Price check on EJK Devco import

Looking at great condition EJK Devco Import , I believe its a Type III receiver, long brake, appears to have been very lightly used. I was wondering what a fair price would be on this rifle? It's not dual import marked, just EJK. Any info would be appreciated. SN is 2503xxx

You are correct, it is a Type III rec gun. In that condition Id say anywhere between $3-3.5k for a quick sale in this market.

I have never seen an EJK DEVCO in the 2503XXX range (or is it in the 25003XX range, which would be a Type 2 sear cut receiver)--- PM to you!!!

Judging by the side of the display Pappy is standing on, he is the prospective buyer.

Good luck man!

Congrats- looks like a great conditioned FN from an obscure importer.

Thank you,question, I would like to put wood furniture on this rifle, what do I need to look at? What stock type is on this rifle and any recommendations for a vendor? Suggestions? thoughts on putting wood on or leaving as is?

My thoughts.
You just paid allot of $$$ for a fairly rare collectable FAL.
I would not "dick with it".
If you want something to play w/ and shoot allot, buy another-DSA, SA SAR48 etc?

So, just changing the stocks out is that much of a issue? I understand the collectability aspect of the rifle for sure, I'm looking for something that's more pleasing to the eye, I have plenty of other black rifles to look at, just love the look of wood and steel.. I have not worked on the FAL platform , I have lots of experience with other platforms , is the issue that special tools are required to change stock out? Why is it such a issue, just curious.

I guess it all comes down to a matter of opinion. I'd go for it and don't see anything wrong with it as long as you keep the originals. You'll need a stock removal tool so the spring assembly doesn't go flying. Decent wood hand guards/pistol grip will be difficult to find these days, but like new Type C wood stocks do show up from time to time.

This seller has had a few lately...http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=421998

Thanks, I planned on keeping all the original parts, didn't know about the stock removal tool, so thank you, I see SARCO has them as well as Brownell's, is all the wood the same? Don't appear that a type C stock will work on this rifle , like I said just learning here and don't want to waste funds on something that will not adapt to this rifle.

Why do you think that? The FAL stocks are interchangeable. Just don't buy the L1A1 stock. It won't work.

The Type C stock in the above link is the exact stock you should go after. It already had the ferrule. Of course that one was sold a couple of months ago.

I hear you Tony, Ok so the ferrule I assume works with the wood stock? because not seeing one on my rifle that's why I ask. I may just leave it be and work an maybe a second one with wood furniture..

+1 for leaving it as-is. But it's your gun!

Rifle arrived yesterday and the condition is absolutely fantastic, numbers are matching, I have another that will arrive later this week with a great back story that you guys will appreciate. Thank you for your responses, and it will remain as it was imported, not changing anything to the rifle.

Great looking FAL, congrats. I would suggest reversing the Hinge Pin to save a little flesh and blood.

Be looking for your "story" rifle.
