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 an A.B.L. scope/sunshade, and ECHO mount. SN: 7005. 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 308, having a reticule with a central pointed post and two fine horizontal hairs. Attached to the body is a rubber eye cup and an unmarked front lens shade. Buttplate has a hinged door for storage of cleaning components. Condition: Near excellent overall with painted surfaces retaining approximately 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 is entirely original, befitting inclusion in any military rifle/sniper rifle collection. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
