I am interested in these also. Cant see how many spot welds are holding in the rails. But the bends are sharp and they also throw in a set of rivets and center support. Wish they had these back in the early days of building. I guess if you dont have a spot welder and want to build your own, this is your ticket.

Default Henderson AK receiver

I bought one - looked pretty darned good when received. There are at least 5 spot welds per rail - very sturdy and properly aligned. All the correct dimples at the mag well and the "detents" stamped at the trigger and hammer pin holes. The template that is glued to the receiver is very correct to scale and marked hole centers align with the detents, etc. The manufacturer is very clear that this receiver is not hardened - and will need to be heat treated at the pin holes and the ejector. Nice looking receiver.

Sure.

psl switch a roo with many customers and when called on it did their very best not to correct the issue until forced, then did the least legally obligated remedy.

Why not just buy a Cold Steel Solutions blank and make your own? All those guys did was weld in the rails. That took me (today) all of 17 minutes.
