    Came home from a weird day at work...I love doing payroll....and found a box in the liveingroom...Wife said it came from SOG....Well I know I did not order anything and I doubted that they would send me free samples so I opened it...Seems wifee poo ordered me a French MAS 36 in .308....even picked up 40 rounds of ammo for it. See said I told her I wanted one a few months ago but did not know who sold them....said she seen it in the flyer so she ordered it.
    This has got to be one of the stranges rifles I have seen...but aside from looking diffent seems in grat shape...no cosmolin, bore looks nice,Wood looks good, bolt and rifle serial # match and the bayonet attaches and comes off as expected.

    Ok guess Ill have to cut back on the wife jokes for a wile...
    Does anyone know much about these things? I cant figure out how to open the magazine latch on the bottom or take the bolt apart to clean it. How are these things sapose to shoot?...guess Ill find out tommor how this does...but any thing I should know about..ie big problems?:D

    I am certain it wasn't originally a .308., it probably was rechambered with a chamber insert...If it is... watch your ejected casings to make sure the insert doesn't eject with an empty casing unknown to you making your rifle much more interesting in terms of chamber pressures, split casings, unsupported case necks, etc and all the interesting possibilities that they entail

    my wife actually bought for our 4th anniversary my mod 700 308 (with my father in law's help) she also got my 10/22 when my son was born 13 yrs ago. he shoots it now when we go to the range. matter of fact he shoots the .308 with 100 grain speer plinker reduced loads. She has "authorized" plenty since not to mention ammo, reloading stuff. not enough space to cover the bow and fishing poles. I'm pretty lucky when it comes to that. Think I'll hang on to her for a spell. :)
