Just trying to figure out the details about DS Arms STG58 FALs. I'm meeting a guy tomorrow to buy his "new/unused" STG58. This might be a dumb question, but does DS Arms just make the barrel and receiver and put them onto used parts kits? Or, is the whole rifle new? If it is on a kit, is the kit a used one? Is the stock going to have dings and scuffs, etc? The ad on their sight (http://www.dsarms.com/STG58--Austrian-FAL-Standard-Rifle-308-Cal-----STG58STD/productinfo/STG58STD/) for them has me confused as it seems to read that the only new parts are the barrel and receiver. I can't figure it out from what the info I'm gathering here on the Inter Webs. :confused:

DS Arms STG-58s are built from surplus Austrian parts kits, so US receiver plus, possibly, other parts (I think they imported their StG-58 kits before the ATF decided that foreign made rifle barrels were a sign of the apocalypse, so US barrel may not be guaranteed).

ayup...they are in-house receivers and Austrian kits made up of parts from used rifles. that's why you're saving so much over their rifles made from new parts
