This hider came on preban FN FAL rifles imported by Steyr in the 1980's. It's not typically belgian, austrian, or british for that matter.

This same hider design was on the T48!

Any clues where I can find a hider of this design? Already tried DSA and they were clueless.

Huh. It resembles the L1A1 flash hider, but is different still. It's not a G1 type.

If you want a lookalike, the "Browning Long" flash hider DSA sells is probably close. If you want an original, I'd try over at the FAL files.

It looks like what they call a "long browning " design. If you'll ask over on the Fal Files forum you'll get the answer you are looking for. DSA used to sell'em a few years ago.

Here's a threaded and locking lug one that look similar.
