Gentlemen...Luxembourg FN49 & Friends

Post by echo1 »

Hi Fellas,

Just picked up a Lux FN49 that I traded 3 SKSs for. It's in decent shape and on the rack with an SVT, 7mm Venezuelan FN49, 8mm Egyptian FN, and a Winchester Garand. I'm a happy camper. PAX

Nice! I'd trade 3 SKS's for a Lux 49 any day! But I don't have 3 SKS's so that's a moot point.

Great addition and really nice furniture. :handgestures-thumbup:

The stock on my Egyptian has seen some very hard times.

Thanks NM. My Egyptian is an all mismatched yard sale find. The stock has some issues too, but led me down the FN rabbit hole. PAX

Since December I moved 10 SKSs to 3 guys. 2 got 3, one got 4 including an Albanian. That thinned my pile of SKSs down to 29 keepers. PAX

Good deal!

It is really a shame that all those SKS's we bought for $50-$75 buck each in the early 2000's are worth so much now.
Aint nothing you cant fix with five gallons of diesel and a match.
