+1 Agree on the 11.5" being a possible 'putol' and an almost non-existent brand-new Elisco. Elitool ceased to operate in late 80s or early 90s. However, it would be possible that a few 'prestine' and 'New-in-wrap' units (or barrels) can be had.That's too much for an Elisco. An 11.5" barrel is most likely a 20-incher that was shortened.
For a good quality Elisco, you should expect to pay Php 50K to 60K nowadays. You might get lucky sometime and find one for less than 50K, but most of the offers I've seen are a bit more than 50K.
By the way, I doubt it if you could ever find a 'brand-new' Elisco rifle. Elisco Tool company closed down in the 80's, IIRC.
I strongly suggest that you be wary of anyone claiming to have a 'brand-new' elisco.
For info bro, I had the chance to see an Elisco Standard m16 rifle at crame, if i'm not mistaken it was Sept last year. The price was 60k, with license, nakabalot pa sa plastic in brown box. I checked the unit it was bnew from what i've seen. Original.Thanks for the reply. BTW, this is from FED-crame itself, thats why I said/think the unit brand new. I, too think the price is high.
I am looking for a baby reasonably priced and in good condition. What worries me in buying a second hand unit is that there are plenty of fakes units around being passed on as the original. Any help in my search is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
t^ personally, I won't go higher than 70K, but I'll try to start at 55K. Make sure the adjustments for the sights -- front and rear, still works. These are usually corroded on most units. The looks of the barrel (length) doesn't look original. Looks like sawed-off convert from a 20". Try to check if the bolt-to-carrier lock-up is still tight. Lastly, have it test fire and see how close the round-to-round grouping is -- 25 mtrs at least.
