I saw one, swapped a couple of PMs and then said "I'll take it," then saw the second one, decided it might be a better deal and decided to commit to that one. Can't back out of an "I'll take it" once you say it so here I am with both. Now I just need to find a pair of L and R shoulder holsters for them. [smile]

Awesome.
I did almost the same thing with a pair of 220s last month.

May I suggest the Miami classic?

I'm pretty happy I stumbled on this one recently, even though I'm not huge into French guns (though they are starting to grow me quite a bit). It's a pre-war MAS 36 with all early features....something that's pretty uncommon in the world MAS 36s. Manufacture date of May, 1940 during the Nazi invasion of France and just before the Armistice. Everything is original (with a correct sling as far as I can tell) and it's in overall very good+ condition with a mint bore. Unfortunately the bolt mismatches, even though it was most likely made near the same time this rifle was (end of the 'H' block versus the start of the 'J' block).
