    Been searching the net on one for sale. Found one in Canada. Turns out it's the ad that the first pic I posted is from. It's listed at $895, Canadian dollars I'm guessing. About $666 USD. I wonder how hard it would be to get it here?

    They do have a nice crest!

    Very interesting weapon and nice find. Do they still have any of them in service other than for D&C?
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure. Not much info on these out there. I think they were decommissioned and sold off. Reportedly a lot of them were exported to Australia.

    Yes, I heard that as well. That might also explain why I have only found a couple that have sold and one for sale now all in Canada. Canada has received lots of surplus rifles from Australia over the years.

    Training video of the Brazilian auxiliary unit training with it posted in 2016. Guess it might still be in use.
