    That would be a neat model to make a copy of. Maybe start with a Saiga .223 and some Galil or krink parts?

    The strange thing is that the guy do not own an AK, he had an AR and a couple bolt actions on base according to the armory record.

    Well, that's why I try to find more info on the Wieger type guns, because I have not idea what I have.
    That's interesting. What base - in Germany? If so, those parts may be original STG parts, in which case they are worth their weight in gold!

    It looks like the original grip. I'm trying to find a source for those grips, or if I can find a good model, use it to make a run of foregrips from a company that can do injection molding.

    A company called *STOCK OPTIONS* used to (still might?) make the correct STG-940 furniture for them.



    You're right...not much on the net about the cool looking STG-940. This was the best I could do....

    Pookster, why not cheat and use a wood forarm coated with bedliner (rhino-lining) or something similar to get the STG-940 profile handguard w/out having to injection mold anything... Just an idea...

    I can't find enough info on the web, just a couple pictures at "www.securityarms.com" with no details.

    Here's what I got so far on my .223 STG-942.

    Anything will help, thanks guys!
    Thats a custom built rifle. Probably home build. Look, the top cover is off of a Chinese Norinco Hunter.

    Agree, that is a custom rifle. Didn't know that was a Hunter top cover, though. Check the AR birdcage flash hider...

    Some Hunters came with the peep sight top cover and others came with regular sights. Also... about 7 years ago Flash Dist. got a small shippment of Chinese peep sight top covers like shown in the top pic/rifle. They went fast at $40 bucks ea. I got one, then called to order more and they were all out.

    The receiver, trigger group, and the gas piston are all US made.

    When I first installed the original barrel assy on it, no one can hit jack because the short sight radius, that must be why the Indian Army rejected it. For a while, I was thinking about using the Galil top cover/rear sight combo, but found out it was too expensive.

    Finally, a friend gave me his Norinco top cover when he switch over to one with the scope mount rail. Any way, it only costed me a 12 pkg, and the hit probablity has gone way up.

    P.S. Any one have any close-up pictures of the real deal?
    Can you provide any more details on the build? The Chinese rivet pattern is apparent, as well as the Chinese mag. Personally I prefer the looks of a Chicom 5.56 30 rounder over the slightly more compact Wieger mags, but on such a project I'd want to use the factory type mags if possible. Which receiver/flat did you use? Any further info appreciated... I don't have STG parts but some Chinese that could be mated to an OOW 5.45 rec. and modifed to accept the Wieger mags. The rear furniture from I/O looks good to me, the front end would require a good bit of tweaking though without a source.

    Enquiring minds...
