No.

In addition, FN-FAL's have been made in both "Inch" and "Metric" patterns. Inch pattern FAL's will accept "Metric" mags (alittle loose) but not vice versa.

STG 58 mags are interchangeable with any metric. I have seen some STG 58 mags with the nato part number stamped on the floorplate, these were belgian made, The ones that I have older than dirt dont have that. I know that they are STG 58 (belgian contract made) cause the boxes of 10 has that info on the ouside.

Check with Entreprise , But I heard that due to demand for their FAL's they might no be available. Also check with DSA not online call them , I picked up 5 last year that were seconds very inexpensive and have no Idea why they were seconds, changed the floorplate to a US made one (needed a US part)and they were good to go.

DUH I forgot get the 20 round kits and make them into 10 rounders yourself, I think thats still legal to do
