FN MODEL 1949 SEMI AUTOMATIC RIFLE EGYPTIAN CONTRACT. SN 34074. Cal. 8 mm. This semi automatic FM 49 sniper rifle was most probably made for the Israeli hostilities that had dominated the second half of the 20th Century, this particular piece being on the Arab side of the action. It is fitted with a Mecopta 2.5 x 6 telescope. This rifle was built approximately 1955 and has the writing in both English and Egyptian or Arabic. It comes with the correct bayonet and scabbard and is in overall very good condition. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Receiver shows better than 95-98% of the original mat black finish. Bbl shows approximately 95% original enamel finish as does the gas check valve, front sight assembly and the front stock mounts. The middle band also shows better than 98% of original black enamel. The triggerguard and magazine assembly show 95-98% of black enamel with the clip latch being Parkerized and two small dents on the bottom of the magazine that do not effect performance at all. The correct bayonet and scabbard show better than 98% original finish with some very minor scarring to the wooden handle. Upper handguard and buttstock are in good condition but have numerous dings and dents throughout, with the added cheekpiece showing slightly lighter in color. The brass buttplate shows no wear or damage at all. The scope and mount show better than 90% of their original finish with the rubber eye piece and front scope cap soft and pliable and optics are crystal clear. Mechanics are very tight and crisp and bore shows bright and shiny. A very nice example of a FN49 sniper rifle. 4-34078 BK134 (2,500-3,500)
