FNC Bayonet question

I have done some research and found that there are two different bayonets for the FNC. One being what appears to be the tube style FAL and one the M7 that uses a bolt on lug.

The question I have is the tube style bayonet the exact same for the FAL and the FNC or do they lock up different?

Thanks for any info.

James

Hi James,

Nobody adapted the tube (c) bayonet.
The Belgian army has the US alike but with FN logo engraved and a serial on it.
Some lack the serial because they are armory replacements that need to get an engraving if some foll lost his bayo.

They are expensive and very hard to find, even in Belgium. The Bayo is considered as a "gun" in the army. So if one got lost, hell brakes loose on that unit.

Same for the original bipods, they got like 500$

I love my FNC but I had the para stock, which I hated to shoot with. I swapped it out and now it's a easy day on targets. I saw the riser on one that was in the pics. Is that a factory cheek riser on the para?

Hi Paco,

So are you saying the tube bayonet was never used on the FNC? If so that will certainly clear things up. I saw you pictures of the US style and they are nice looking.

They did some advertising with the tubular but it was not adopted. Even the Indonesean Army made there Pindad bayonets.

Also, it will wear or the finish of you flash hider.

You should market them and sell them as the para stock sucks for shooting the rifle imo

Afaik, the tube bayo was the only one available from FN distributors in the US.
So if you ordered an original bayo back in the day, the tube is what.you got.
I dont think mine has ever been mounted,,,same with my bipod.
