Argentine FN49 Value?

A friend of mine is looking to sell his Argentine .308 FN49. It is in VG condition, with several spare original mags.

What would be a fair price for this rig?

Thanks!

I've seen nice examples lately in excess of $1200 for the Argy 308 version. There's a very nice on gunboards right now, I'll see if I can find a link.

I'd be surprised if you could get $800 for one today in EXC condition.

There just aren't that many people buying and prices have dropped 25-30% or more over a few years ago.

I bought one new about 15 years ago for $700. Sold it I think around 5 years ago for $1000. I suspect it would go for less today. But add $50 for each 20 rd mag.
