FN 49 AL Sniper with ABL scope and ECHO mount - RARE!!
A very scarce FN 49 Luxembourg AL sniper rifle, one of the first, with a Belgian Army A.B.L. scope/sunshade, and ECHO mount. SN: 7068. Cal: .30-06. Only 203 Luxemburg sniper rifles were made by FN. These are all found in the serial range: 7001-7203 , fitted with ECHO mount, and special stock having a detachable universal cheekpiece. As per most FN 49 rifles, virtually all metal parts were finished with a black enamel paint. The ECHO mount is matte finished blue. The gun is fitted with a blued, first variation Belgium Army scope with elevated turrets, numbered 458, having a reticule with a central pointed post and two fine horizontal hairs. Attached to the body is an unmarked front lens shade. Optics protected by original leather caps. Buttplate has a hinged door for storage of cleaning components. Original sling. Condition: Near excellent overall with painted surfaces retaining approximately 90-95% of the original black enamel. Comparable condition scope, usual mismatch, and wood furniture that has a scattering of dings but no evidence of touchup or refinish. Crystal clear optics! Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. Although this rifle has seen some service use its condition and configuration befits inclusion in any military rifle/sniper rifle collection. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
