People are trying to get out of guns they overpaid-for last year.

Only way that happens without a loss is to hold them until the next cycle.

It appears to have a stripper clip top cover. It would be interesting to see what else may have been changed.

It's been on gunbroker for a while. I believe the rifle' s type 1 cut has been discussed on FALfiles in the past.

That's not a Type I. More like a Type III with a couple Type I cuts added.

I would much rather have the rifle than any DSA usa made. I would think it carries 25-35% more value than the DSA alike.

Donut, you need to get this 1st one up and running. But good idea to get advice here before making another purchase. That rifle has been screwed with the camo job. Nowhere worth what is being asked.

Doing much business as a FFL with Springfield Armory in the 198O's and 1990's, they never imported a semi-auto Type 1 receiver on their SAR48 or 4800. Most likely it was an after market project to cut the receiver. Also there are no Type 1 cuts on the magazine well.

DSA Type 1 cuts on an Argentine receiver.

The ad is not incorrect as it is a pre-ban imported SAR48 on a Type 1 IMBEL receiver, however it was not imported in that configuration.

Misleading perhaps but not dishonest. $1400.

It's not worth what they're asking. Knock off about $700 and they're in the ballpark.
