The MAS 36 was perhaps the most unusual looking standard issue rifle of WW II.
This was the French bolt action rifle for the WWII era. It has a peculiar design with the stock in two completely separate pieces separated by the steel receiver. It also has a peculiar forward angled bolt handle. Finally, the bayonet is a spike type that fits in a recess underneath the barrel.
This weapon was accurate and used by the French well into the 50s. it also served as the basis for the FR series sniper rifles.
