Dakota Bill, Just a senior moment or the onset of "OLD TIMER's" malfunctions. Hope you find the site useful.
thanx, i have overcome greater obtacles. one thing that still bothers me is my inability to find any info on mas shotguns. i know mas means the state armory in st ettienne, france. but thats as far as i get. france must not be computer literate yet.
oh well, someday.
Bill - There are/were three small-arms factories in France. St Etienne (MAS) - Tulle (MAT) - Chatellerault (MAC)
And the wording can be a pain in the butt also. Several versions -
Manufacture National D'Armes
Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Etienne
I don't know if strict adherence to the language is needed.
Apparantly these government factories also made sporting arms. They made a sporter from the French MAS Model 36. I didn't know they made shotguns also.

Have fun. If you open a door into France, let us know about it.
what i have is a model #26, 16 ga s/s. made in st ettienne. do you know anything about them? are they low/high grade etc.
i bought one at a local gunshow, 30 bucks. but it has some warts. bores are pitted and the bottom rib that holds the barrels together was separated. only about 3 inches though. the bad part is some moron tried to solder it with rosin core lead solder, which now lays in a puddle between the barrels. yuck. i remember my grandpa telling me that barrels were silver soldered. i have neither the tools nor the experience to accomplish such a task.
i was telling some friends about the gun and one of them told me to send it off to get repaired. so i'm going to. i just want an estimate on it before wor starts. i don't want to end up with a 600 dollar 100 dollar shotgun.
have you or someone you know owned one of these?
