i was reading on weaponeer forums and a few guys use mig welders to build their rifles but they say that tig is the best to get "factory" looking welds. From what these guys say you can go either way. i used a mig welder in high school and boy did i suck lol

Just a sugestion but you may want to clean the rust off that $2000 rifle, Unless of course you are looking for that used in a South American Jungle look.:cry:

Actually, there isn't a hint of rust on that rifle. There was this weird, brown crusty dust all over it. I took those pictures the day she came home, then I sat down with a spray can of REM OIL, some armorer's brushes, and showed that rifle some love. She cleaned up very nice.

Yeah, I just recently joined militaryfirearms.com. I used to be a member of the forum back in the day when it was Cetme.com. great group of people over there.
