    Actually, I think the first two ones might be your serial #. I'm not sure, but I took the liberty of adding asterisks to them.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    You have a British kit on an Imbel receiver, which is generally good stuff. Does it have the dumbhole stock? What sort of cut is at the front of the mag well, as Century did do a number of these otherwise inch guns cut for metric mags.

    Sounds like your standard inch pattern Century Arms FAL clone with an IMBEL (Brazilian) receiver. Depending on condition in standard configuration, should be worth around $450 - 700.

    Get thee hence to www.falfiles.com

    Home base for FAL nut cases - I myself have 4 !

    Since I hang there as well I can tell you that you have a Century Arms Franken-FAL!

    That's the slang term for a gun built from a combination of inch parts, and metric parts. The Imbel receiver is a good receiver, much better than Century's home-grown one.
