That gun is worth more than 2500.

Just guessing, but it sounds like you have a (like?) new Belgian-made FN FAL - the real deal.

Pics. Would. Help.
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: what would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if during periods of mass arrests people had simply not sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, ham- mers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. . . . The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A. Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago

Take a look at the search for GunSouth FAL. Lots of posts there to help you answer your own questions.

This is s recent On-Line Auction of a GunSouth import showing what the value could be.

If you do in fact have a problem, you have the rest of your life to solve it. How long your life lasts only depends on how well you solve it.

BTW: razerwire There is a FN FAL you
can own living on california. its called the 50.63 para.. as it does not have "FN FAL or FN MATCH" on receiver as in the Roberti Roos law

Will give more info if your interested in knowing.
