I have not seen any of those in quite a while. The last batch that I know of were Egyptian's in 8mm about 15+ years ago.

Check the auction/sales sites like www.gunbroker.com, www.auctionarms.com, and www.gunsamerica.com...

I saw a few recently in both .30-06 and 8mm with prices between $700-1k....

Happy hunting.

As mention you'll have to keep looking. I used to have a Venezuelian model in 7x57mm and sold it when I need money long ago (they only made 8012 for Venezuela). Other chamberings were 7.62x63mm, 7.62x51mm, 7.92x57mm and 7.65x53mm. And at least five in 6.5x55mm for testing in Sweden, one in caliber 7.5x54mm French for testing in Syria,

about 4-5 years ago SOG brought in a bunch from south america in 7.62x51. SARCO had a ton of the mags....were labeled as slightly dented.

Currently, SOG is listing only 'gunsmith' specials that are missing mags and bolts and possibly some damage for $750 which is too much for an incomplete rifle IMO....

thanks for the good info, interesting rifle, I will just have to keep my eye out for one, but doesn't look to promising, then again when ever you stop looking for something is when you always find it.
