    Should be fine installing the blocker after bending, since he'll still need to cut several openings in the bottom before being able to install the other parts. As it is there's no way for the sear to enter the receiver (the two smaller holes).

    ive been interested in the .40 s&w but d&d sales carbine barrels are cheap so i think im gonna go with that. so my jig would have to have a sort of round mandrel to extend into the trunnion area to ensure proper forming. if i come up with a good jig i guess i will have blazed the trail for uzi flat bending.

    i think the blocking bar doesnt have to be welded in until before you weld on the back plate thing bc i remember seeing receiver shells for sale that didnt have the bar installed somewhere. i think it was group industries.

    sucessfully screwwed up the flat, wasted $64 and pissed myself off.... tried to do it by sandwiching it between two peices of flatstock and prying it like how some people bend G3 flats.

    goodluck to anyone who tries this.

    I had an idea. Some of the kits like the one I got from numrich have the front section w/ trunion torch cut behind the trunion. The flat from mckay looks like a booger to bend in this area. Why not trim the receiver stub off a bit behind the trunion, and cut the front off the flat just behind the trunion area. The flat should be alot easier to fold after cutting the front off. Get your measurements off the flat before cutting. Weld the two together. Am I making sense? Should save a few bucks. Hell, dutigaf has probably already done one just like that!

    I just ordered my nodak spud receiver shell. akfiend, how long did it take to ship yours? Also, I re-read the thread and saw where you had said almost exactly what I posted about the cut and weld idea. How did I miss that? I can be a dummy sometimes!

    The lack of a bending jig has been whats holding me back as well!

    Hopefully someone comes up with something before the prices on the flats go up!!

    I found that I have a PDF copy of the Group Industries UZI receiver instructions on my hard drive. It is small enough to email if you want a copy.
