    mtdew,

    This is a jig I bought from machman. It's real simple to use and it works great!




    It can not be used on a receiver that's already been hardened.
    It's meant to be used on a pre-bent blank before the mag opening is cut out. This prevents the opening from being pulled out of shape when the dimples are formed.
