well one thing you can do is take off the bipod (or don't use it). At least the stock STG type bipod. First trip to the range with my STG58 and it took me a while to figure out it was the bipod making my shots so high. it was stable but shooting something like 3-4" high at 100 yards.

I took my DSA STG58 (18In Argie chrome barrel) to the range on Monday, I mounted a Tasco 10X Super Sniper on it (I used a DSA mount & arms QD rings)
Shooting Port surplus & South African surplus I was getting about 2 MOA.
The great news was that 500rds fired with ZERO malfunctions & Cleanup was a breeze ( I usually shoot AR15s & AR10s, They are absolutly filthy after 500 rds).
