I just want to get my rifle and see how it does, before I start accessorizing it.

I'm not sure I understand the question. The most wanted part is the one I need at the moment. Are you talking about what part or parts would be in the most demand if we could import them cheaply? You can never go wrong with para kits, barrels and handguards. A lot of the handguards we get here are pretty banged up, especially the non-bipod cut ones. Barrels are available but finding a supply of new or near new ones in the $75 to $100 range would sell well. DSA already sells STG barrels for $100 which are barely used.

auto sears? YES! i would like one of those! (a WORKING one of course)

Tapco sells auto sears on Ebay for like a dollar a piece. They do no good unless you are willing to mill out the receiver to accept them. They are just paperweights.

Its actually hard to predict what will really go fast. The market is changing so fast. Personally, I'd like a good source on new non-bipod cut handguards, but that is a part that is commonly replaced with US stuff to comply with the 89/90 ban. Still though, based on the condition of the handguards of the most recently available kits, there may be some interest.

Original STANAG scope mount top covers would sell like hot-cakes. You would have no competition.

New or like new Imbel barrels would be great and most likely sell if priced right. By right, I mean 10% or so less than whatever DSA is selling. Oh wait... you're in Argentina aren't you? A lot of those barrels are already here and selling cheap. The closed ear version may be good to import.

Small parts would also be good. Its getting harder and harder to find bolt hold opens the are not beat to crap and loose. Prices are also rising on them. Send a pile of those, new in wrap and sell them for $15 and you'd do well.

I'd love to see an ambi-safety if possible.

You would have to drill a hole through the opposite end of the receiver.

I would be wondering what the laws are in Argentina regarding the private ownership of firearms, including FAL's. If the government of Argentina has decided that it's citizens are not trustworthy enough to be armed and must rely on god only knows what type of government is down there then I want nothing from your country. If the exact is true, then export away. What exactly are the gun laws in Argentina?

I'm sure Hunter can tell us the specifics of gun laws in Argentina, but based on the video I saw of Hunter blazing away with his FAL, they can't be all bad. Besides that, I know Argentina is a hunter's heaven. I'm pretty sure Argentina is as free as you're going to find in South America, and probably a lot more free than most of Europe.

I think that is great for Argentina. I have been to Venezuela, it was beautiful. You are putting the idea in my head to visit!! I have to admit as a red blooded yank that I get a little dismayed seeing frrer countries than America. I dunno, maybe that's good old American ignorance at work or maybe it is just a reality check. Either way, hopefully that ridiculous ban will expire and we can get those para kits built!!!!

actually, i have an auto sear, i meant i want a working one, as in i want a FULL AUTO FAL.

what i would REALLY to see like though, is a lot more para kits come into the US. that would lower the price of them and keep the parts around for a while.

id also like to see a good supply of fal kits like maybe some from..... ARGENTINA?

Yeah, that could work just fine, given than argie FALs are top notch quality, Barrels (both light and heavy) are chrome linned bore and chamber and they are made using a process called cold hammered which makes them very good quality, as far as receivers, the finish on them is very durable as well for they are parkerized and painted with a hard mate paint on top of the park, very corrosion resistant.
Handguards are plastic, with bipod cuts.
Now i dont know about american laws but, but i bet there's gotta be something it can be done so these parts can be imported, i would look into it, just wouldn't know where to start. An american dealer would also be a good thing.

Oooohhhh. You've got heavy barrel variants? Now that is the kit or parts you need to send this way. If you're serious about this, you should talk to one of the companies who are already importing stuff. Dan's is a great place, although he is in the middle of a bunch of crap right not. Rav at www.twdsales.com is another one. He imported a bunch of South African kits a few years ago and is currently importing Imbel parts from Brazil. You can also talk to the guys at DSA.
Link Posted: 11/14/2003 10:26:39 AM EDT
hunter,
just curious. how much would a full auto FAL, or any other FA guns you may know prices of, be in argentina?
id imagine since there is no ban on MG's there it wouldnt be too bad (comparativly speaking, of course)

thanks

Really? I thought the safety went all the way through the receiver but didn't have a lever on the right side of the gun.

the selector side has a notch over the hole. thats what you'd have to dremel out.

OK, that makes more sense. I thought we were talking about the main bar of the safety. Thanks for clarifying.
