I just picked this beast up. Venezuelan in 7x57mm. 3900 serial number range. Mirror bore. Shoots very nicely! I just thought I'd share and wonder what you guys think of the FN49 and how important this rifle is to the history of the FAL and battle rifles in general.

Nice example. That wood looks very blonde. Could be the sun?

First contract Venezuelan Rifles have some unique features. The one piece hand guard being one. I always thought that was cool. Also, the stock, if original will have no markings at all.
