Just got confirmation from someone who was dealing with these that they were patterned after the 308 NDM-86

not heat treated.

Doesn't look like they are really worth anything, even to those like myself who have SVD parts kits.
Would you please ask your friend if they might know or can find out what material these are made from?

Thanks,

Brick

its called trickle out the inventory to keep demand high
It can happen, we were still finding old stuff in my warehouse, over 100,000 sq ft, until about 2006, when we went through the old place, and inventoried everything, and I mean everything, old cars, parts, old product. Some made 30 years ago. Then I took flor. Orange paint car and marked everything to shred. Now we know what is there. In the old days a warehouse guy would stick something in a corner, and then put stuff in front of it, then retire, quit etc. prettysoon nobody knew what was there. Computers changed everything.

The last time I purchased something like this from Centerfire it was a ORF manufactured Galil receiver marked "Galil Sporter" (later sold under the Golani name). Improperly heat treated and needed some other tweeking. Unless you have the mad skills of Rforbus I'd take a pass and just buck up for the real deal. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is.

I always and still would like a pistol caliber parts kit to build., with 16 inch barrel that looks similar to an AK74 pattern rifle. Primarily in 9mm or even 7.62x25 etc.

Even if these receivers are a mile off, I am sure I can figure out how to make a 9mm blow back or 22lr out of it. I think they may be useful, and an SVD in .260 rem might be cool.

I just picked mine up, and its NOT heat treated. It also has burs all over it! Definitely a project, but usable if you can figure out what its made of.

Mine does not look like the one in the picture. Nothing scientific but It has the bronze-purple color of heat treated steel, and a dull file skates over it while digging in a piece of un-heat treated 4130. I'm guessing it's probably in the 35-40 rockwell range.

It looks like maybe everything with a serial number 7 and under has been heat treated. While #8 looks white.
