Way back when were some BM-59s imported by Beretta or their agents?
I also remember Springfield offering BM-59s for a few years, were those parts kit guns?
Who couldn't afford one, sigh. If I knew then....

My rifle came with a catalog listing FAL and HK clones.
Alas, that was one of the things that nearly did them in, back in the '90s.

YEP, both Springfield Armory & Golden State imported parts kits & assembled them for sale.
also, Beretta also sold some of their (mostly H&R) rebuilds in the 1970s to police agencies & perhaps a few to civilians. - my local SO still has at least two of the SA/FA ones in their armory.
IF a person wants to go to the trouble & has access to a machine shop, J&G Gunranch will sell you a parts kit (with mostly NEW "PB" parts & 2 new magazines)
the instructions on how to make your own semi-auto/first model BM59, for about 300.oo.
