I recently acquired a Venezuela Fn49 7 x 57 in excellent condition, except it's missing the flash hider. It has the threaded cap in place, that seems to match the rifle.
Three questions I have that perhaps you can answer--
1. Are any Venezuela contract rifles known to have been delivered without the flash hider?
2. Where can I obtain an appearance-correct flash hider?
3. All part numbers match, except that the bolt carrier is not numbered. Is this correct, or is it a replacement bolt carrier?
