Hi, I have consulted Anthony’s book and the internet without luck. When did FN stop using split tail magazines and go to button types ? Regards, Mike
I am not sure what you mean with A series, if you mean the A-prefix of 1944 those were all existing wartime parts so split tail. Split tails were shipped all the way through 1945. Only new production with new machinery brought the change in 1946 with the Danish contract being one of the first with push button.I suppose the change started with the A series serial numbers. I wonder when the change in post war magazines from aluminum followers to black plastic took place, late 1960s perhaps?
