Thinking about selling My DSA FAL stg 58 Kommiefornia neutered model with 21 inch barrel with Nato Grenade/ Flash hider, to fund my new supermoto addiction. How much is it worth?

not much really, I tell you what. If you pay for the transfer I will graciously trade you a Mosin Nagant for it :D

I thought that the STGs were selling for about $1,000 when they were still available? I am on the FAL files on occasion and am surprised at how little real nice FALs sell for. It's a great time to buy an FAL but a poor time to sell one. The CA models in particular are not very attractive because they don't use a bullet button to make them a fixed mag.

First thing I did when I got it was remove the little annoyance DSA welded in the mag well

I was just about to ask about that actually.

I would guess assuming that that was done correctly, and it is not beat to crap around 700, maybe 800 tops

700 800! that's around what I paid for a JLD PTR-91 with aluminum Trigger group and a dozen brand new HK Mags a few years ago. I would think with the end of the world coming and Obama getting put in office again FAL's would fetch a higher price.

its a free market, sell it for whatever you want. If you start with a high asking price dont get shocked over all the lowball offers you get.

On Gun Broker the DSA STG58 tend to list for $1600 to $1900 in the free states. A California model should be worth about $100 more. So $1700 would be a fair price for both buyer and seller.

Depending on round count and condition I would expect that rifle to bring between $1250 - $1500 here on calguns. YMMV on other sites.

It depends on how old your Fal is. The problem with the newer DSA Fals is they tend to be made mostly of new US made parts, and they don't have the same value to collectors. If it was an older original Steyr kit build, it would have a much higher value to the Fal guys.

That said, black rifles in general don't hold their value very well, and usually the seller will not recoup the money they put into them. In the case with DSA, their rifles are at the top of the price market, but there are a couple of other brands out there that sell for quite a bit less, sometimes half the price. Because of that, people in general won't pay that much for a used rifle since they can go buy a "new" one from another maker for a lot less, and it hard to sell them on the quality thing.

You may get lucky and get someone to bite that really wants one and will pay for it, but like someone else said, don't be shocked by lowball offers.

I'll agree with that - was going to go with $1,400.00. I think at $1,250.00 so long as it's in good shape it would move quickly, at $1,500.00 it might sit a bit.

Wouldn't let it go for less than 1500.

Depends on the build kit used and if it has matching numbers? +1 on FAL files for all things FAL!

FWIW just an excellent condition L2A2 heavy barrel alone are priced over some of the numbers above.

eh its an STG parts kit build with DSA lower I bought it back when the OFL thing was in it's infancy, willing to let it go for 1200 with extra metric mag rebuild kits Originally it had a DSA 16 inch barrel but swapped it out with a stg 21 incher
