Just finished my first 2 STG58 Kalifornia legal builds. Made on Entreprise type 3 receivers and STG58 all matching, excelent condition parts kits I bought from DSA in 2004/2005. I used the DSA HTS, gas piston, pistol grip and Falcon arms magizine bottom. With the fixed 10 round mag they shoot well as of the first shoot.

Nice work; I need to get a new set of handguards (can you believe the brazing on the nut portion of the left handguard cracked) then I need to find a set of the factory bipod; my barrel is cut for it but like a fool I sold it to a friend waaaaaaay back when he and I put ours together. I'm using a set of kludged L1A1 handguards right now. They work just fine and in fact I like that the black plastic matches the pistol grip and stock of the STG; plus those metal handguards get HOT!

Nice job - How hard was it to build on the Entreprise receivers? I've heard pros and cons. I've been thinking about building a FAL, but the DSA receivers are a little (read a lot) more than I'd like to spend.

Did you have to de-mil the kit; was the barrel still screwed into the receiver stub?

The Entreprise receivers went together with no issues. The barrell still had the stub on it but a couple minutes with a dremell and it came right off. To fix the mags I used 2 diffrent methods, #1 was drilled and tapped for an allen head screw and #2 i used a small machine screw to fix it. Took it and flattened of the head and just put in in the hole where the spring goes and put it together. I will use this method on any more builds as all it takes is removing the screw and putting the spring back in to restore it to a non-Kalifornia gun.

I will make you one for $39.99 + 12.95 S&H or you can go to the hardware store and spend 2 cents and around 5 minutes with a dremell and you are ready to go. But if you act now I will include 2 more " Kalifornia approved FN-FAL mag lock's" and all the metal shavings that come off the screw and the actual dremell tool that cut it for shipping and processing ($39.99).

If you would like better pic's PM me and I will see if I can do better, new to digital cameras.

Man I miss the days of unissued STG58 kits for $200 and imbels for $200. You could build a nice FAL for less than $500.
