The Mas 49/56 rifle is an improved version of the original Mas 49 French rifle. The MAS-49/56 was introduced in 1957 and incorporated lessons learned from service in Algeria, Indochina, and the Suez Crisis. The rifle was shortened and lightened to improve mobility for mechanized and airborne troops, and a bayonet was added. The MAS-49 built-in rifle grenade launcher was replaced by a combination compensator/rifle grenade launcher that fired NATO-standard 22mm rifle grenades. The rifle also incorporates an integral grenade launching sight that is attached to the front sight block and a gas cutoff that prevents gas from entering the gas tube from the gas port when firing grenade launching blank ammunition. Chambered in the 7.5MM French (7.5 X 54) round. This is a very unique and collectible rifle. These have not been available for years. Don't miss this chance to add one to your collection. C&R Eligible

Brutus' Description

An improved version of the original Mas 49 called the MAS-49/56 was introduced in 1957 and incorporated lessons learned from service in Algeria, Indochina, and the Suez Crisis. The rifle was shortened and lightened to improve mobility for mechanized and airborne troops, and a bayonet was added. The MAS-49 built-in rifle grenade launcher was replaced by a combination compensator/grenade launcher that fired NATO-standard 22mm rifle grenades. The rifle also incorporates an integral grenade launching sight that is attached to the front sight block and a gas cutoff that prevents gas from entering the gas tube from the gas port when firing grenade launching blank ammunition.

Attempts were made to replace the MAS-49/56, but none were successful until 1978 and when it was replaced with the modern 5.56 NAto caliber FAMAS Bullpup rifle which is still in use today. The MAS-49/56 was withdrawn from service in 1990. Total production of rifles was 275,240 rifles issued between 1957 and 1978.

Back in the late '80s and very early 90's, we were able to obtain these rifles on occasion but supplies dried up and they have been largely gone for years.
Due to some special circumstances, we have a very limited quantity available now.

More about the rifle, although it was not imported by Century Arms, it did come to us through Century as part of a large purchase they recently obtained through a buy out of a now-defunct U.S. Distributor. This particular rifle is an X code graded rifle with the X standing for Excellent Surplus condition.

As such, knowing that it has been inspected for function and graded by Century already, we are selling it as is with no returns accepted for any reason. However, Century is offering a repair or replace warranty with a 30 day from receipt inspection period for the function of the rifle.
