Ohhh I know that, but I think it is ridiculous that they can slam these nonsense regulations on semi-autos (new or C&R), but they never did it to bolts or single shots. Only because semi-automatics are "assault rifles" with these features. Politcians and their idiotic laws are a detriment to our rights.

Check out this link for a good discussion on the MAS 49/56 muzzle brake/flash hider. He does post the muzzle threading specs:

http://forums.gunboards.com/showthre...75#post1641875

If anyone ever comes up with a muzzle brake/comp solution. Or, if someone finds a place that will make a custom one (at a reasonable price)... I'd be interested.

I keep meaning to try some sort of Mosin bolt on brake, something that fits properly, will look correct & prevent GL use but haven't quite gotten around to it.

Does anyone know the muzzle threading specs of the MAS 49/56?

Thanks - same here, I'd buy one. IIRC there was a MAS 49/56 "Type 2 brake" with a closed end typical of what is viewed as a brake. They're evidently hard to find.

I remember reading a quote by Eisenhower which underscored the high value he put on Free French forces, but for the life of me I can't find it. It was something like, "I'd rather have one Free French Battalion than an American Division." Or "One French battalion is worth ..." Anyway, it was positive.

Oh, back on topic. I have one that's Cali legal. Had to talk them them through removing the FH & ranging ring. Simple really. Worth it. Great handling rifle. I was thinking of welding a washer to the front of the FH to make it back into a brake. I think it will fly if the exit diameter is closer to the original configuration.

BTW, if the 1% rule is the true legal standard of a FH, then most brakes would probably test illegal.

anti french sentiment reached its fever pitch when the french wouldn't follow us into Iraq a second time (after contributing an armored division first time around) and this rekindled all this anti french sentiment which started with the US frustration with Degaulle and continued on throughout the cold war because the French wouldn't fall in line with the rest of Western Europe with Washington's demands.

Being frustrated with post war french foreign policy with the US is one thing, but perverting French military history to serve a contemporary political agenda is just flat out wrong.

The French literally bled to death in ww1 rather than surrender.
The French didn't "surrender" in 1940, they had their asses kicked by a foe which had better tactics. They got beat, they weren't cowards. Indeed, the Dutch, Norwegians, Danish, Yugoslavs and every other country that faced the Wehrmacht in 1940 got beat too, including the Brits; they just were lucky enough to not have a land bridge connecting them to the continent, or 3000 miles and 4million soldiers to learn from their own mistakes like the Soviets did.

The French in Algeria were on a fools errand, same as in Vietnam, same as WE were in Vietnam: trying to solve a political problem with the military.

So yeah, friends and fellow shooters, STFU with tired french cliches it just makes you look like you haven't read enough history.

read these books:
alistair horne's "The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916"
alistair horne's "to lose a battle, france 1940"
alistair hornes "a savage war of peace" about the algerian war
and "the last valley: dien bien phu and the french defeat in vietnam"

and then, well, if after reading those books you still think an old and busted cliche is funny, well, read em again.

So, you are simply a bigot and not a ignorant bigot. Thank you for the clarification!

Back on topic. . . .

I know that an incomplete rifle can still be C&R, although not a bare receiver, so why would removing the grenade launcher make this rifle not qualify. It's one thing to restock and chop a barrel, but why does a missing grenade launcher make it not eligible?

The ATF has decided that only limited modifications to a curio or relic firearm is allowed without that weapon losing its C&R status. With few exceptions, however, ATF has always been kind of vague on what specific modifications are and are not allowed.

Unless someone has an opinion letter from the ATF regarding a grenade launcherless MAS 49/56 no longer being a C&R, then you will be operating in a gray area if you have it shipped to you as a C&R.

That being said, do you want to be a test case for this issue?

If it isn't a C&R any longer, have it sent through a regular 01FFL...
