Just thought I would mention the M64 I got from them had perfect uncut engraving and plenty of space to tig around it. If you guys are like me and want the real engraving its worth buying one just to cut this out and reweld in. Hotch

Another +1 for their cut receivers, they (thankfully) spared the locking lugs on my Galil receiver, the trunnion threads were good too, it will be an easy reweld.

Yes, first thing I did was weld up the sear holes and sear slot, the back-middle receiver is welded up, except for the front section, I have to make a jig for that. ;)

I already ordered some more cut receivers, they are enroute, will update on the models and their condition soon.

I am NOT saying all the (AK type) receivers were spared in the locking lug area, I certainly hope they all are! :D

I am sorry to say the locking lugs on my M76 were cut right infront of them, I am not saying you couldn't weld and rethread but hopefully if I can find an affordable kit will have the stub anyway. Apex is the premeir gun parts retailer IMHO, yes, they screw up sometimes like all the rest of us but they have never failed to make it right with me and I certianly will order from them first on kits because their qaulity is always better than stated. We all need to support this kind of business. Hotch

Any chance on getting more M1 Thompson cut recievers? I missed out on them last year when they were up for sale.
It's either Sarco or Numrich, can't remember which has M1 receivers for $54. But they don't include the nose piece. That is missing.

I think it's Numrich. And Sarco has the nose piece for $59. I know one has one, and one has the other.

Apex is Great.. to deal with, but those cut up receivers are depressing what a stupid waste when one or two holes could have been welded up and made just the same... dam red tape.. B2B

I got a M70 one a couple weeks ago for my older centerfiresystems milled Yugo RPK kit. Everything lines up good for a reweld. If one is buying it just to reweld it, the lugs on mine were torched, however for a kit that came with a front stub, it'll work nicely.

How come nobody ever sells 1917/1919A4 sideplates. Are the handled different. Seems like the back 33% of the R/H plate with the engraving would be a nice paper weight to sell.
The ATF guide depicts the placement of the cuts on the M1919 RHSP.
There is a 1/4 wide cut right thru the markings.
The de-milled M2 RHSP's we sold had the markings intact.

Just ordered a few different ones...One of the M64 receivers has the wrong rear center section.....it doesnt have the rib near the top.....Any chance I can get it switched for a correct one?

I know the ATF has specs on where and how the receivers must be cut,but there is no spec on how neat or sloppy that torch cut has to be is there? I can run a torch that almost looks like a plasma cut. I need to get a job cutting them so they can be saved for semi builds. Yes I know I would be evil for cutting them,but in a way I would be saving them.

I apoligize that we sent out the wrong set of de-mil pieces.
Please call the office next week to arrange the replacement.

Now, concerning the ATF de-mil specs, it is required that 1/4 inch of material be "lost" during the cutting of the receiver. US Customs has to inspect the work prior to the material "entering commerce". The folks running this operation know mistakes are costly. You can see why the de-mils look as they do.

Ok fellas,

My vacation was called off due to so many people quitting, 32 are gone this weekend.

I promised a review when the rest of my receiver pieces arrived. Again, I will state every receiver MAY NOT be uncut in the locking lug area, mine were. There is 1/4" (or slightly more) missing from each cut, it's NOT like some kits missing 3/8" or more!

The milled Yugo M-70 receiver was spared in the locking lug area, this will work out well. Granted, IF you already have a longer front stub (from your milled kit?) things would be very simple in the clean up dept, you'll also retain the engraving.

Yugo M-56 receiver pieces, NICE, this will ONLY work if you have the magwell/front stub from a kit, as the magwell and stub is missing from this one, they plainly state that.

Some may ask: "Why don't you just buy a new M-56 receiver tube?" Well, the economy and all, money is tight, it's a well known fact I'm a cheap [email protected] too. :D

I weld some ([email protected] and third world) tubing into automotive seat frames everyday, the engineering dept is laughable to the ones that actually do the work, or MAKE the design work. I figure I can weld up this receiver on a undersized ID sleeve, maybe with the right type of internal blocks and use heat sinks. ;)
