View Full Version : Barrel threads-FN49 vs FAL

February 02, 2002, 23:52
I do not have my 49 where I can put a thread gage on it and do not have a dreaded threaded FAL. Are the threads the same on a metric FAL and FN 49 barrel so the flashiders and/or muzzlebreaks would be interchangeable?

No, but the FN 49 threads are the same as the G3/HK91 IIRC. 15mm RH thread.

A G-3 FH will definitely fit a pre-ban FN-49 muzzle!

Anyone sell a decent muzzle break threaded for G3 or FN49 (ie: 15mm RH thread)? I wanted to get a muzzle break rather than a Flash hider.

You might try TAPCO, they had some for the CETME which would fit fine.
