How accurate is a DSA STG58A? What type of groups can it get at 100-500 meters?

It's a battle rifle, expect to average around 2 MOA. I can hit a 12"x12" steel plate at 400 meters prone. They're battlefield accurate.

What he said. 2, 2.5, maybe 3 max MOA. Would lean toward the 2-side of that, though, as the Steyr barrels are very good barrels.

I had a DSA for a while and 2 to 3 MOA is pretty normal. The loose sight on the lower receiver is part of the problem and the basic design is the rest. That's wasn't very important in a battle rifle in the early 1950s.

They don't use many Steyr barrels, if any. The DSAs are the best of the Frankenfals. They put a good finish on the used parts and use decent US parts. They say they have a version that uses all new-condition surplus and US parts. You should see how much that version costs.

RAF, glad DSA is consistent. They told me two months on Friday.

I believe all the STG-58A's use the Steyr barrel.
That package built on a DS Arms receiver is about $900.
In my opinion best value in the FAL area.
