7/15/21 - This is a minty example of a MAS Model 1936 rifle. First adopted in 1936 by France and intended to replace the Berthier and Lebel series of service rifles, it saw service long past the World War II period. It was manufactured from late 1937 onward by Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS), one of several government-owned arms factories in France. Only 250,000 MAS-36 rifles were available to equip the French infantry during the Battle of France in 1940. Mass production finally caught up after World War II and MAS-36 rifles became widely used in service during the First Indochina War, the Algerian War and the Suez Crisis. This example is all matching except for the bolt, though the bolt is an early example. Excellent finish all around with minor wear on the bands. Strong, shiny bore. Excellent stock with only a few dings/nicks. Comes with an original sling.
