What buttplate is used on a Indian Fal?

looks to be an l1a1 plate( the metal one with the little round trap door) with a different arangement for the sling swivel. ( just uses a wood screw in the bottom hole then 2 more wood screws to hold the swivel on. where the l1a1 lower swivel mounts like an ar-15 one.I think :confused:

I think it is the same butt plate they have on the Indian Ishapore mark 4 308 bolt gun.It fits better & a bit larger than a Aussie L1A1 butt plate. The rear sling swivel is the same as an Izzie.

Dean is correct. Aussie & Brit butt plates do not fit properly.
