Where's a good place to get a FN-49 in 8mm? Does anybody have the barreled receivers or is it mostly luck of the draw to find one at a gun show or on the auction sites?
You're pretty much just luck of the draw finding one. Seems like every few years a few will trickle in from some part of the world, but there's usually not many and they usually don't last long. Last ones I remember seeing in any quantity were some Argentine Navies in .308 that SOG had a few years ago. Egyptian 8mm's seem to be the most common followed by 30-06's (usually Luxembourg) with .308's and 7mm tied in distant third and Argentine 7.65 Mausers in very distant fourth.
