    Not that I'm aware of LOL. I have a M1A and an AR15 with a walnut stock....but not a FAL based rifle.

    Oh, I have a carry handle and "stock" for the 1919 but that's a whole different animal.

    It looks like a DSA FN-FAL. DSA makes their own receivers and builds rifles from military surplus rifles. (Much better quality than what the drunken trained monkeys at Century Arms produce). If you take the hand guards off, you may be able to find some makings on the barrel to indicate who the parts kit was made by.

    IIRC that looks like a long Belgian long flash hider. Check to see if it has been welded to the barrel. Looking at the selector, it looks like the full auto version. Hopefully the internal parts that made it a fun gun have been removed to make it legal. Current price? I have no idea. Condition will always be a factor. You might check their website or the Falfiles website and find out more.

    Looks like a kit build on DSA receiver, not sear cut so the FA fun switch wont work. Front end looks like a Austrian STG 58 but IIRC the AD is Australian on the lower does it have a wood "popsicle stick" on the front of the grip? Not sure on the different buttstock configurations, some of the G-1s had wood as did the Australians. Look under the handguards for any proofs, probably Styer but could be Belgian. Should be a very good shooter. Edited to add to check out Falfiles, they're falaholics over there.

    Yeah, as others have said that is a DSA FAL, at least the receiver is. As to value, I'd put it $1,000 and upwards of that. I know a new one with a forged receiver is about $1,800.
