Anyone have one of these rifles? I'm thinking about picking one up.

I had one briefly. It was actually very reliable and decently accurate. Mine was rechambered to 7.62 NATO.
Many of them that we're rechambered had problems with rough chambers and feeding and ejection problems.
I have two of em, one in 7.62 NATO & the other in 7.5 French, great shooting rifles, at least mine are, here is a pic of one.............
When all else fails.
I'm looking thinking about the one in 7.5 French. Hard part is finding one ...
They are not that hard to find................http://www.gunbroker.com/Semi-Auto-Rifles/BI.aspx?Keywords=MAS+49%2f56
And don`t fall for the Sniper Rifle Hype, that one is not a Sniper Rifle, this is.............http://armesfrancaises.free.fr/FSA%2049-56%20sniper.html
I just bid on one ... I'm pretty excited to get this rifle.
They are kinda cool looking. And, as French, they've never been fired and only dropped once!
I won the auction and I'll post pics when it comes in!
