BELGIAN MAGAZINE CHARGING ADAPTORS

 


ADAPTOR, MAGAZINE CHARGING, X1E1
These very rare adaptors were made by FN and supplied with the X8E1 and X8E2 British trials rifles in 1954. These were the forerunner of the British and Canadian magazine charging adaptors.

Markings: X1E1

Finish: Black paint over phosphated finish.

BELGIUM ARMY FAL ADAPTOR, MAGAZINE CHARGING
Constructed very similar to the X1E1 adaptor the front tower on this version is taller and is similar in shape to all other magazine charging adaptors. Due to the use of a gray phosphating process this MCA was used by the Belgium Army who preferred to have their weapons and accessories painted a shade of gray rather then the more common satin black.

Markings: 'H' stamped on the back joining flange.

Finish: Grey phosphated finish.

FN ADAPTOR, MAGAZINE CHARGING
Constructed the same as the above Belgium Army adaptor, these look identical to other magazine charging adaptors in service with G1, StG58, R1 and 'Holland' FAL's. Its almost impossible to tell the difference between each countries adaptor and for the most part you have to rely on the country the adaptor has been imported from to ID it.

The 'FAL' adaptors I have in the collection are most likely to have come direct from FN hence I'm using these as the FN example.

Markings: '2' or '6' stamped on the back joining flange.

Finish: Satin black paint over phosphated finish.
