Some examples of matching main and backup/offhand weapons.
- Viking sword and hunting knife
- Rapier and off-hand dagger
- Katana and wakizashi
- .357 lever action carbine and .357 revolver
- FN SCAR and FNP-45
Paired weapons, in addition to sharing commonalities that increase usability for both weapons, look really darn cool.
These shots were shared with us by a loyal FN fan who recently had his FN-49 restored by Arizona Response Systems, who specialize in restoration work for vintage or antique firearms.
The FN Model 1949, chambered in 7.92x57 mm, was designed by Dieudonné Saive and produced by FN Herstal between 1948 and 1961.
This particular rifle was manufactured for the Egyptian government.
