Do they come with the plastic hand guard or metal one?

I'm looking to buy an STG58, where's the best place to get one? How much they running now? I've seen them in the shotgun news for around $480, in stock. I'll order the thing tomorrow if I can get a concensus on a good dealer with a reliable weapon... Any suggestions would be helpful.

The ones that are in shotgun news are Centurion made and I was told on fnfal.com that they have a shady rep and you take a 50/50 chance if they will work well or not. That is what I was told if anyone can prove me wrong please do because that would save me around $375 if I get the centurion one and thats a lot of extra's for the rifle or a few thousand more rounds of ammo.

Tayous1, the ones I'm looking at are Austrian parts on imbel recievers (which seems to be the better quality stuff, but I dunno). Maybe I'll jump over to FNFAL.com and see what they have to say...

raf, I have an STG58 with the plastic DSA handguards, and they are molded so that the STG bipod folds and fits very snugly.
