French FR-F1 Sniper Rifle at the Range

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

The FR-F1 was adopted in 1967 as the French Army’s marksman or sniper’s rifle. It was based roughly on the MAS-36 bolt action system, but with a heavier receiver and 10-round detachable box magazine. It used the same scope as he MAS 49-56; the APX L806, a 3.85x optic largely modeled after the German ZF-4. I’m doing some shooting today with PPU 7.5mm ammunition, which is not particularly good – and the results show that. So, I after filming this video I shipped the rifle to my friends at 9 Hole Reviews for a proper test. Check out their video:
