    Stopped at a local pawn shop, and saw they had an Enterprise Arms STG58 clone on the shelf. The guys there couldn't even tell me if it was inch or metric, (I don't know of the top of my head the differance), but stated Enterprise built the whole reciever. It balanced VERY well, felt better in my hands than 99% of all rifles I have tried, but the $1399 price tag made me almost fill the shorts. Great Scott. 25 percent down and pay in 2 months wouldn't do much either...
    So, even though, short of winning the lottery, I will never be able to buy this rifle, I am curious what thier rep is. It looked and felt well made.

    Not to the same standard as DSA.
    1400 for an Entreprise is WAY over priced. Even if its brand new.
    entreprise.com

    if it is a STG58 then yes it is metric.

    ps. yes it is spelled entREprise

    Hmm, thanks for the heads up, didn't know that. Guess I'll avoid that shop for anything but recieved firearms. Thank you, appreciate that.

    That is way overpriced, as the fellows have mentioned.

    As for their rep, Entreprise is earning themself a better review of late than they used to have; it seems steps are being taken internally to improve the quality of their receivers as well as their customer-service skills.

    The new guy at Entreprise seems to be melting in the heat of the kitchen.

    And the Entreprise kitchen is a very humid place to toil.

    Entreprise rifles are a bit of a crap shoot. If you must buy Entreprise, I recommend that you only do so if you are thoroughly familar with the FAL rifle. And then, I would not buy a used Entreprise from a second-hand dealer. Either buy it from somebody you trust, and who will disclose any "issues" the rifle may have, or buy it new-in-the box. Entreprise does have pretty good warranty service, even if you are not the original owner. I think the chances of having to invoke that warranty on a pawn-shop rifle are higher than average.

    You do realize too, Entreprise sells bare receivers. If the receiver on that pawn shop rifle was sold as a bare receiver, then its just a "parts gun." There is no warranty on a WECSOG-special parts gun.
