    That's an FN-49 made for Egypt, so it should be in 8mm Mauser; have you stripped it down completely, and checked the gas system? They fired a lot of corrosive ammo through those, and it's something you have to watch for.

    Thanks SDC. Haven't stripped it down yet. It belongs to a friend but I will suggest just that
