Egyptian trio...

came into the local shop. The of the nicest SAFN-49 Egyptian contracts I have seen. Has one of the hardwood butt stocks with the brass butt plate. SN# 18799 and it is matching numbers. I thought the bore was bad but two passes with a patch proved me wrong..nice and shiny! It is a Century St. Albans import but has the Egyptian crown crest on the receiver. SNagged.

The second is a Rasheed. Everything is original including those brass keeper wires on the screws. I thought the bore was iffy..which would not be the norm in my experience..but it had some cosmo residue and looks like new. Snag pending.

The third is a three digit SN# Hakim. Very good condition..stock is original finish and not dinged up. It is missing the bumper on the deflector. The bore surprised is like a mirror. Snag pending.

Nice Hakims are not on every corner. The ones that don't have beat up wood especially. I can see where the rasheed would be handy and popular. (They seem to be highly sought after.) I'm a big fan of the 8mm round because it is a effective and efficient cartridge that can do it all. Also the design of the hakim is a marvel to me and advanced for the time. Garands have a ton of moving parts in comparison. The swedes had a big hit with the Lungman IMO. Sunfish
FN-49 built for Egypt

I like the looks of these but know little about them. Do they shoot good??? Sunfish
