    Default MAS 36 Identification

    Hey guys, its been a while since I last posted on this forum. I just recently got a MAS 36, and I wanted to see what you guys thought about it. The serial number on the gun is 62660, with what I think is an M suffix. Its mostly matching, but that doesnt matter much cause I just wanted a shooter example.

    Ill have pictures posted bellow.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    It is part of the serial number. Looks like an N to me but I have always had difficulty reading the old French Script. M & N series are probably only separated a 3 months.

    Nice rifle. I've always liked the way these looked. Can't help with your question though.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Many people say they are ugly. I've always liked the way they look. Always wanted to pick one up. Just never a top priority...which means I never will probably get one.

    It is certainly an M and not an N. Take a look at this link.

    Here is a good discussion on the prefix letters. Sounds like the M prefix is somewhere from late 1944 to 1950.

    And here is a similar but slightly different quote from a different forum. Looks like the guy above copied it

    "Serial number prefixes F, G, H, J, K, and L up to 45XX were all pre-war made. In 1945, the French restarted where they left off in June of 1940 ... L4600, the rest of the L series were manufactured in either 1945 or 1946. M, N, P,and Q were finished off by 1950. "

    Alright, Thanks for the info. I would have to assume that its late to post war with its high serial numbers....
