Rome, the only 7.62x51 converted Mas 49/56 I have seen fired at a range had a problem with slamfiring. That is, its owner loaded two rounds in the magazine (luckily only 2), squeezed the trigger, and both rounds fired. He was using CAVIM 7.62x51 ammo, because his dealer told him to use ammo with a hard primer, and the CAVIM had hard primers. I do not know the resolution of this, since this was a chance meeting at the range, and I have not seen him since. But be careful. Think twice about filling the magazine the first time, maybe load one, shoot it, then load two, and so on.
