'Navy Arms has secured the entire stock of decommissioned FRF2 sniper rifles from the French Government' ... No they did not get the entire stock, they only got some of them, there are some that are being sold in France as well, nice PR statement but not true.

I saw the serial number 26 sold earlier this AM. I meant to take a screen shot of the markings but OWS already took it off their site. There was an placard on the receiver just below nomenclature.

Here it is .
This was from the listing.
This is the lowest number we have encountered, 26, with no "FO" prefix seen on other guns. Bolt is marked "Cal 7.5, No. 26". These marking variations and low serial number indicate an early and unusual production/transition model. Gun is complete and in remarkably good condition.
