    My cat Mo aka Agent Orange modelled this rifle for your viewing pleasure. Can you name that model? Rifles like this make getting a C&R worthwhile.

    Looks French. Hard to tell my screen isn't big enough. But it couldn't be anything to be excited about cuz the cat's not excited.:rofl::rofl::rofl:
    No really it looks to me like an Italian or a French carbine from around WWII.

    Give Sharky a cigar. You would have seen these in the early days of Viet Nam. MAS 49/56. Great French carbine in 7.5mm. Came and went on the C&R market with a quickness. The French were very innovative when it came to weapons.

    Yeah, I meant to buy one back in the day 2000-2001 - they were CHEAP and other than a strange caliber - they were decent guns.

    Alas, I was 15 years old and working a part-time job making minimum wage and simply didn't have the cash......

    Too bad Century ruined a bunch of them converting (mostly poorly done) to 7.62x51. 7.5x55 isn't that strange a caliber, easily made by necking up 6.5x55 brass. I like mine, well designed, well balanced rifle.

    If it is French it has either never been issued or the drop marks are on the other side...
