Refurbished sometime after the Second World War, this rifle has the remains of its original factory wrapping and grease. The rifle is in near new condition, with extremely minor marks to the wood and metalwork only.

Adopted by France in 1936, the MAS Modele 36 was intended to replace the aged Berthier and Lebel rifles. Budget constraints limited MAS-36 production, and during the Second World War it was used beside earlier rifles in many French army and colonial units. The MAS-36 was used extensively by the French Army, as well as colonial forces, during France's postwar operations in the First Indochina War, Algerian War, as well as in the Suez Crisis. It remained in service during the early 1960s, particularly with indigenous colonial units. It was officially a substitute-standard rifle after France adopted the semi-automatic MAS-49 rifle series in 1949, though its bolt design is used in the dedicated sniper version of the rifle, the FR F1 (now chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO) and its successor the FR F2 sniper rifle.
