    Default Belgian M.1935 FN 1940

    Been looking for one of these in nice matching shape for a long time. Mint bore, unmessed with, most all original enamel finish present.

    Note: Nope, there is no Howards on the stock. Stock doesn't need cleaning or conservation. That is the original factory flaxseed protective coat, and some of it looks shinier as I've wiped the metal with Ballistol.

    Great rifle Craig happy you found it! Goes well with your M1889/36 rifle you have.

    Nice. Belgian rifles in acceptable condition are few and far between.

    Question: has anyone ever seen an M1935 with a modified bayonet lug? I've seen modified 89/36, but never a 1935.

    Very nice rifle. Did FN install they recoil lugs facing the other direction? I've never noticed that before.

    Thanks guys. I paid for it, but another like this may not turn up for me anytime soon.

    Good eye Nirvana. Spanner nuts on both sides with this design.

    Craig Brown had one, and it was listed among Amoskeag's offerings.

    The post war FN "1950" also features the spanner nut on both ends of the recoil bolt.
