FN-49's

Playing with the new Camera- Took some pics of the Fn-49;s

Top one is 30.06
middle 7MM
Bottom 8MM
I dont think the aught 6 has been fired =BUT alas The stock and action numbers dont Match -But It sure is clean!

I did swap top wood between the 06 and the 8MM as you can see its like they were supposed to be that way

Do you really wanna know? haha

somewhere between $1400 and $2000 seems average, but ive seen them go for even more at auctions. Took me MONTHS to find one and some folks have spent years...........seems folks dont want to let them go.

USMA-82....want to give an estimate of what yours was and when you got it......inflation impacts im sure

Purchased mine on Gunbroker - April 4, 2010. It did not have a magazine, but fortunately an online vendor was selling them for $35 each at the time.

Price for the Rifle: $509

Here's my post on the local forum shortly after I got it:

Enjoy!

HUMmm--- Ok I figured they were -UP -there,,
Im actually an Opportunity collector ,,I buy something if it is a nice piece and priced right . Thinking I paid like $350 for the 8mm and 250% for the 7 and 450$ for the 06

EDIT--were the 308's /7.62x51 rifles made as such -OR were they retrofits from something else..Im thinking they stopped making FN-49's before they developed 7.62 ammo???????????

You are correct - they were retrofit. See my link above.

But not sloppy retrofits, new barrels and other small parts if I remember correctly.

USMA you did great at that price........sometimes great deals pop up like that. Im in mine for about $940. Mines got some importer chickenscratch on the muzzle end of the barrel "NCO" or something. Its only paint deep.......which tells me they either appreciated not greatly defacing the rifle or were just really lazy that day.

Good luck with that! My understanding is that they were almost COMPLETELY converted to 7.62 NATO. you might find a 7.65 Argentine model in a museum somewhere, but not in the open market.
