FAMAS mounting / montage du FAMAS
French jeeps were rarely, if ever, fitted with the American style carbine holder. However, a bracket was produced to secure the FAMAS which attached behind the screen using the same mounting brackets. The kit was not widely used but has turned up on M201s that remained in active service during the final years. The example shown above is the most common type and it is interesting to note the European camo green factory colour used on the bracket set above. Most that I have seen are a standard French army green factory finish. The kit was designed to fit directly to the original mountings supplied as standard on the front panel. The bracket for the butt did require a hole to be made for an additional bolt. The rare example below is of what I assume was the final all rubber type.
