Belgian heavy barrel T48E1 that has gone through US trials.

Handguards are missing and were most likely broken during trials



OOPS I drooled

Carry handle is offset and swept back like the Canadian heavy barrel rifles




Here is a pristine example of the Belgian made T48 E1. Bipod has been removed for storage in the racks.
Note the highly polished bolt carrier.


Belgian made T48 light barrel rifle.
70 light barrel rifles ordered in 1953 and then another 833 ordered in 1954. (other configurations were supplied in those orders totaling 3403 rifles)
