Santa Fe M-59 Trooper Semi Auto Rifle in .308 Win Black – Pre-Owned


From Wikipedia: The Beretta BM 59 is an Italian-made rifle based on the M1 Garand rifle, but chambered in 7.62×51mm NATO, and modified to use a detachable magazine.  After World War II, Italy adopted the US-designed M1 Garand rifle and also manufactured it under license, but in the late 1950s it was considered outdated and obsolete and the Italian military also wanted a new rifle chambered for the NATO-standard 7.62×51mm round. The BM 59 has several military and civilian variants that include the BM62 which is a semi-auto chambered in .308 Winchester (not 7.62×51mm NATO), came with 20-round magazines, civilian flash hider (no bayonet lug, no grenade launcher, and no tri-compensator), extremely rare to have gas cylinder with bipod capability. 


This is a Golden State Arms “Santa Fe” M59 following the template of the Beretta BM59.  GSA was a company in Pasadena California that was licensed under Beretta to produce the BM59 rifle after the import restriction ban, Gun Control Act of 1968.  The receivers are re-welded M1 Garand receivers using ’03 barrels and are marked with “Golden State Armory, Pasadena, California” and some are marked with the Beretta Licensing Agreement, some are not.  Many of the other parts in the gun are marked “SA” (Springfield Armory) to comply with the minimum parts count in the 1968 GCA.
