    Isn't it that crappy little 50 round box thing that clipped onto the stud under the feedway
  3. not sure , it is part of the issue kit and held in the store as it was on the manifest, but i dont remember it at all
  4. in fact the number is 1005 13 1037501 microfisch anyone?
  5. Well...

    That's a Belgian stock number, so I would agree that the item you are looking for is indeed the 50 round belt box magazine that hung on the stud below the feed tray.

    And yes it was crappy...

    The vehicle mounting for the GPMG used to take a standard issue H82 ammo box.
  6. Allways used to knock the shite out of your calf /knees when running with it fitted and geneally got in the way.
  7. thank you both, it does now start to ring a bell in the old grey matter
