Fine looking mutt with some very nice original components. Those hand guards and stock are gorgeous.

What screws did you use to hold the sling swivel assembly on that one?

Not as nice as the OP's but it is surely a mutt. Not built yet, purchased as a 'hot mess',......which it is.

Saw-cut T-3 SA Imbel front receiver section, saw-cut T-1 Belgian rear receiver section, demilled BGS barrel, inch stock, metric wood grip, Aussie handguards. What's the lower,.....early blued StG or what? Why do I buy these things?

Hey Kev is this one of those Apex BGS barrels with the holes drilled in the Barrel and if it is what's your progress so far resurrecting it?

I haven't had it apart to check this barrel but I do have scads of other BGS barrels from APEX. I don't think they're reparable for .308 in an FAL. They've all got a roughly 3/8" hole bored through one side of the tube in three places. I think APEX does a good job of showing where the holes are, but one itsthrough the threaded portion of the chamber, one through the barrel under the gas block, and one through the barrel under the flash hider. All are hidden when built so can make a good display, but I can't see any way to plug or weld in a way that would safely stand firing pressure. I know that's done on some of the heavier MG barrels to effect repair, but the FAL barrel doesn't have near enough meat.

Shame, too. I have over a hundred of those demilled BGS barrels and every one of them was near perfect before being shot full of holes. I've tried to match up barrel serial numbers with known kit serial numbers and have only found about thirty matches. That's from I think 160 barrels. These barrels might have come from a different lot of rifles than what APEX sold off as kits,.....maybe the kits that Century butchered and built up as mix-masters. Dunno.

Mebsuta, I used black screws from Ace Hardware. I thought the ones that came with the Israeli non-swivel set were way too big.

That's to bad Kev just imagine if these would have been complete kits for $250 when Apex was selling them yeah I know I'm dreaming. Well since this country is sue crazy lets grab a shyster lawyer and sue the ATF it ought to work. ACLU should help us since our rights were trampled.

Argy receiver. StG lower. DSA HGs. L1A1 bolt, carrier, barrel, and FH.

Unique, but she is short, sexy, and a lot of fun to play with IMHO.

Kinda reminds of...........oh nevermind
