Springfield Armory SAR-48 7.62x51mm NATO Transferable Machine Gun
This Chester County Armory listing is for a Springfield Armory SAR-48 7.62x51mm NATO fully transferable machine gun.
Built by Springfield Armory, Inc. in Geneseo, IL, the SAR-48 is a direct, US-made copy of the venerable FN FAL assault rifle. Known as the “right arm of the free world” based on it’s widely accepted military use by NATO countries, this FAL copy was built by Springfield using the original metric design. This model is a full size rifle version, and features a fixed stock and a 21″ barrel. The fire selector controls are marked “S”, “F”, and “A” in white and red letter for safe and fire, respectively. This model will also come with its original Springfield Armory manual, as well as an original olive drab sling and original FAL bayonet with scabbard.
This transferable machine gun is in superb condition! Mechanically, the bolt and bolt face are clean with very limited wear markings. The fire control internals are in excellent shape, as well, with only minor wear markings noted on the face of the hammer. The rifle bore is bright and shiny with crisp and clean rifling. The metalwork on the gun is fantastic, with no dings, dents, scratches, etc..
Cosmetically, the exterior finish on this model is incredible! Its matte black finish has virtually no handling marks on the metalwork, outside of the markings of the safety/selector control and only a very minor mark of note on the forearm. The polymer stock and pistol grip are also in excellent condition. This weapon is a beauty for an almost 40 year old transferable machine gun.
This spectacular transferable model is currently on a Form 3 for easy transfer. The current NFA Form 3 lists “Springfield Armory” as the manufacturer and “SAR-48” as the model.
