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.

They are kinda cool looking. And, as French, they've never been fired and only dropped once!
