    LUX FN49 Score

    Hi C&R Junkies, from another thread

    I was meeting a gentleman at a midway FFL, to transfer some SKS iron. Hadn't been to this shop since the plague made people crazy, but you know the drill, check out the inventory. The racks on the floor were pretty bare, no pistols in the glass cases, and the hundred station rack behind the counter, only had about 8 slots with rifles for sale.
    Among those in the rack was a .30-06 FN49. Immediately filed in my memory card.

    So after the 10 Kali cooling-off cycle, I go back to pick up a Cowboy Companion barreled receiver that I DROSed. I happened to mention to the owner that I had SKSs that I'd trade straight across for the FN49. What would it take? He knows I'm an SKS junkie/*****. Comes back saying 3 good ones would do it. "I'll be back" says I. The next day I show up with a Yugoicon M59/66 (neutered for Kali - Tapco muzzle device), a commercial NORINCO (non-milsurp), and a home grown Paratrooper (P50 front, Williams Fire sight, a short 14X1 threaded TriDelta brake) built from a CAI cracked stocked special. An "F" letter gun with matching metal bits.

    "WE GOT A DEAL" he says. The FN serial is 1271, pretty low number. Has a couple minor issues, but other wise seems decent. I'm stoked. I'm already working on a bayo deal.
    This will be my 3rd FN49. A garage sale Egyptian, and a 7MM Venezuelan as issued. PAX

    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.

    Love to see an FN49, picture heavy would do nicely...if you have time. When the wood's in good shape they can be stunning. I had an older well worn FN 49 in .30 cal decades ago, it had a couple issues and liked to double and go auto when it wanted. I had to replace a couple parts forthwith...
    Regards, Jim

    Anticipating photos as well. One of the last of the wood and steel generation of military rifles. Personally think they are beautiful rifles.

    Just picked up a Luxembourg and a Venezuela model myself. I’m in the middle of a move right now but if I’ve not started a thread in the next couple weeks, someone yell at me.

    They are indeed beautiful rifles. I think I’ll keep the Venezuelan.
