Very cool rifles! Built like tanks. 7.5x54. Hope it is not a 7.62x51 conversion.
Easy caliber to reload for. I sold a 1945, M36 Mas last fall, 300 rounds of ammo went w/ it. 80% was French 1960's.

Yup that's been on my list for awhile. I'll pick one up sooner or later.

I had an converted model for a short time. It was too dangerous to keep around. I noticed when firing it once in awhile it would double tap. Then one day it slam fired on me chambering the first round. I had my father in law and my son with me at the time. Thankfully we were respecting the gun and it did not hurt anyone. I will never own another one.

I had a .308 conversion and it was a flawless shooter. Never had a problem with it. The problem was getting .308 at a reasonable price.

I had a Mas 49/56 conversion from back in the mid nineties and never had a problem. I sold it back in the spring. It was the luck of the draw back then if you got a good one or not. Very nice rifles. Best regards
