That 11.2x60 looks a bit shunned now, perhaps it would like to move to Australia?




if so you must take the 300 cases, 1000 bullets and the die set also

SN 917 in 7x54 rechambered by Fournier http://www.naturabuy.fr/mas-fournier-7X54-item-2815612.html










barrel is make in 1947 and looks like there is a 7x57 stamp on it. the receiver have a clean 7x54 marking so probably take over by Fournier in the white and than completed with the rechambered barrel

7x54 Fournier barrel for sale, again make in 1947 what supports my theory that the parts were made between 1946 and maybe 1948 and than rifles were build on demand just by using the barrel in the caliber ordered

my pleasure, nobody who had seen this became more stupid and I have learned about this just like you. all the gun nuts who had not known this rifle before understand now what it is.

when seeing the first 10,75x68 mas in the net I was need it

I knew of the Military 7.5mm MAS but never even gave sporting rifles built on the MAS a thought. That was daft of me really as I know the Sproting rilfes on British and American military rifles fairly well. It now seems that there is a chance we might even be coming to France.

this Mas have seen probably the chamber reamer three times. it looks like make as a 7x57 by MAS than rechambered by Fournier in 7x54, restamp as 7x54 on the left side of the receiver and than again rechambered probably by Sterna in 284 Winchester.
SN is not clear to see but looks like 200 -300

Thanks for posting Lancaster. I knew of the MAs but not much, after going through this thread I know a bit more. Wouldn't mind getting my hands on one.

The rear sight looks the same as found on the Brno Model 1

For a target rifle it is a fine action, potentially very accurate due it is said, to the horizontally locking lugs, but oh my, it is no Bugatti of the rifle world!

I've never owned one, but how is the bolt to manipulate and how much clearance is there between the thumb and a scope tube?

three different 7x54, clearly to see by the phosphated parts this are later made rifles having probably only a "JF ..." serial number
