    I had no problems obtaining 7.5 French- it was all in Arabic - I assume theSyrians were turning out a good amount

    Back when I could get inexpensive French rifles, the ammo was virtually unobtanium, or selling for prices that resembles today's prices.

    Lovely weapons!

    I really want one of the 7.65mm pistols.

    I love PPU and how it feeds my MAS36. I bought a bunch of 7.5mm French this summer at a military focused LGS for $16.95 a box, or about a $1 more per 20 rounds than what .30-30 FedRemWin sells for at Wally World.

    Amazing...

    I first saw the MAS 49 in 1967 in the back of a Land Rover driven by a French farmer.

    The 49/56 is as close as I have gotten to owning one. Still a nice rifle if a bit heavy for it's size.

    You are obviously uneducated and know nothing about soldering or anything about units like Groupement Mobile No. 100. So I will forgive your ignorance. I stood at their monument in the An Kahe pass in 1968 where they didn't drop anything but their lives almost 80% KIA. It is more likely poor political leadership than Troop ability that cause poor moral than troop ability.

    Cheers and God bless and protect you.

    Fine rifles. My humble contribution to the purdy pictures.

    7.5 always surprises me in a number of ways when I shoot it.

    I really want a 49 to go with my 36. Well I also want a prewar 36 to go with my postwar 36.
