This is an STG I built for a friend of mine. I stripped it down, sand blasted it and Parkerized it with manganese phosphate. It came out pretty well I think. Now I just have 5 more to do.

I will say this, a lot of work goes into doing this right. The pros here deserve the money they get.

which handguards are those? How do you like 'em? The handguards on my "new" M444 are a little beat, so I was thinking of replacing them.

Those are the standard steel STG-58 handgaurds. They are Parkerized with everything else just as they came from the factory. I have also sprayed them with Aluma-Hyde II before with excellent results.

FLC, Excellent work there. I have to agree with you, everyone should build one of these from the ground up, complete with refinish, white letters, redo furniture, test fire and sight in. You'll come away with a gourgeous rifle and all new respect for the guys that do it for a living. I literally spent all day doing my first one, but she was a work of art when finished.
