OLD SPEC, SUEZ CAPTURE, Egyptian Contract, Belgian FN Model 49, Self Loading Rifle (SLR) With Bayonet & Scabbard. Sn 10170

The Fabrique Nationale Model 1949 (FN-49) is a semi-automatic rifle designed by Dieudonné Saive and manufactured in Belgium by Fabrique Nationale. It was produced between 1949—1961 and used by the Armed Forces of Argentina, Belgium, the Belgian Congo, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Luxembourg, and Venezuela. In 1948 Egypt ordered 17.600 FN-49's from Belgium and placed a second order for 20,000 in 1949. This is an excellent original old spec (1990) example of an Egyptian contract FN-49. The receiver ring is correctly stamped with a crown and crest with Arabic inscription which translates to 'Egyptian Army'. It also has the correct brass butt plate with trap and the stock is fitted with it's original Egyptian Army Unit marked brass disc which has a unique screw head with 2 holes intended to be engaged by a special 2 pronged screw driver/ spanner tool (see pages 75-76 of The FN-49 By Johnson). The left side of the frame is crisply stamped with the 'Fabrique Nationale Herstal D'Armes De Guerre Belgique' address and number '20348' together with Arabic script. This rifle would no doubt have been used by the Egyptians during the Suez crisis and captured during the conflict. It strips, cocks and dry fires perfectly and has all original wood and metal. The rifle is complete with and original correct knife bayonet with undamaged wood grips & steel scabbard. Price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery. Sn 8028
