New to RTI!

We now have beautifully restored MAS 49/56 rifles in stock!

These rifles have been completely disassembled, refinished, reassembled, and function tested. All stock hardware was refinished and properly installed. These rifles have brand new stocks that are an exact copy of the original stocks that were used on these guns from when they came out of the factory. Also features a brand new charging handles made to the exact specs of the original ones. The rifles are 100% restored and function checked (firing pin, safety, etc.), however, they have not been test fired. We do not guarantee any bore condition, bore condition may range from poor to excellent. Each rifle comes with one 10 round magazine. Rifles may have some very minor pitting in some small areas but are generally cosmetically fine, all wood parts are brand new. Please note: the bores on some of these rifles still need cleaning in some cases. There also may be some leftover oil or grime in small areas inside the action and/or in the gas tube. We recommend doing a brief field strip and wipe down of the internal parts before firing.

These rifles are historically significant and make a fine addition to any collection. These are military rifles which have served in France, across northern Africa, Ethiopia, and have finally made it to the U.S.!

Basic Info on the Rifles:

The Mas 49/56 rifle is an improved version of the original Mas 49 French rifle. The MAS-49/56 was introduced in 1957 and incorporated lessons learned from service in Algeria, Indochina, and the Suez Crisis. The rifle was shortened and lightened to improve mobility for mechanized and airborne troops. The MAS-49 built-in rifle grenade launcher was replaced by a combination compensator/rifle grenade launcher that fired NATO-standard 22mm rifle grenades. The rifle also incorporates an integral grenade launching sight that is attached to the front sight block and a gas cutoff that prevents gas from entering the gas tube from the gas port when firing grenade launching blank ammunition. Chambered in the 7.5MM French ( 7.5 X 54 ) round. This is a very unique and collectible rifle. These have not been available for years. Don't miss this chance to add one to your collection.

5 of 5 Very nice example of a Mas 49/56 September 23, 2022
Reviewer: Jeff Dukes from Athens, PA United States  
The rifle looks awesome! The stock looks awesome and the blues parts look great. Am glad I bought it. The only negative is that while the barrel has good landings, it is the dirtiest barrel I have ever seen, full of decades of  tan dust collected in North Africa. Spent over an hour running patches through it and still have a ways to go. Wish it had been cleaned during the restoration process.
