Receiver and Barrel

If the rifle was converted to the FSK15, three additional serial numbers were added.  One to the knurled Bolt lock (keeps gun in auto mode).  one to the 30 round magazine release ( the new release blocked the view under the trigger guard) one at the front of the gas tube.

The MEXICAN crest found on all original rifles. On the FSK15  conversions this crest was ground off.  This particular crest is embellished in gold foil as a presentation rifle to King Alphonso of Spain.
