    Default My first post is a question about receivers

    This is a welcome space! It is good to see familiar names!

    Okay, I just heard something and want to verify....can we use a Vulcan receiver for a PMKMS underfolder if the hole only nicks the K in the serial number (mine is K0000xx)? The mechanism will cover part of the number but still be there.

    Is this permissible?

    It's good to be here.

    All my not be lost, Global Trades is supposed to be releasing a new AK receiver within the next week or so. Thicker (1.6mm) material, no word yet where serial number will be though. It may be worth a try.

    Yeah, the thicker metal is interesting. The $12 fee for machining the front and the rear trunions is nominal. When you think that a Vulcan cost around $40 and the Global should be around $75-80 (?) the extra $24 machining costs makes the receiver pricier than others.

    Still, I'll probably be in for one just to see what real quality looks like.

    One could always use a bent metal or ace & build their own...

    Those come with a template? My krinkov side-folder kit (from K-Var) came with one, and I'm just wondering if these underfolder kits come with any sort of template?

    Talking

    Many of you may have read the news on another board. Vulcan, the current value priced receiver, is supposed to move their serial number to the front, out of the way of the underfolder.

    This is welcome news and a potential money saver.

    Has anyone yet received one of the new Vulcan receivers? I'm interested in seeing where the new serial number is and how the quality is on them.

    To your question directly, no. However I was told by a good source that Joeken has received a small amount of receivers. They are the ones with the old serial number location (no good for underfolder builds). The expect the balance of the shipment soon.
