    French MAS-36 that was captured at the Battle of Hue. This is one of the most battle damaged pieces I have in my collection. Notice all the shrapnel holes and actual bullets in the stock. Hue is carved in the stock.

    I'm sure it still does.....but don't want to try it. This rifle definitely has seen some heavy combat.

    Lucky chap, I always want to own Mas-36 because it seems to be fun to shoot. I dig short bolt-action rifle.
