For those that want to copy these pictures, here is the link to my Flickr website hosting the T-48 pictures.

Hopefully Flickr won't go the way of Photobucket.

I am just glad that I saved the pictures when they were first posted as I really wanted to make a T48 clone but I never could find the pieces I needed.

Now I am just buying parts to complete the projects I have so I can sell complete kits as I downsize my collection.

The 1954, T48, Wow!!!!
The H&R receiver, the wood, the cartouche, the M14 style flash suppressor........
In semi auto only.... So a clone would be a pretty accurate representation.

I would rather a moderator substitute my active photo links to SLR-5000ís original post to ensure SLR-5000 (Pat Jones) gets the credit for these awesome pictures. Sadly, Pat Jones is no longer with us (RIP) .

I can understand that, never thought of doing it like that. My goal is simply to have the thread cleaned up but your idea is a darn good one. RIP Pat.

I have to say, seeing Pat hold the very same rifle that's in the pics in the FAL Bible was very cool. I was absorbed into the book and the pics here big time, seeing history.

[QUOTE=SLR-5000;2510850]This is a photo documentation of the FAL type rifles at Marine Corps Base Quantico taken December 12 2008
Feel free to copy any or all of the images and use them as you wish.

Belgian prototype #28 as seen in the FAL Rifle reference book, Metric section page 94, figure 71
This rifle was proofed on March 14 1952 and then brought to America only days later.

Captain Ben Grant with #28

Pat Jones from SAF Lithgow.com with #28

second rifle from the right

The top cover is incorrect for this rifle but there were many different types of top covers and scopes tested on this rifle so it was very probable that the original was lost.

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)

[QUOTE=SLR-5000;2510874]





















Belgian T48 light barrel ser# D115, this rifle is most likely one of the first 70 rifles ordered in 1953 as the markings on the left side of the receiver are marked "FAL.7.62mm" and has a full auto selector.
The 1954 order were marked "RIFLE Caliber.30T.48_F.N." and were semi auto only with semi selectors fitted from the factory.














US T48 Harrington and Richardson

Pat Jones from SAF Lithgow.com with one of the 70 remaining H&R T48's at Quantico

Captian Ben Grant with H&R T48




A small metal plate is pinned to the rear of the sight to prevent the aperture from sliding back and off the sight ramp.

Bottom of carriers are polished to make the action as smooth as glass.
Hey photobucket.... You still suck.
