Alrighty. I got a look and had some play time on the two Argentine FALs at one of the local shops. One had different numbers on teh upper & lower, and the muzzle brake / flash hider was removed (probably cut, the barrel was shorter than the other one). $1500 for that one, barrel is in good shape internally, all the moving parts & trigger were pretty smooth.
The second one had matching numbers, good operation, intact barrel, and an "inverted spike" scope. ~$2100 for that one.
I was also shown an L1A1 (new) seemed OK, triger was a little creepy, but it was only $795.00 ... So, what do y'all think? any likely deals in there anywhere?
