Just listed is a Belgian para fal Gunsouth import with a start bid of 2400.00 and buy it now for 2700.00. Does not have the original dust cover. I am not too familiar with these, but looks like a deal? Seller has 1900 feedback. Have the money, but looking to get a match 50 for my first Belgian. Sorry, computer dummy here, so no link.
Sorry, Howco Import.

That is a VERY respectable price for that rifle. If I didn't have my funny money tied up in an LT1 engine destined to be dropped into my '85 C10, I'd snag it up!

That would be me. I just can't pass on a HOWCO. My wife is remodeling the bathroom with a chandelier over the new fiberglass claw foot tub.... So I figured I owed this to myself.

So, did I make a mistake not buying it. Just purchased two rifals and have a G1 and Izzy HB at a Falsmith being put together now.

Sorry, Howco Import.
You should have grabbed the Howco it's definitely worth more than a 50.00 match and especially at that price although I don/t know the condition of the Howco.
Congrats Dave how many Howco's are you up too now. Maybe a bakers dozen. :D

Got it today. Here is the review.
Low round count, I would guess a couple few boxes of ammo may have been shot through this one.
Excellent condition EXCEPT under the QD bipod. :(

SAFN- weren't you trying to sell one of these not too long ago?

Yes :sad: This is at least my 5th or 6th one. I keep buying them and then selling some of them. I always have at least one on hand. I just can't pass up a Howco, or a FR8. So I'm down to just 2 Howco's now. I won't buy anymore, unless I sell one, then I'll need another one.......

Understand completely SAFN- some guns are hard to pass up even when you have duplicates.
