Re: Scoped the MAS 36

Ya, its ok and cheeks pretty well as is. The mount is set up to be off center just enough to clear the bolt and with medium weaver rings I got lucky and it all worked out. The match is shot off the bench for all but one course of fire that is standing off hand so there isn't a lot of moving from one...

It is a very accurate little gun and with the open sights and shooting my hand loads has proven good to go all the way out to 1k yards.

Re: MAS 49

I have been shooting the same hand load in the MAS 49 for some time now. Ejection is to the right about three feet and fairly consistent in placing them in same general area. I bought a goodly supply of 7.5 French brass from Graph and Sons a few years back in bulk. Its all stamped Frontier and has p...
