    picked up a nice belgian fn49 battle rifle in 7x57r
    naval venezuelan contract sn. 7174. in the range of the last run of 8003.
    just tits with chromed out bore, sharp twist clean action, decent wood and great metal. i apreciate the fine well made belgian quality and the operation system of the rifle. still looking for the 15" bayo
    has all the venezuelan naval cartouches and crest on receiver and one marking i am unsure of what it is, it is next to the naval crest and looks like the letter e with a star above it and a line pointing to ranking stripes *E--->>>>
    not sure why my camera says jan o7 haha, has been stuck on that date for a long time and i cannot change it, although date is old rifle is new to me
    any help gents

    Hi chuck I as well own a SAFN 49 mine is a Belgium contract rifle in 3006 I am afraid I wont be much help with your Venezuelan contract rifle . I can tell you one thing for shur though I like it they are an amazing rifle and have seen action in such places as the Belgium Congo ,Egypt and Indonesia they kick like a mule but are a lot of fun to shoot .

    Regards Mark K
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Hi,I noticed in your first post you said the rifle was 7x57r,that is not correct as that would be a rimmed cartridge,yours will be 7x57 rimless,so don`t buy the wrong ammo.....Pete.
