Does anyone know if the Canadian FN/FAL 20 round mags from their former service rifle would fit into the Norinco M14 or the Kel-Tec RFB?

I've been told the mags will fit into the Kel-Tec RFB but if anyone can say for sure if they'll also fit into the Norinco M14 or some other rifle in the 7.62 calibre I'd really appreciate that information. Thanks!!

The Keltec RFB will take any METRIC FAL mag - with the exception of the polymer Moses mags. Even these can be made to fit IF you machine some of the reinforcing ribbing off the back side and spine of the Moses Mag. If you do this it will fit and function in a RFB.

The best mag to use in the RFB (the one it was designed to use) is the Thermold polymer 20rd FAL mag.

A L1A1 mag WILL NOT FIT a Keltec RFB - BECAUSE of the large front mag catch on the L1A1 mag. As I recall the Canadian mags are just like the Brit L1A1 mag. If you want to machine down the L1A1 tab to enable the mag to fit into a metric rifle - it will fit into a RFB.

FAL mags and NORINCO M14 (or any M1A/M14) are not interchangeable
