Not a huge addition for you today, but we do have two slightly different versions of the French 1974 MAS49/56 manual. The French have had a thriving experimental arms program for decades, and the MAS49 is one of the production rifles that came from it (see also, the MAS 1955 and MAS 62).
It was a very successful design, although about 15 years behind the times. It was equipped with a 10-round magazine, but had a good safety and good aperture sights. You can find the manuals and a link to a good collection of photos on the MAS 49 rifle page in the Vault (we’ll flesh that page out more in the future).
