I picked up a Colt Woodsman clone today. It is an Argentine Gaucho, .22 long rifle. Imported by FIE, I can't find anything about it in the Blue Book. Looks like a Colt, shoots like a Colt and better looking than the Chinese copy. Does anyone out there know much about them? Way cheaper than a Colt Woodsman.

Most likely it is a TALA pistol made in my country Argentina, it is a Colt Woodsman clone very well built in steel, they were produced with different barrel lengths, the handles can be made of plastic or wood, they are all .22 LR caliber In the 70s they were exported to the United States where they were sold under the FIE brand, in my country they were very popular and can still be seen in armories, their value in good condition ranges from $ 150 to $ 250, the finest models were delivered in wooden box with sliding lid.
If you can post a photo of the weapon, you can confirm everything written.
In the 80s, the FUNDALUM pistol was also manufactured in Argentina, which is very similar to the TALA but more rustic. I am not aware that FUNDALUM has already been exported to the United States.
I hope this information helps you.
