I was wanting to put a stg buttstock on my Century Fal R1A1 inch reciever and also what about those saw grips will they be able to be put on my inch FAL? Sorry new to FALS.

Depends what lower you are going to use. The STG stock will fit any metric lower except the rare type As. It will not fit a commonwealth ( inch ) lower.
Of course, either type of lower will work om the upper.

Most ordinary metric furniture (stock/grip) will not fit on an inch-pattern lower without very labor-intensive, and skilled, modifications.
If you want metric stocks/grips, it is much simpler to install an entire metric lower.
If your current inch-pattern lower has US-made, inch-pattern, fire control parts, you should be able to sell it and easily recoup the costs of a metric lower. Inch-pattern fire-control parts are scarce, and in high demand.

Damn it. It says Inch on the side what am I gonnado? I was looking at the DSA stocks and like them I wanted to put thier polymer copy of the STG set on my rifle.:(

If you are wanting to replace the crappy Century furnature (like I did) you might look for a set of British "Maranyl" (black nylon) stocks. This does raise havoc with the compliant parts count, however.
Better yet, a set of wood stocks. Wish I knew where to find some.
Placing a WTB for a complete metric lower in the market place may turn up what you want. Likely have to install a FCG for parts compliance.

Hey do the metric h-guards interchange I heard they do?

Not to hijack the thread, but does the reverse work? I have a metric lower and it seems I can find more and cheaper wood buttstocks for it (something I've been wanting to do) if I look at the L1A1 furniture
