    After today, it's all historical.

    I've got the Egyptian contract version that fires 8 mm. Haven't fired it yet, but will, eventually, get around to it. It's a beautiful-looking rifle and very robust and well made.

    The only shortcoming I see with it is that it has a fixed magazine. A removable one would be more preferred. (A magazine setup like the one on British Enfields would be nice; you can switch out the mags or just use a stripper clip and load the mag that way.)

    Always wanted one. They were fairly cheap. Never got one
