MAS MODEL 1949 7.5x54

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: A-
The 1949 MAS was longer than the 49-56, with a 23-inch barrel. This reconditioned rifle shot very well despite a really bad trigger. All the parts of the gun looked great, with fresh Parkerizing and a very decent barrel.

The Model 1949 MAS had a bare tube at the front. The protruding rod is for stacking the rifles in camp.
The screw at the top of the aperture shroud is actually part of the aperture itself. Each half-turn of the screw raises or lowers the aperture, permitting the coordination of the impact with the tangent sight, which runs from 200 to 1200 yards. There is also a screw for windage, and the calibration "0" for that adjustment is to the left of the aperture shroud.
This slotted screw allows removal of the trigger group. Be sure the hammer is cocked before removing the screw. There's also a spring detent to help keep the screw tight.
This shows the cut in the side of the action for the magazine. Larger-capacity magazines have been made, but in the brief time we spent looking, we could not find a source for them. Magazines for the 7.5 and the 7.62 interchanged.
