View Full Version : What age for my STG kit?

March 24, 2011, 23:53
I have a kit with serial number 56622. Barrel - lower - bolt - carrier all have it. Worn finish on most of the parts, but the barrel looks new.

Plastic stock and grip.

Is there a source for an approx date of manufacture?

Any other info for this kit? Would building it with wood be inaccurate?

Check for a two digit # on the receiver stub and the barrel. I believe that should be around 1961. Early STG's had wooden Type C (metal ferrule) buttstocks with plastic grips and metal handguards.
