Went to the fun store to browse and spotted a FAL that they had just acquired. It turned out to be a Belgian imported by Steyr. Flipped it over and it had the sear cut. After some research, it appears to be one of the 2000 or so that were imported in the early '70s that was approved by the ATF. Should I have bought it?

Depends, what was the price?

More importantly , does the Store know what they got?

I could not pass it up:

Thats a very nice rifle. It appears to be the standard Steyr import FAL. I am unsure how you could see the sear cut from "flipping it over" but that rifle was imported most likely in the 80's, AFAIK. The sear cut rifles were FN marked and imported much, much earlier. Some of the Steyr imports I have seen are sear cut, most are not.

Your rifle I think is a cast upper very late production rifle. A very nice FAL. I'd be interested in learning the exact dtae of import.

2,400 OTD.

OK, Now how much will the auto sear cost.
I know,after the $200.00 tax stamp.

The auto sear will cost you up to ten years at a Club Fed. Before install you would also have to swap out the ejector block. Tampering with the ejector block pins on that rifle could make it a MG in the eyes of the alphabet boys.
Sweet rifle BTW.

I have no aspirations for full auto. Or being a guest at the gray-bar hotel.

I said after the $200.00 tax stamp. Are their regestered auto saftey/sear parts out on the market?
