Hello All,
I have recently acquired a Syrian contract M48 rifle, in very good condition.

I have seen the Israeli grenade launcher and am wondering if this would fit the M48. Also,
since Syria and Israeli seem to have been fighting for a long time, would it be reasonable that
some Israeli launchers would be used by Syria?

What kind of web gear or equipment would a Syrian soldier have used? British Pattern 37 or 58, Left over
United States or anything that was available. I like to outfit my firearms with appropriate gear.

Thanks!

I doubt the Syrians used Israeli grenade launchers. I suspect the Syrian M48BO rifles we see were imported from Israel along with Israeli 7.62 NATO conversions and possibly some Iraqi & Egyptian Mausers. They were likely captured during the Suez Crisis of 1967 but who really knows for sure.
