I want the FAL handguards below fit to my woo like in the picture. Who can do it?

I also want THOSE handguards. Where can I specifically get those FAL handguards?

Blain, that Century StG style HG's......No matter what FAL HG's you use, if you are going to keep the front sling swivel, you will have to cut and modify the Hg's for the swivel......Here is a pic of mine with IMBEL HG's I will take a pic this evening of the actual mod.....it is very simple.....
Also if you remove the swivel, no mods are required......

That's ok, I don't mind having the handguards modified so that the sling can function as intended. Do they just snap right on and fit perfect aside from that?? I know the original handguards screw on.

yep....fit right into the HG ring and screw goes right thru as intended, ONLY a small cut is necessary into the metal of the hg's to clear the Swivel. I used a round file and a small triangle file and was done in about 15 mins....

Your handguards are plastic, not metal, so I would bet the STG would take longer.

Have any pictures / instructions of how you filed the handguard? How hot does the metal get during firing? I wonder if the STG58 bipod would fit on the woo with those handguards?

These are Fiberglass/polymer Hand Guards the front is metal that has to be filed out, get you a set of handguards, put them into the HG's ring near the receiver and pull them together....you will see where they contact your swivel post/band mark them and start removing metal until first they fit properly, then you can start removing metal until you get the side to side swivel you would like from your sling swivel......NO, a standard FAL bi-pod will not work on your woo......

I will sell these HG's if you want these Imbels, (I lightly sanded them and sprayed them with a high gloss high temp kylon paint)..... for about what Imbel HG's sell for....$45 shipped....if you think thats a fair price.....
