They were called the T-48 I believe. Made by H&R They were in competition with what became the M-14. Saw some pictures of them a while back on here somewhere.

Springfield Armory also sold semi Imbel FAL's under their name as the "SAR-48" before the '89 ban.

IIRC the government Springfield Armory may have made a small number of T-48's before the H&R production run.

The springfield armoury FAL was made by Imbel in Brazil. It was called the SAR 48.

Do you mean Springfield Inc...the commercial producer of the M1A? Or the US Government Arsenal? I believe that Springfield Inc. imported an FAL licensed copy from Brazil...(Imbel maybe?)

The current commercial Springfield imported the SAR48. Not the old government Springfield.

SAinc imported FALs from Brasil. They were manufactured by IMBEL. Before 1989 they were marketed as SAR 48. After that year they were marketed as SAR4800

Springfield Armory inc also imported Israeli HB FALs. I had one. I regret selling it.

I have a Springfield SAR48, this rifle almost identical to the FN FAL, except that on the gas adjustment nut, there are no numbers, it is just plain black. You probably could change it to one, but what the heck it works okay, why mess with it?
