Re: French MAS 1949 semi Auto rifle

Beautiful Rifles. Love the MAS 49/56 MSE. I hope to own one one day myself.

Re: What Model Berthier Is This?

The stock with short forend is of the Mle 1892 Mousqueton type, the 5 shot magazine is of the Mle M16 type, the M1 carbine front band is a clever replacemnt for a hard to find part.
