Just picked up this 1950 La Coruna FR-8 in 7.62 Nato (.308 Win).

Condition is pretty good. Can`t wait to shoot it........

I like mine
Those are pretty cool rifles. I have one I bought in 1992 and I really like it. I don't hunt so I have never shot anything but targets and some milk jugs filled with water but it works well. I have read that there is starting to be some collectors interest in them so prices should keep inching up.

Not here in germany.
They are dead chead here.
I paid 120,- for the rifle, including about 100 rounds of surplus .308 and about 270 rounds of plastic training ammo ans some salute rounds.

So one could almost say, I bought some ammo for e 120,- and got a rifle for free....:D

I paid $105 for mine 20 years ago. 6th edition of Standard Catalog of Military Firearms gives it a value of $325 in very good condition.

I see them FS once in a while around here. 375.00 to 425.00. Being a large ring '98 action does make them safe w/ .308 ammo. Great little guns. They were trainers for the Cetme and Civil gaurd use.
