    Default reciever flats

    I've got a question about receiver flat.
    If I buy a receiver flat and find someone else to bend it
    for me does it have to go to a FFL holder before I can get
    it back. My second question is does anyone on the site know
    anyone with a bending jig that would bend a flat for me ?

    First question; yes, providing they were a licensed manufacturer. If they were not, it would not be lawful for someone to form your
    flat into a receiver and return it to you .
    Second question; probably not

    About the only way to do it without buying the equipment yourself is finding somebody that will let you come over and help bend it. If you were closer to the Kansas City, MO area I would say you could come and use one for free that I am making to sell.

    I have to agree. bending a flat for someone else is a BAD idea. I would either buy a jig. rent a jig , borrow a jig, or visit someone with a jig, then you can bend your own flat. even the law is happy with any of thies. hope it helps.

    Agreed.
    You could find someone with a jig willing to help out as a "adviser" but to be legal, you must make the bend Yourself.

    There has to one of us with a jig somewhere close to you. If you are in the frontrange of Co. you could bend it yourself on my jig.

    I'm working on making about thirteen of them right now and got enough steel to make another 35 or so on Wednesday. All of the side plates I'm using are laser cut then I machine the reliefs for the all of the indentions in the flat so none of them get smashed going through the jig. Then in the middle piece of the center of the jig there are alignment dowel pins that center the flat in the jig so you don't have to mess with measuring at all.

    I should have the thirteen jigs done for Monday and I may have one of those that's not spoken for at the moment. Otherwise I'll be starting on a new batch on Tuesday or so.

    Today I'm going to toy around with a barrel press design once I get some lettering done that I have to go install on a diesel today.

    please put me on your list if you would PLEASE.
    I figure I'll buy five flats and bend them for myself
    and then rent out the jig or just sell it to someone
    here at gunco. by the way what's the price on the
    jig ??????

    I guess if there's not an extra jig I'll give sks_hunter's
    way a try

    thanks dixieboy
