Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Early War MAS Mle 36

#1 Post by B32dominator » Fri Jan 12, 2018 11:12 pm

Finished a great collecting year off with completing my WWII major contribution collection, an early war MAS Mle 36. These are pretty rare up on the tundra, the only one I’ve seen here was a sporter model at Cabelas 9 years ago. It’s a May 1940 production, just prior or during the German invasion. It has all the prewar/early war details, it is all matching other than the bolt which is off an earlier G series. The bore is great and can’t wait to shoot it and see how she performs.

I have been looking for one that has been converted into 308 and then another that has caught my fancy was the 22 lr trainer version of that rifle..

Saw one at the Tulsa show.. it was from a pretty big gun seller on Gunbroker, he had a nice 22 lr trainer.. But every time I asked about if they had the
special 22 adapter cartridge the lady just gave me a dumb look.. and did not know.
