Seems one of my Dads friends has a few of these for sale. He's wanting $400 for the best one, but said he would probably take less. According to my Dad the guns in really good shape. So, does that price sound about right? I've read these guns are often overlooked, and tend to be accurate and built pretty good.

a couple of years ago, they were selling for around $295???? or something like that.....I think. You might check gunbroker and see what the going rate is.

Just checked.... One listed for $249.00

I bought a Century Rework (to 7.62 NATO) that has performed perfectly. It came with Night sight, Bayonet and scabbard, firing pin pouch and accessories pouch as well as original leather sling. I think I paid about $300 for all of it, but that was about 1 1/2 or 2 years ago. I still think $400 is a little high for a 7.5 one without accessories.

The cheapest I have seen them was when SOG had them on sale for $199 about five years ago. That's not a bad price if you get one that doesn't slam-fire.

Rifleman--Same here. I've shot mostly Indian and some Santa Barbara. I had a few issues, but they were all the ammo's fault. I love it, and even though I have a FAL, I probably won't be replacing/selling the 49/56 any time soon.
