Well i do have a question for you. Wich caliber do you think suits the fn-49 best. My favorite overal caliber is 7x57 so i wonder about that, though i havent shot it on a fn-49. But the fn-49 off my father is in 30-06 wich is a real kicker.

The FN-49 IMO is the best .30-06 semi, however I've never shot a Johnson, HCAR, or the new .30-06 AR Platform, the best 8mm Mauser Semi, again never fired a FG-42, and is the only 7mm Mauser Semi I am aware of. Of the 3 calibers I give a slight edge to the 7mm Mauser in the FN-49 it is extremely accurate and is a pleasure to shoot. However all 3 are great.

Back in 1994 I ordered two of the Egyptians in 8mm Mauser, one for me and one for my brother. I got a notice a week later that they where out of stock, I never ended up getting one but sure wished that one in '94 would have materialized. It likely would have gotten me onto milsurps quicker and I could have bought more when they were cheaper.

Thanks for the picture of your wonderful collection.

I ended up with an extra matching 7mm Venezuelan High Number if anyone wants to buy one to find out how nice one shoots Image

I sure hope you are able to get that nice collection of FN49's out of the state of NJ before they come and take them away and chop them up for scrap.
