Fn 49 6.5 x 55

Are you talking about the one listed on Proxibid?

I almost bid on that one until I did my homework and common sense kicked in. I seriously doubt it was an original 6.5x55 and based on the sale price I don't think anyone else believed it was the real deal either. Only 5 - 6.5x55's were ever made and they were all delivered to the Swiss so they would most likely be in much better shape then the one listed which was in so so condition with only 50% black paint and 80% finish left. My guess is it's a 7mm Venezuelan.

BTW, the same company also auctioned lot # 227 which they claimed was a genuine Smith & Wesson Model-13 Aircrewman. A real S&W M-13 Aircrewman would sell for $4000-5000. Their gun only sold for $705.00.

Think about it, what are the chances a company would be auctioning 2 holy grails in one auction with no reserves on either.
