If you are asking about the Steyr StG-58 the answer is no.

There were also Steyr commercial rifles imported to the US. Not sure if any of those were 50.63.

DSA sourced parts from everywhere. They did have legit para barrels many years ago but I don't recall which contractor they were sourced from. Probably Imbel.

First, Steyr never made any para or folding stock FALs. Secondly, they never made any short or carbine barrels.

DSA

DSA purchased a bunch of Belgium 458mm Para Barrels from Argentina back around 1997 and was selling them back then. I bought 12 of them back then. They were Belgium made with Argentine proof stamps of acceptance on the barrel Flat. They bought all sorts of stuff from the Argentine's back in the day. My first DSA was a standard lower with a Argentine 436mm barrel. Still have it and it will hit a 6 inch gong at 200 yards.
