Early Development of the MAC 1950 Pistol

All the best firearms history channels streaming to all major devices:

Today we have a short look at two of the predecessors of the French MAC 1950 service pistol. The first is the Type SE MAS 1948, which retains many of the characteristics of the previous MAS 1935 pistols. After that is a preproduction MAC 1950 (serial number F 20), which has the same style of safety catch as the pre-M1 MAS 1935, as well as early wooden grips. Then, of course, is the standard pattern of the normal MAC 1950.

Many thanks to the IRCGN (Institut de Recherche Criminelle de la Gendarmerie Nationale) for allowing me access to film this progression for you!
