Manufactured in Saint Etienne for Century Arms of St. Albans, Vermont, this is a semi-automatic version of the standard French infantry rifle from 1978 to 2016. Built around 'bullpup' design principles and making active use of composites and alloys, the FAMAS (Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint Etienne, Assault Rifle made by MAS) was one of the most distinctive rifles of the Cold War. A limited number were manufactured in semi-auto configuration for the American market in the 1980s, though with limited success. Adjustable blade front and peep rear sights with flip-up night sights, bird cage flash hider, integral carry handle and bipod legs, reversible cheek piece and a rubberized buttplate. Two magazines are included, as is a green canvas sling; please note that this model uses a proprietary magazine that resembles but is not compatible or interchangeable with the NATO "STANAG" 223/5.56 magazine.
