You guys keep forgetting about Belgian Mausers. The 24/47 and M48 are patterned after FN designs. I have a 24/47 that was a Belgian M24 at some time.

The first rifle i ever shot was a 8MM mauser, i loved the crap outa it, my buddy was going to sell it to me when i was about to leave for college but i let it slip away and i have always regreted it, we use to buy a 1k case of mil surplus ammo for 50 bucks, go to his cabin in the woods and blast away, even made our own rounds for it, you got a pretty good deal enjoy it.
