View Full Version : DS ARMS G-1 Kit and service!
November 28, 2001, 11:33
I just got my G-1 kit today. They shiped it by Fed-ex, and even though Fed-Ex doesn't update there tracking info as nice as UPS, I received my package at noon. UPS normally delivers to residential customers in the evening when most people are getting home from work. And to bussiness's during the day when they are open. They shipped it in a nice box as apposed to another company whose box was hand built. They filled it to the max with styro peanuts. All the parts where nicely wrapped, and or sealed in ziplock bags. The kit came with "NEW" metal handguards, magazine, carry handle plastic, and pistol grip. Along with a few little extras in the parts bag that I didn't expect to recieve and some nice catalogues. The price for all of this was $144.95, and that includes shipping to FL. Shipping time was 7 bussiness days. Even though I didn't get there refinish option. I am extremely pleased with there product, and service! :D :D :D :D :D http://www.hunting-pictures.com/members/GunHo198/IMG_0063.jpg http://www.hunting-pictures.com/members/GunHo198/IMG_0064.jpg http://www.hunting-pictures.com /members/GunHo198/IMG_0065.jpg http://www.hunting-pictures.com/members/GunHo198/IMG_0066.jpg

That is the way mine arrived Monday. I got the refurb option and am glad. The wood stock is definetly a Eratz(sp), but it may work up good; if not I have a Izzy that I can use until I find some good loking wood.
Glad to see someone else pleased with their kit. DSA is first rate with these kits.

I wanted the parkerized option, but they were getting backed up. And i'm a compulsive shopper when it comes to firearms. I found 4 cracks in my buttstock under all the wax. I'm going to get some epoxy and a clamp and see if I can salvage it. I really wanted to do wood buttstock, and plastic pistol grip on this one. The wood pistol grip is ok. I may refinish it and if it comes out ok I might switch it with my other rifle. All in all the kit is really in great shape. I'll definatly be getting more from them. :) What do you recomend for the handguards that are grey? Should I paint them?

These things are pretty handy for getting glue into tight places.

I use Gorilla Glue. It is great stuff. You can find it at Lowes ad Ace Hardware.
My stock wasTurk replacement and I got a plastic grip. I am going to reshape it, but I wonder if fixing some cracks would have been easier?

For the wood cracks use Gorilla Glue or Brownell's Acra-Glas. Both are about the same price. Use wood scraps,
such as paint mixing sticks cut up, to
cushion/protect the wood, & "C" clamps
or your regular shop vise. Clean/enlarge the cracks a bit to insure a good bond, plus it'll allow you to insert the glue easier.
For the old DSA handguards: spray them with Dupli-Color spray-on truck Bed Liner(it'll give them a slightly textured black rubber coating). Easier
to hold onto, & it adds a bit of heat protection.

Thanks guys, I got the glue for the stock and it is turning out nice after all. I found out I was missing a screw for the magazine release. Called DSA and it will be shiped out monday. I am EXTREMELY pleased with this company by far. I hope I can twist the wifes arm and go for a 3rd. It will put me up to 18 firearms. Gonna need more space!?.. :D :D
