Thanks, but I knew where to get it.

It's just having the money to afford it that's the problem.

Where did you get it, how much and what's it built on?

Traded a guy on falfiles a bushmaster upper, a bcg, ch, and 150 round of 5.56 for it.

It's an Enterprise reciever and the manual says STG58

Sweet. Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

That is a sweet rifle. She deserves a better set of hand guards. Those Penguin units make the barrel look like it is bent.



Congrats on your purchase. If it is indeed an StG 58, it will be a fine shooter.

I finally got to shoot it yesterday.

I put about 20 rounds (all I had) of .308 Winchester White Box through it.

Couple of issues extracting but no misfires/FTF.

Things I learned: Need to learn to sight in rifles and to adjust the gas system.

Keep the gas system clean.  Mine started giving FTE. No amount of adjustment would fix it, till I cleaned the gas system.  She runs like a champ now.

Sorry to tell you that it doesn't look to have much if any STG parts.  Your mag catch is Isreali.  Does your lower have SRA markings or SED?  SED is STG.

STG's have:

Stoll Flash suppressor
SED lower
3 round count holes in back of magazine
Bipod cut barrel
Steel hand guards.
usually have a QD gas plug
short carry handle
straight comb(NON humpback) stock.

I don't understand any of that, and the mag release is not original to the rifle, I had to install one because the rifle was originally sold in Kalifornia

SRA meaning where the selector is; ie. safe, repeating, automatic. I'm guessing SED would denote the original austrian lower? My BGS german lower has funky markings, but is the correct profile for the T48. Time for some jb weld, the dremel, and some alumahyde.

ETA: Who can stamp it for me...
