Thanks for the info. I have orderd to inch pattern and one metric and wanted to know if there were problems that I could correct. I think for my STG 58 I am going to get a DSA type 2. I like fals almost as much as aks.

The big problems reported were with the feed ramps, the so-called unibrow over the gas piston hole, locking shoulder hole is tight, the bolt rails are tight, the magwell is sometimes tight.
Check out this link on FAL Files for better info:
I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed with the DSA receiver. I ordered 2 Imbel kits from Gunthings.com. The kits that I got were the "good" condition bore versions, and there isn't the slightest imperfection on either one. Both of these are going to get DSA type 1 receivers (I'm still saving up for that purchase...). I have a third kit that I bought on eBay the middle of last year. The bore is kind of crappy near the muzzle, but is fine further back. I think I'll shorten that one to 17" and use one of the Coonan or maybe Imbel Gear type 3 for it.scubadvr said:I think for my STG 58 I am going to get a DSA type 2. I like fals almost as much as aks.

Winn R said:Yes the Austrian stuff is nice. Also very pricey.
Wasn't that kit something like $500?
We'll see what and if Inner Ordinance comes up with.
Winn R said:Jack, I ordered the inter-ordinance kit one month ago but have not heard anything from them. How did the build go?
I'm here now! And the site is up and running. And I do have AK parts now. They have their very own catagory. I have US G1 and G2 FCG's plus Other AK goodies. Thanks for turning me onto this board Jack! Cool smilies here! :wave: :newbie: :hndgun:scubadvr said:Thanks for the info. I have finished my G1 with a CAI receiver. It seems to be ok but I have to wait to go to the range to see. Perhaps I will try some dummy rounds first. I really like the G1 have a couple of other kits yet to build along with some L1A1s. I am saving my STG for a DSA reciever type two. I can't wait until the Gun Parts Guy gets his site up and running. Perhaps we can convince him to move a little stonger in to AKs as well. Jack
Right now kits are kinda scarce. DSA has STG kits. :fal: And they are always for sale on the FAL files it seems. Right now the ATF is holding several thousand Imbel kits for political reasons. :bull: When those get released expect a bunch of them at decent prices. I hope I can get some myself in bulk when they do!yosuthnmasa said:Nice website! Will you ever have FAL parts kits?
