Went to the gun show in Hamilton today. Didnt really see anything I couldnt live without, but I did find a rifle that I thought my buddy might like. I pointed it out to him, we checked values against what was on Gunbroker (yay wireless internet!) and, to my surprise, he bought it.
Here’s something you dont see everyday: Springfield Armory SAR-48 with the short barrel and para stock. For those of you too young to remember, Springfield Armory used to bring in FAL and HK91 guns ‘back in the day’. The SAR-48 was an Imbel FAL that was a very high quality build. They stopped bringing ‘em in back in ’89. This one is in minty mint condition with the sidefolder stock and short barrel. Price? Well, cheaper than if you got it from DSA…and at least $500 cheaper than the ones on Gunbroker.
I take joy in my buddy getting something he always wanted. I’m looking forward to getting to try it out.
