    Question Imbel Semi-auto Receiver...."NO MORE"

    Perhaps someone could answer my question on the dissapearance of the receivers from the USA market....I've never actually heard the cause of their dissapearance.Was it political------their's,our's,the UN? I'd been considering picking up a kit & receiver a few years back,but circumstances took me elsewhere. Now the receivers seem to be no longer available/allowed in the USA.Perhaps a history lesson would be of interest to others besides myself....anyone got a simple answer?

    Yep, banned from import by US law. Same reg that keeps bbls out. For a few years they let in some receivers and bbls for "replacement or repair" purposes but finally cut out that exception a year or two back.

    Hey I've got one of those sitting in my safe. How much do you figure it's worth?

    I have a Imbel gear logo receiver imported by CIA dated 2003. There is no banner on it. Just "Imported by CIA St Albens VT" in small dot matrix printing.

    Wow, thanks to my government I now feel so much safer now. I know as I send in my taxes this week that the money is well spent and they have my best interest in mind.
    The day of building inexpensive FAL's has passed us by. Best bet is to keep an eye out and buy them as they become available. I had 11 of them built when you could do it and the cheapest one I would sell now is $1100.
