Incredible find.

That price shows there are some collectors out there.

Someone got some good spares for their G-type.

Interesting to see the bolt in the white like that.

I actually really like the way that finish has aged - almost tiger striped.

Hi Matt,

That is an Imbel receiver, but the rest of the rifle is an STG58, the Austrian version of the FAL.
