WW2 & Suez Crisis Era French MAS-36 (Model 1936) 7.5×54mm Calibre Bolt Action Carbine/ Short Rifle With Concealed Removable Cruciform Bayonet & Sling**2011 UK DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 20031:3 - 20031:3
The MAS Modèle 36 was a military bolt action carbine sized rifle with 5 round internal clip fed box magazine. First adopted in 1936 by France and intended to replace the Berthier and Lebel series of service rifles, it saw service long past the World War II period. It was manufactured by Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS), one of several Government owned arms factories in France. Because production started late in 1937, not enough MAS-36 rifles were available to arm the French infantry when the war broke out in September 1939. Mass production finally caught up after World War II and MAS-36 rifles became widely used in service during the First Indochina War, the Algerian War and the Suez Crisis. Production ceased in 1952. This is an original French M-36 rifle. The rifle measures 40 ½” overall with a 23" barrel. It has all original wood and metal work. The wood has just the bumps and bruises to be expected. It has a hinged forward sling ring and the stock is fitted with sling bar fitted with period leather sling. It has a steel butt plate, shrouded fore sight and adjustable rear sight. The rifle has the correct removable cruciform bayonet concealed under the muzzle. The bayonet is removed for use by depression of a lever on the blade shank. The bayonet is then slotted into the vacant bayonet hole and retained in place by a sprung clip. To remove the bayonet from the rifle a second lever on the shank is depressed. The action, trigger guard and wood have matching numbers 55616. There are also there are also other un-matching numbers. The action is also stamped 'MAS Mle 1936'. Deactivated to UK specification in 2011 the rifle cocks and dry fires crisply.

**SOLD**3/10**BOER WAR ERA**British WD Lee Speed Patent BSA & M Co (Lee Enfield MK 1).303 Calibre Rifle Magazine Cut Off, Long Range Volley Sights & Sling**UK / EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 19367 - 19367
The Lee-Enfield .303 MK 1 was introduced into the British Army in 1895 and in Canada the year following. It replaced the Lee-Metford, which had been the standard issue firearm since 1889. The latter was a magazine-fed repeating rifle, but it fired cartridges using black powder which emitted smoke when fired that gave away the rifleman's position. In 1891, the British first produced cordite a propellant that burned cleanly without emitting smoke. It also generated more heat, however, which wore out the Lee-Metford's rifling system of seven shallow grooves. A new rifling system was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield, consisting of five deep grooves that could withstand the intense heat generated by the cordite. The result was the .303 Lee-Enfield MK 1 rifle, in all respects identical to the Lee-Metford except for the rifling. The new rifle saw service in the Boer wars and beyond. This is an excellent .303 calibre Lee Enfield MK 1 bolt action rifle by BSA & M Co. It is crisply stamped on the right side of the strap ‘Lee Speed Patents BSA & M Co’. The rifle is number 8231 and has British WD ordnance mark together with ‘FF787’. The top of the barrel shank has BSA’s piled arms trade mark. It has a winged blade fore sight, long range volley sights, graduated ladder sight, bayonet bar, sling swivels fitted with webbing sling & magazine cut off (fixed in place during the deactivation process). The wood work is all original and in excellent condition with just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The stock has a brass butt plate with trap. Deactivated to UK / EU specification in 2022 the weapon’s bolt & trigger move & the magazine can be removed. The price includes UK delivery and UK / EU deactivation certificate. Sn 19367
