The FR F1 is a precision rifle used by French sharpshooters. It was manufactured by MAS (an abbrevation of Manufacture d'Armes St. Etienne - one of several government-owned arms factories in France). It has been upgraded to FR F2 standard, and is still in service with all branches of French armed forces in this version. It was first designed around the 7.5 x 54 MAS cartridge before being converted to 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition when it was upgraded to FR F2 standard. It was equipped with a scope, French army standard issue being an APX L806. Its practical range is 600 to 800 meters. It is one of the most accurate sniper rifles, due to its quality, free-floating barrel and efficient combined muzzle brake/stabilizer that dampens the barrel vibrations. The FR F1 utilizes the same bolt design as the older MAS-36 infantry rifle. (source taken from Wikipedia)
