It does, so does the LAR-8
That is a mistake on Rock Rivers part. Rock River dosn't make them, they are made by Thermould. If you zoom in on the pic on RRA's website, you can read the label cast into the mag. Those mags are based on Thermolds Metric pattern FN/FAL-M magazine. Their original FAL mag had 3 raised bands on it and would not fit in the LAR-8, or the RFB magwell without modification. Thermould changed the moulds.
Been using thermoulds FN/FAL-M(M for metric) mags for about a year now in the RFB, they work good...
