Belgium G Series
The semiautomatic "G" series FALs imported in the early '60s contained a number of modifications, including elimination of the automatic safety sear, to render them incapable of full-auto fire. The BATF decided this was insufficient and demanded that the cut milled in the receiver to accept the safety sear be eliminated on all FALs imported to the United States.
The 1,836 rifles imported prior to this judgment were declared exempt from this requirement. This weapon is one of the second group of 253 BATF Exemptions. This Serial # can be verified on the BTAF Website.
I have maintained this weapon in excellent condition and stored in a climate controlled Vault with the rest of my Collection.
I am the second owner of this weapon and purchased it 30 years ago from another collector and the original owner.
I test fired one magazine of Factory Ammunition upon purchase and the weapon has remained unfired since.
I am scaling down my Collection as I live in the peoples Republic of California and my Son is unable to hold my entire collection in his safe.
