History

World War I convinced the French military that the 8mm Lebel cartridge needed to be replaced. Many choices were tested, with the final choice being the 7.5 x 54mm MAS round. This testing process and entirely new rifle design meant that the fusil MAS 36 was the last bolt action rifle adopted by a major army anywhere in the world. Its receiver was based around a much-modified and shortened Mauser bolt action. It was regarded as an ugly and clumsy weapon, however, it could stand up to virtually any sort of abuse known to man, from surviving explosions to being used as an improvised tool.
