    The only FK I have be able to find:

    FK - initials of Frank Krack, inspector at Rock Island Arsenal ca. 1940-1941.

    Just to muddy the waters still further...

    F.W. Kubach Component supplier for SMLE No1MKIII in WWII. (Source: Skennertonicon). Company still existed in 1955.

    Patrick,
    Sausage fingers I meant F.K. of course bloody keys. I saw a carbine made up exactly like this made by BRNO. Frantically looking for a photo for you. Automatically had Langenhan in my head. Probably a Reising Model 50 derivative

    Patrick,
    Found what I was looking for, this is what was at the back of my mind for the FK look alike. This company do wonderous things in 9mm and .45, and if you look at the last image you will see the shortened Enfield conversion.

    "Wondrous" is not the adjective I would have chosen. Something on the lines of "barbaric Bubbary" seems more appropriate to my taste.

    BTW, we still haven't sorted out what the FK stands for!

    It seems to appear everywhere around that period but as you say no mention of its liniage, except FK BRNO of course!!
