The proper name is "24 heures du Mans" and by the way what is "annoying" in a Frenchman ?

just shoot it proudly since it's a very well made French rifle but keep in mind it's been modified to fire .308 Nato by cropping the barrel, mainspring and forearm, its original accuracy may have been reduced by a poor barrel thread re-machining (no more shoulder at the barrel to receiver joint).
so it's best just to behave yourself (like a Frenchman would do) and shoot it as efficiently as you can.
