    ~ The MAS rifle ~

    The MAS Modèle 36 was a military bolt action rifle. First adopted in 1936 by France and intended to replace theBerthier 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 was initiated late in 1937, not enough MAS-36 rifles were available to arm 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. Altogether, about 1.1 million MAS-36 rifles had been manufactured when production ceased in 1952.

    The MAS-36 carried a 17-inch spike bayonet, reversed in a tube below the barrel. To use the bayonet, a spring plunger was pressed to release the bayonet. It was then free to be pulled out, turned around, and fitted back into its receptacle.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The length of the bayonet is 17 inches (43.3 cm). It weighs 150 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The bayonet is in good used condition with slight traces of rust on the handle.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
