  • A new FN-49

    This is a Belgium Contract Crown over B/ABL/1952 receiver marked FN-49 chambered in .30-06. They are rare; even rarer are the ones with unscrubbed receivers. Most have had the Crown and other markings removed from the stock! Found it locally at the same gun shop where I got the Astra....

    I will strip it down after dinner and take some detailed photos - no markings on the stock whatsoever; looks to be refinished; mighty pretty wood though.

      Lucky you, I have a safe queen in 8mm that I haven't shot in years. I never did get all the cosmoline out if it. When I got mine years ago it was as bad as an SKS from China.
