FN Para Import ?

If one were cruising for a FN PARA import, which of the three are more desirable in most opinions? Steyr, Howco or Gun South? I know these are all type III receivers. Are numbers know on each? Anyone Care?

Should I just ultimately just hold out for a type II Rogak?

Other information welcomed...

One isn’t necessarily more desirable as far as importers are concerned. A sear cut will bring a slight premium and if its a seat cut para it will be a Steyr. A Howco is going to be a 50.63 para so that automatically adds a bit more value with the shorter bbl.

AGG would be the one to weigh in with the #’s. I seem to recall between 1300-1400 50.63s.
