Thumbs up

Thanks again Paco for sharing.

Are these the tools that were assigned to each unit armorer or were these used exclusively in Zaandam?

I wonder if those sets were made in Herstal or in Zaandam?

Very nice wood case with everything inlet so it's easy to account for in the field. Looks like they took good care of all that too.

I see the "go" headspace gauge has the cut out on the base for a spring type ejector, was it the same gauge used on the FN MAG?

In the UK all our 7.62 weapons had different size headspace gauges .

The only headspace gauge used on more than one weapon type was one of the L1A1 gauges was the same as the L96 sniper rifle
