I just got a FN carbine in .308/7.62 Nato, with 17.5" barrel, There are no markings on the receiver ring and only FN on the left side. It has serial numbers on the bolt and receiver only.
It has a ripple butt plate. Any idea who this was made for?

Thanks

If is show FN on the left side I would think FN made it Fabrique National Herstal Belgium.

Contacting FNH USA will be of absolutely NO use at all.

FN M1950 Gendarmerie Carbines, originally made in 30/06, mostly for Colombia (1950) but also an "Off the shelf" Item, which went to Morocco, firstly in 30/06, and then some late in the 1950s, in 7,62mm Nato cal ("NOT .308" which is a Civilian sporting cartridge).

Moroccan carbines have no markings except the FN Factory addy. and serial No, and usual Factory Inspection marks and Liege Proof House Marks.
Also sold "Off the shelf" to other small buyers in Middle East and Africa...The "Last Hurrah" of Military Bolt action Rifles.

I picked up a barreled action and its an FN and i was told here is a 1894 small ring in 308, converted of course. Would it be in 308 cetme?


Since bubba got to it before me i'm building it with a 7,62x39 chamber adapter so the grandson will have his first deer rifle.
