Good day folks - new member here hoping to find out a couple answers about a firearm I acquired back in 2012.
That firearm is an SAR-48 with the Hebrew markings and heavy barrel. I believe this is a decent one, but I have been reading about how parts kits are used to build some of these versus the gun being "complete" from the factory. My question is how does one tell that? Is it only possible by calling Springfield with the SN #?
Some tidbits the best I can explain them: Three position selector with Hebrew markings on lower. S.A.R.-48 and 7.62mm SA-(4 digit SN) stamped on upper above the firing selector. Springfield markings on upper - trademark & Geneseo, IL. 1005-SA-48-MATCH stamped on the upper. IMBEL/Brazil markings near mag well behind hand-guard.
Any thoughts or information is greatly appreciated.
