Thank you very much Lancaster for this additional information; only one point to clarify: .308 is now "almost free" to own in France (admin request only for presenting either valid hunting or shooting license) when purchasing.

None here either and I have never seen a French MAS sporter in the flesh in my life. Have seen the military setups Back East. I fiddled around with one once and found it to be a very interesting rifle, tho the military buttstock was so short it felt like it was cut for a Munchkin.

still have the sights and the muzzle brake for an 8 x60S hunting rifle, will work for an .30 caliber barrel too. if you find a butchered sporter that can be change into something good...

first time I stumble about was the 10,75x68 rifle of a vietnam vet that was bought in vietnam from a french farmer were it worked as a tiger gun than. this rifle was allmost unknown in the shooting world before until I start to made this thread.
so, yes, I discover this.

I always find Finnish "Bubbas" interesting as they are often so much like our own.

in the old west this were two too many https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XkHsinz7oU




no doubt, a man with two white spacer on the gun is the local hunting chief, with 3 white spacer your are the county hunting chief.
3 white spacer make you the state hunting chief and with 4 your are the top of the union.
this is very similar in japan with different colours but they have one rank more called the "mikado"
