Notes On Rifle, 7.62mm - X8E1 (FN Type A), X8E2 (FN Type B) for Troop Trials 1954

Not Mine. Just passing it on after converting to jpg with consideration to best ratio of minimal artifacts/image size for uploading here. 32 images total 4.7 MB.

Added: Although my file copy came from a different source, you can download a pdf copy (14 MB) from Forgotten Weapons.
