    All I need to know is how they work and get an idea of the adjustability range. I hate to spend $50-$100 just to find out. It might be more reasonable to just built something with replaceable restrictors.

    biggun you're right as always. 3rd hole == FA no matter what to the ATF. There were some PSLs that were recalled as "contraband" due to the existence of the 3rd (welded up) hole.

    No need to get your panties in a wad. If the extra holes are a problem, the question becomes "how do I deal with them to the satisfaction of the ATF." Best case, I weld them up. Worst case, I have to saw the offending area out and weld new pieces in. There's a sticky on how to do that at the top of this page.

    Though it has been some years since I've dealt with the local ATF office, they've been polite and helpful every time. I'll call tomorrow and set up an appointment with them to discuss the matter.

    There's no need to depend on net.lore when the ATF office is only half an hour away.

    I'll post updates as things develop.

    When I search for ".500 S&W" the search function says "S&W" is too short to search on. I found http://www.gunco.net/forums/f244/con...500-s-w-37685/ by clicking through the subject lists but it doesn't have anything about gas blocks. Can you point me to the gas block discussion?

    Case in point, that was exactly, precisely what I was explaining is NOT KOSHER.

    Sorry if you felt my PANTIES are in a WAD, but I was trying to explain this for your and others' benefit.

    So I'm sorry to try to be helpful with a "be careful" message.




    The ATF "declared" a batch of PSL receivers to be "contraband" because their 3rd hole was there, even though the factory welded them up!!!

    This was perhaps about 2-3 years ago? It was a big stink on the forums as everyone was pissed their brand-new purchases were going to be returned, and some people went so far as to remove their fine wood stocks as they were worried they'd get some crappy stock in the trade. I remember there was a lot of bitching on the AKFORUM about it. I didn't really pay close attention to it as I didn't have one and really didn't care. (shrugs)


    I do know that the factory-decommisssioned weapons (as seen on rusmilitary among other places) can NOT be imported into the USA because they don't meet the ATF's high standards. Believe me, I've even asked Oleg about cutting one up and sending only part of it to me, and he simply refuses

    I have no idea how this applies to decommissioned receivers, so it will be interesting to see how they approach this.

    Like I said I'm not trying to bust people's balls on it, but the ATF gets quirky when we have to wade through shit like this.

    Good luck.
