    yes, I know. I think green is a private purchase. I bought these and those from 1949 in the same lot.

    I am guessing a 60mm to 40mm filter adaptor....  Looks like 40mm male to 60mm female.... it is more normal to see 60mm male to 40 mm female.

    The one shown possibly allows British, American  or Danish 60 mm filter to M-51 mask 40mm female thread??

    Post by edstorey Sun Apr 19, 2020 8:48 am

    I believe there was a move in the mid 1980s to try and standardize the NBCW Mask filters within NATO, or at least have it so that at least each member nation was using the same thread and mount diameter.

    I finally found a bayonet frog. I think it's never used. Unfortunately, there no marks.

    I tried the connector on my belgian filter from the 80's and it fits. But why would they use that connector if it also fits without it.my belgian collection - Page 2 Img_2064

    I happened across a YouTube clip and took some screenshots. Showed the FALO rig being worn over M71 webbing and pouches, I will put some screenshots up on here when I get a chance.

    FALO gunners rig over M1971 webgear. Clearly armed with the FALO.  not the model D.

    Although often referred to as a BAR belt or FN Model D belt, I have only seen photographic evidence of it being used by troops carrying the heavy Barreled FAL (the FALO.)

    The FN 30-06 model D although being based on and developed from the  M1918 A2 BAR is not really to be described as a BAR, because the quick change barrel, and easier stripping than the BAR plus dual rates of fire means it should be viewed as a weapon in its own right.

    The model D was far easier to strip because it had a hinged butt and the return spring was removed from the piston slide assembly and placed in the butt.  After the removal of the trigger assembly, the piston slide the bolt assembly could be removed.

    The model D also differed from the BAR M1918 A1 in having dual rates of fire using an escarpment mechanism with a powerful clock spring, not the buffer system of the M1918A2 BAR.

    The Model D was a post war developed weapon not much related to the WW2 Use BAR

    I also saw it in that video. Yet these belts were originally used for the FN BAR. The bag on the shoulder of the mannequin is the barrel bag.
