    Any of you guys know anything about this .22 trainer. I have never even heard of them, so rare would be my guess. No real google info. Thanks Gary

    Do you mean MAS-45? Those are French .22s copied off the German trainers, imported factory-refurb-new, and go for about four to five hundred. Those are superb.

    If it's something else, dunno. Never heard of the like.

    They have a very interesting history. The Fremch took all the tooling from the Mauser plant at the end of WW2.

    They are built like tanks and are usually good shooters.
