TODAY AT BLAYE -MAS 36

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

TODAY AT BLAYE -MAS 36

Postby DuncaninFrance » Sun Apr 01, 2007 5:50 am

Once a month we shoot from 160 mtrs and our Secretary was shooting his MAS 36 so I had an old digital camera in the car and took these. Sorry about the quality but when we bought the camera, Fuji MX-1700 it was quite a bit of kit.

There was also a MAS 49(?) semi-auto, but I was asked NOT to photograph it.

I would say military

Knowing our Sec, M.Jean Buffan, it will be original military, as are the pouches.

The semi auto was throwing spent cases every which way, up, forward, back!

I seem to remember that my SLR could put 20 empty cases in a beret almost!
