FN Para 50-61, sear cut

Value of 50-61 in very good condition? Very low round count, near new.

Wacky market, hard to call. Around here, $2800 - 3200 or so. On GB, who knows, might be one of those days when the brains are short and the cash is plentiful, could bring significantly more. Just don't count on it.

Agree 100%^^^^^^, esp regarding the Gunbroker bit.

From what I've seen recently, the value is tough to pin down. If it is a Steyr sear cut gun, it's 1 of 2000 rifles imported in that configuration, to my knowledge. I have seen ads for a sear cut 50.42, and a 50.00 priced $6,500-$6,995. The 50.42 sold, the other is still for sale. Also, I came across a Gunbroker record of a 50.00 that sold for $3,250 a few months ago. All those guns were in excellent condition. The newest ad for a 50.61 in that configuration, was 4yrs old, and the guy had $4,200 on the gun, no accessories, etc. Obviously, the price fluctuates based on who's interested, if someone just "has to have it", and numerous other factors. In other words, you don't know what a particular gun will sell for, until it sells.

The sear cut type 3s aren't amnesty rifles.It was a perfectly legit import, unlike the G series which were not until amnestied.

The amnestied G paras and FALOs are of course extremely scarce and bring WAY up into the 5 digit range on the rare occasion that one comes on the market. I'd love to own one, I'd be happy just to be able to afford one

I was the one that bought the 50.00 for $3,250 and it is near mint. Very happy with it and thought I got a pretty good deal overall.

Id say you did pretty well for a mint sear cut 50.00 as 50.00s have always tended to be more popular than the other models.
