
1 item was left out of the order. Slim was so fast to make it right that i felt bad about it so i offered to pay shipping on it.
This company is old school as the guns we build! Awesome vendor!!
Also, Slim said he has never built a rifle! We need to encourage him to fix that.
