What guns did the apes use in the original movie. I want to say they are modified French MAS-49's, but they still don't look right.

They were just M1 carbines with custom stocks to cover the mag and the barrel.

Bishop is correct.  They were M1 Carbines with "makeup".

Now I know where they came up with thumbhole stocks.
It will probably disapoint me, but I am looking forward to the new movie. I guess it will be more than a remake.
