Default FN Venezuelan 1930 Carbine

Sharing pics of my FN made carbine. Stock has been sanded and refinished. The metal has been refinished with a sort off "chrome" finish. Handy little carbine.

Nice carbine!! The Venezuelan 1930 rifles and carbines had their receivers and bolt parts left "in the white". Meaning not blued. They should have a dull satin finish. Your has simply been buffed to a high mirror finish, probably to remove the obvious corrosion.

The little carbines are much less common that the regular 1930 rifles.

Neat and handy carbines!!

It originally looked like this.

Default I love carbines as opposed to full length

I still find 30+ barrels on pre WW II rifles odd.

If your fall-back is relying on a bayonet charge, that extra barrel starts to make sense!

Your collection is just amazing. How did you end up with so many like new rifles? A lot of searching or did you have an in with one of the importers years ago?

Thanks.. I started collecting long before computers made it easy to find neat stuff. Basically it was a combination of lots of searching as well as networking with other collectors. I also did some consulting work for a few now extinct importers.

So basically I made a bunch of friends.

Back then some of the deals we made were amazing...


But your collection is also pretty amazing too!!

I'm in the process of doing a complete inventory.. I'm a few months in, and still have a way to go. I've rediscovered a number of rifles I had forgotten about.

In the days to come I plane on sharing pic's of some of them ...

Again thanks for the kind words.

Nice rifles!

I'm always on the look out for the Venezuelan target model 24/30.
