    Thumbs up First detail pics of an original green FN made AK5 !!!

    Hi folks,

    As you know i'm pretty deep in to the FNC world. I think i can say that i have seen and touched more FNC's as most people on the planet.
    Anyway, last week i got my hands on a real FN made green FNC AK5.
    I had only a short moment to take pics in crapy light conditions and only my phone at hand. The owner is not the type that react on money, only by trading things he is interested. So, the struggle goes on to get it in my collection.
    So sry for the picture quality being not what you are used to see from me but hey, better then nothing. I challenge you to find better on the internet.
    Part2 in the next post























    Some remarks.
    the bolt hold open does not function on empty mags. The "finger" is to short and works only manualy. The shape is close to a FN CAL or the new FN SCAR, i show that later since i got my hands on SCAR MK17 Mod0 ; )

    The folding stock mechanism is the same as on the Dutch Trial FNC's.

    The front handguards have the re´nforced tabs welded in. but still the rivets.

    The boltcarrier and bolt are hand serialised. Probably due the local regulations that essential parts need serrials.

    The gasblock is unique.

    There is no "3" burst position, only semi and full. The burst assy cassette is empty.

    This trial rifle was used for evaluations by the Swedish army, later, Bofors factory localy made the AK5, just as Pindad made the SS1 localy

    How exactly is the barrel marked (e.g., 5,56 TW.7 or 5,56-TW.7)?

    Sry but i didn't check that. I had only a few minutes.
    Many things had to take care of at the same time. Also Covid makes that people had to wait outside and just wait till you come out...
    I dragged an full auto SCAR MK17 Mod0 Trial rifle out, me happy on that item.


    Shitty situation but i hope to get that green monster in my hands again asap ...

    Paco, had 2 questions. How come the bolt hold open wasn’t used as a last round/empty magazine feature? And what is the reinforcement on the handguards?

    Since the finger that should touch the follower of a magazine is to short, the BHO will not be activated.
    That part is simply shorter as it was on the early FN CAL
    Pics soon...

    The reinforcements are the same as the late handguards in the Belgian Army.
    Those nose ends tended to bend easy so the added an extra tab inside. Belgian army also replaced the rivet by screw. The rivets came loose and the HG made to much noise.

    Maybe it’s the lighting, but the finish on the lower looks glossy.

    What an interesting FNC, thanks for the photos! The smooth spherical cocking handle is also different.

    Good luck in your quest to trade for it.
