    MAS 36 with armorer's tools(?)

    Picked up another really decent MAS 36 today, FP prefix (1950-1951?) nothing particularly unique about the rifle itself..however, it came with a packet of tools and an inspection card. I'm guessing these are Frenchicon armorer's tools, as I've never seen these included with a rifle. Took some pics here, hope they show up ok..didn't want to tear open the package yet (we all know how things get lost)
    Anyway, any insight into them would be appreciated...love these old French war horses!

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Sounds like it did a decent enough job:

    Nice example of the MAS 36 and even better with the tools, really rare example and expensive (sometimes faked too) is the CR 39. Same action as the MAS 36 but shorter barrel and
    folding stock

    Bonjour

    Cette pochette d'outils, n'est pas pour un Mas36, mais pour un FSA 49/56

    Cordialement

    They are nice handling rifles, and shoot pretty good when set up properly. The Garandicon and 03' junkies I talk to thumb their noses at these. I like mine a lot, and it shoots pretty good. It'll shoot even better once I finish shimming the forend to account for shrinkage over the years.
    I don't prefer the fixed/welded on, gargantuan obelisk front sight post, but it works well for a battle rifle inside 300 yards. I wish MAS would have come up with a better solution for rear the rear sight other than drilling apertures off center, but fortunately my rifle is pretty good - has a centered "N" aperture and shoots maybe 1/4 - 1/2 inches left at 100yds, which could just be me. I shoot perfect little 1.5inch groups off the bench indoors with a thin stripe of nail polish on the front post to compensate for this (trim a watercolor brush until only 1 thread is left, and borrowed my daughter's fluorescent pink nail polish.)

    I really like the color of the wood in yours. Mine is a dingy blonde, with a little red hue.

    I think mine except that huge site post with the small rear aperture makes it extremely difficult to use.
