Springfield EBO SAR-8 SAR-3 Overstamp like HK91 – Pre-Ban

$1,399.00

This Pre-Ban Springfield Armory EBO SAR-8 (SAR-3 overstamp) is basically a civilian copy of the Heckler & Koch HK91. This one was made in Greece by EBO with H&K tools, so it is as close to an HK-91 as you can get. It was imported by Springfield Armory for your shooting pleasure. Some history from Wikipedia on the HK-91 and SAR-8: “The last few HK-91s that were delivered to the U.S. in 1989 were blocked by customs after President George H. W. Bush issued an Executive Order banning the importation of “non-sporting” rifles . . . Licensed copies of the G3 and HK-91 were produced in Greece by Hellenic Arms Industry or “EBO”, using factory tooling purchased from Heckler & Koch. A small number of these HK-91 clones, which are functionally and aesthetically identical to the German-made rifles, were imported into America by Springfield Armory, Inc. and sold under the designation SAR-8. These rifles, which ceased being imported in 1994, are not to be confused with later Springfield-made SAR-8 model rifles which feature cast aluminum receivers and are considered of markedly lower quality, being valued at far less than the original Greek models.
