Hi All-
I have been looking at the STG 58 Austrian FAL kits that have been around for awhile, and had a question. They all seem to have a long flash-hider/GL combination on the barrel. Is it legal to assemble the rifle with one of these attached, or would you have to replace it with some other muzzle device?
Thanks,
Nic

If you build it with a BB type button you're good to go.

The FAL FH combo devices haven't come up as an issue.

I opted for the DNTC comp and it works fabulious. To comply with the hi cap/regular cap mags that I already had, I bought a US made pistol grip from dsa and made a pie cut right at the shelf where the nut bolts to the stud. From there I folded it back and JB welded the hell out of it. I then made a slit on the back part where your thumb would wrap around and fitted a piece of kydex there and JB welded the hell out of that. Sanded it down and painted... home made mm grip for a featureless build. I'll see about putting some pics up if I get a free moment tonight.

The blue is a piece of cardboard to give the jbweld some structure to cure on... All I used was a hack saw, file, sand paper, rasor and JB Weld and obvsiously a us made grip and piece of kydex. I could have made it look nicer but I wasn't going to make it look pretty to please CA.

The Stoll is a grenade launcher. The standard combo device is a grenade launcher. The standard AR A2 22mm flash hider is a grenade launcher. Does anybody in the DOJ that would actually care, know these facts?

Hey fellas,
I think the route I'm going to go is fixed 10 round magazine with a stripper clip top cover, and load the rifle like a big, .308 caliber SKS.
Thanks for the info,
Nic

If you didn't have mags before y2k, top loader is the way to go.
