BELGIAN MAGAZINE CHARGING
MAGAZINE CHARGING, X1E1
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.
Black paint over phosphated
ARMY FAL ADAPTOR, MAGAZINE CHARGING
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.
Grey phosphated finish.
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
'2' or '6' stamped on the back joining flange.
Satin black paint over phosphated finish.
