    The pics of the rusty carrier show the rust is on top of the newly machined camming lug. In order for the stainless steel to corrode that fast I would bet the manufacturer test fired with corosive ammo and then shipped without cleaning. How did your bore look when you received it?

    the bolt & carrier are steel, the rust is from the acid residue from the parkerizing process not being neutralized after parkerizing. the gun was breaking out in rust all over.

    we are NOT using the centerfire method. Jestism has come up with a striker for the build and ive almost got it all rewelded ...... denials are in and the front 2 sections are done..

    so it wont be long and we'll have these running.

    We need to get together this fall/winter, i'd like to do one of these..

    Wiselite built my BREN and I had bluing bleeding out of the bipod for months till I finally got it all washed out. Stan built my RPD and did a great job with the bluing.
