Springfield’s SAR-4800 FAL…in 5.56mm

This is Lot 712 in the upcoming RIA December Premier auction.

In the early 1990s, the Brazilian Imbel factory made a small run of FAL rifles converted to 5.56mm using AR magazines. They used standard FAL receivers and bolt carriers, with a boltface cut for 5.56x45mm and a magazine well insert with a new magazine release compatible with the AR magazines. About 700 were imported by Springfield under the designation SAR4800 5.56mm Sporter. These were all post-ban configuration rifles, with fake solid flash hiders and thumbhole stocks. This particular one has been rebuilt in the Para configuration with a proper flash hider, folding stock, and requisite replacement top cover and bolt carrier.
