    Smile Original FN FAL M1 didactical cut away Belgian Army 1955 1 of 200 made

    Hi folks,

    The Belgian Army ordered 200 pieces of FN FAL M1 didactical. There serials start at 001. The receiver has the ABL + year stamp. ABL is the dual language abbrevation. "AB"L means Armee Belge in French and the A"BL" part is for the Flemmish speaking part, means Belgisch Leger. Belgium has 3 official languages. German is the 3th but we coolectivly ignore them
    They can ask my grandpa why we do that. That is, after they return his bike and cow and pay for that V1 that landed on his farm...

    These cutaways were non registered training objects and each batallion had at least one piece for instruction purpose.
    I have had two of them and inspected some 6 more. None had a serial above 200 range. It is a rare object, even in Belgium.

    The cutaway job is extremely well performed. They painted the internal parts according the instruction books.

    Check out, you got to admit, its a cool piece of history.

    When firearms were made of steel and wood instead of plastic and aluminum. Very nice slice of history you have there.

    VERY cool! I love cutaway guns.

    Also, thanks for the comment on German speaking Belgium. Based on your comment, I went and read some history. I lived in Brussels for 17 years, but never paid attention to the history of that region and did not realize that it was only added to Belgium in 1920 (and again in 1945).

    Belgium has an uber complex government system. You would not believe how many we have for 11.000.000 citizens.
