    Israeli 98k FN 22/ MAS 45 22

    Besides Numrich, who else has FN 98k 22 factory parts?
    Anyone know of anyone who has MAS 45 factory parts?
    I got a very nice MAS 45 walnut sporter stock a few years ago, made in America.
    Anyone know if stocks are still being made?
    I have done minor restorations on FN 98k 22's, mostly because the guns I got were mint in oil soaked stocks and needed bolt head parts.
    When they only made 2000 for Israel and 1000 of them were sent to South Africa as military Aid.
    It kind of limits the amount of parts to draw from.
    But, new Israeli wood and metal , add bolt parts, basically a new rifle each time

    Some time ago I saw a picture of an FN22 that had thereceiver rollmarked with a crest of the Congo I believe. Wishing I had downloaded the pics now.

    My understanding is that it was done around the same time as when they received them
    So, that would be in the early 1950's. I have number 1994.
    So it wasnt done by lot, it was just divided and shipped.
    No one even writes anything about them , other than that they exist because people have them
    I am certain that most of them in America came from the small amount that came to Canadaicon
    I lost my list with the numbers. You also have to consider the guns that were broken up for parts by Numrich. 2000 guns isn't that many when you consider the time frame for them to disappear into
    scrape bins. Single shot 22's are not something that get saved
    Not much new wood, so the un marked 308 wood was used on some of them.
    So, I did the same thing, as the guns were in mint original condition needing bolt head parts in some cases and new stock metal.

    I looked again, I have 1997 and 1998. So that's the proof that there was 2000
    Anyone have a higher number?

    My IDF .22 Sn is 1806. It would be nice if there was some kind of registry of all the serials and rollmarks. I.m sure there is a back story to all of the FN 22s.
