French Mas 49/56

French Mas 49/56

This is one ugly rifle, but damn it shoots good. I have one that was converted from 7.5 mm to 7.62 mm. If I use regular 7.62x51 there are signs of too much pressure, but I dropped the charge by 10 % of normal, and it shoots well and hasn't jammed yet. It isn't a tack driver, but out to 300 yards, if I can see it, I can hit it.

He has the same piece also in .308 Nato.. I was trying to find more magazines, but couldn't find any for him.. Don't think Reap noticed anything related to CUP.. But maybe he just didn't mention it.. I don't agree with you on the looks guy.. Think its a great lookng piece, but then again i've always liked the early magazine carbines.. Are you going to find a bayo for it..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Ok people, I see how it is here, if one isn't in the IN crowd, every thing they say or post is jumped on by others like a hen pecking party. This is wrong. All of us gun owners need
to be supportive of each other, not cutting each other down. I, myself do not like black
rifles that look like some one ran thru a gun show with a big magnet and sucked all kinds
of stuff on their rifle. But that is me, you never saw me make a single post about someones
weapons that was negative. If you do not like Hi Points, Savage, Glock, gravel shooters or
canons, that is your right. But down someone else if they do.
