Is there an indexing washer for Belgian short-type FHs? I want to index the FH in the proper position on my Imbel, but the damn thing doesn't time correctly. Is there a factory peel-type washer (similar to M16A1 type) but for FALs? Where can a guy get one?

TIA

It looks like they have one washer left, it is listed in the commonwealth section.

I have heard of guys making one from a paper clip. They are pretty soft and crush pretty well. I was going to try it on mine.

The best and cheapest way to index a FAL flash eliminator is to take a paper clip and wrap it around a 5.56mm brass case to form a small ring. The soft metal will "crush" and aid you with a good timing job.

I use this method all the time!
