WE ARE ALSO ACCEPTING PREORDERS ON ALL MILLED RIFLES DUE IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER


All Petronov Receivers are manufactured fgrom Russian Blueprints and engineering drawings dated from 1946 to 1986. We aquired 40m years worth of drawings that range from every part of the AK47 and 74 Platforms, to engineering drawings and documents of various prototypes never seen before. It was absolutely amazing to see prototypes that never came to life but probably should have.
All Receivers are 8620 Case Hardened Steel . Like our Infamous M1 Garand, which is probably the greatest receiver ever made.
All receivers are 8620 Case Hardened Steel, then Heat Treated RC 42-46, then all receivers are finish milled to perfection. All trigger and hammer pin holes, Barrel hole, and rear t slots, along with all interior rail work are done aftyer heat treating to prevent any tolerance issues. We want to remain spot on with all Original Russian Prints and Tolerance callouts so that you may see how well the rifle was intended tio function. The only minor change from the original drawings is our safety stop…that is all….evrything else comes directly from blueprints.

SO PLEASE ENJOY SOME OF THE FINEST AK47 MILLED RECEIVERS THAT HAVE EVER HIT THE MARKET AND THE WAY THNEY WERE ORIGINALY INTENDED TO LOOK.

Cast and case hardened? Have you done any destructive testing with these?

Default Q

thank you akmelee
for enjoying the read at the site. this has been a long time coming... basically 4 years, the last 2 being non stop work from prtotypes to different models, metals, metallurgy, destructive testing. etc. Ron Smith at Smith Enterprises in Tempe AZ was a huge help, he has forgotten more than most know about metal properties and heat treating correctly. Read up on Smith Enterprises and look at some of the things he done over the last 30 years, it is impressive. We collaborated on numerous models and various metals from 4130, 4140, 4150, STAINLESS STEEL, AND 8620 CASE HARDENED STEEL. all models and steel runs were tested destructively and
Non destructively including Chemical Composition, Tensile Strength, Elongation, Core Strength , Hardness etc.
I will supply you the numbers and results from those tests later in the week. I'm sure some here will be quite surprised.
8620 pretty much outperformed them all, not in every category but the most critical it was the hands down winner.
Ron Smith , using his expertise and knowledge with the Casting process suggested we try in 8620 as it would end up after heat treat, stronger and more durable than a piece of 4140 bar stock to be milled and it would be cost effective. Ron's words were "you know what makes casting better than milled"? "the company that Casts it"..... so you get what you pay for and you must search for longevity and expertise. We found that with our Foundry.

Interdasting

Any plans for a Galil receiver?

Can you do serial numbers and or other markings such as selectors?

Will these take etching?

In post #58, Anthony talks about casting being better than milled if the casting is done well.

I assumed this means that his receivers are cast. If so, why are these receivers advertised as "milled" in post #1?

Nothing stopping a person from milling on a hunk of cast steel or iron.

No clue how these are made or from what.

Hopefully the vender will answer.

He deleted the original thread when someone called him out on that early on, better to delete the thread to get that info out of the limelight and just remake the thread I guess.

Weren't M1 Garand receivers cast 8620 steel heat-treated then finish-milled the same way and they are considered the finest military receivers ever made ? Or am I wrong ?

My understanding is all M1 and military M14 receivers were forged.

M1 is different receiver from an AK type, it has different load bearing surfaces.

AK milled receivers are billet or forged and have never been cast.

I'm going to lean towards Tortort.
Heard from more than one builder he makes the finest US made milled AK receivers, plus I've personally dealt with him.
I loaned him a part to copy and he bent over backwards to return the favor, which he didn't need to do. He's a very stand up and intelligent man.

CNC Warrior also used 4140 when they were cranking out receivers, so does Ben and never heard a complaint on Ben's product.

hi 1biggun
how the receivers are made and from what was the purpose of the thread, it states from what material and how they are milled in the body of the thread.

by the way.... I will be posting destructive and composition results tomorrow (Tuesday) at the end of the day. we have also just received our final run samples and they look beautiful. they are heat treated and in the process of being milled for the final stage in production.
we are on schedule for the pre-order date of September 20th.

Truth be told , I am sure a Cast milled receiver will be strong.
Has any ComBloc military ever fielded one on an AK design???

Granted, I could believe in the past 50 years we've improved casting processes.
However, what I do see is modern Domestic companies striving to find a way to
save costs, and CAST is a way to do that........at the risk of strength (ahem cough Century)

https://m14forum.com/modern-m14/4063...ml#post3550090

You absolutely can NOT compare XYZ rifle to XYZ rifle because of critical areas
of thickness, and support between XYZ & XYZ never being the same.

So even if an M1 had initially been forged, and later were cast doesn't mean
the AK will be sufficient because they're not the same designs, and thickness everywhere.

The only way I personally believe a rifle can be proven, is putting it in full auto
and shipping it off to be tested by an unbiased 3rd party like say Battlefield Las Vegas.
Let them run it to complete failure and see when it fails, and document it.

Once evidence is shown from unbiased 3rd party, the market will have no choice but
to accept the facts and decide from there. Asking them to believe in a product without
evidence of failure points from unbiased outlet is a big ask.......Century did it, and burned people.

Heat Treatment and quality control are very important . Heat Treatment may be more important than " forged vs. cast " . Although I prefer forged steel Ruger has been casting firearm parts for darn near 70 years and they have a reputation for ' strength ' .

I was really curious about these receivers when I heard they were coming out as I've heard only good things about Petronov and his builds. So since I'm local I called and asked the owner if i could stop by and check out his new line and he was very inviting and said to come down. All i can say is I'm very impressed with these receivers. Anthony let me check out the receivers and even let me test fire one he built. WOW! I can't believe how smooth the bolt slides in these. Just like a hot knife thru butter! And when you hold one in your hand you can just tell this thing is built like a tank. I asked if I could take some pictures of one of his receivers and he said "sure go for it!". So I took some pictures of different angles so I could post it up here. l was so impressed I preordered two, a under folder & pistol model. So here are some pictures, hope it helps answer questions some of you may have.

First new member ^ post, and local to Petronov, and finds the recent Petronov thread to post in.

Looks a little funny......

Make me a believer by having a 3rd party unbiased trustworthy outlet run it til death, and document it.

I was thinking the same thing. Most definitely affiliated with PETRONOV, or it's Anthony himself lol. Pretty shady. IP check?

why not just make the damn receivers as they were made in the com bloc countries? milled from a block of steel. DROP forged blanks, or at least billet. regardless of testing, its not a good sales strategy. plus again with the pre-drilled barrel pin holes... :-/
