    New guy from IL with a SA93

    Hello all! New guy here from IL. Recently picked up an SA93 from Georgia, still waiting for my girlfriends dad to bring it up with him when he comes to visit next. Iím still on the fence but Iím leaning towards a type 3 conversion with it. Already has a stock set done to it so thatís nice! Just shopping around now looking for places to acquire the rest of the parts needed. A little about me, Iím 23 years old, Iím a firefighter/paramedic, enjoy working on cars and motorcycles and am an avid gun collector/enthusiast, I build AR-15s. Currently own 18 guns and counting. Looking forward to conversing with you all and learning more!

    Thank you. I think I did okay on price, ended up paying $900 for it. I'll be sure to keep updating a thread as I make the conversion.

    That’s probably a fair price. It’s a fine canvas for the conversion.

    It's tough to see whats been done to it already without having the gun infront of me. Just judging off of comparison pictures of other type 3 builds it almost looks like the gas block, handguard retainer and gas tube have already been converted. The owner I got it from didn't know much unfortunately. But I'll definitely be needing to either refinish or get new stock sets.

    Upon further review of the photos does it look like the previous owner just slapped a lower tang on without having a slot filed in the receiver or am I being crazy? Is that even possible? That's something I will need to correct straight out of the gate.

    Welcome to the group!

    SA93 were really nice response to Bush the First hatred for what he called "evil looking weapons".

    Yes that lower tang is on the wrong side. Not too hard to slot the proper location with a Dremel and file, assuming it isn't already slotted.
