    Mas m1949

    Picked this up recently. Goes with the others (MAS 36 & 49/56), but I think I'm done with the French line for a while....unless anyone's selling a Lebel or Berthier?

      Don't you just stick it down the barrel and hold it up?

        I thought all French rifles were white parade rifles that don't fire.

          That's usually mounted in their rectum.

            Those stocks look very good for being thrown down a lot.

              Damn....tough crowd. I should probably just sell these for really, really cheap...being they're French and all.

                Anyone wanna buy a French rifle? Never fired, dropped only once. Except yours Dan, those are awesome 😋

                    I think they did some of the MAS 49/56's (shortest barrel rifle in photos) with mixed results.

                      Yeah Around the time they were out, Id heard of nothing but issues with the .308 conversions. I didnt recall as to who had converted them. Guys bought them because of the scarcity of 7.5 and "cool factor" as I recall some were made to look like an AR but I could be mistaken. Enjoy them in there original chambering!

                        How do they shoot? History has shown they're not known for their excellent military arms.
                        I disagree. Their MAS 36/44/49/49-56's are known to be accurate, robust, reliable battle rifles. They suffer from tales of their military. They did those rifles right, from what I've read. What I can see is that they ARE very well made.

                            From what I recall, a now retired and living in Fla buddy from work had one in 7.5 and the thing worked very well. Accurate too! Post an AAR Dan if you can find that much ammo!

                              I added a 36/51 version. So there's a 36, a 36/51(bolt-actions) , and a 49 and a 49/56 (semi-autos).
