sturmgewehr is your best bet. Anyone who can afford one now is looking there for stuff. Last one I saw sell went for like $10,000. There were less than 250 semi versions of these imported. Heartell there were even 100 or so L85A1 sporters imported but I have NEVER seen one of those for sale online anywhere......

Good Luck!

Cabby,

The only L85A1 w/all accesoories that I saw for sale was in 1992 for $9,500.00--- I think that there were only about 20 or so imported!!! :shock:

I knew the number was small. I would imagine one would go for $30k+ now. The FAMAS was as low as $3,500 when I got into guns in 2002. It has skyrocketed since then. Pre-Bans in general have gone way up. Valmets are a relative bargain now.

I wish I could cut the bones for the dealer display 62/S on sturm right now. That is the nicest gun I have even seen and $4,000 for it (for what it is) seems cheap.

Of course, with Steyr coming out with an US made AUG, the SCAR rifle shipping, Sig coming out with a .308 566 type, there are a LOT of guns trying to get my tax refund right now.....

If the SCAR .308 and a .308 Sig is also available we are all going to be broke soon!

I think the FAMAS import #'s were well under 250...more like 100. I've only ever seen 2 for sale. The one fairly recently on sturmgewehr for $10K and one a few years ago for like $9.5K. Neither was for sale very long. HTH.

I saw quite a few back in the 80's - when no one wanted one :)
