Snook may i ask what you paid for the reciever without dealer cost? I hope they arent out of recievers by tomorrow morning I really cant afford DSA. If they are out what about this DCI? Who are they and what prices can be expected?
DCI is Dan Coonan and they are probably the best cast receiver out there. Normally very high quality, they were sold through Federal Arms Corp, or FAC, which just went under.
I don't know if DCI has any right now. They've been trying to gear up for some stamped RPK/Yugoslav AK receivers.

Receivers have pretty much dried up due to the lack of Imbels coming in, FAC going down the tubes and tying up the Coonans, and DSA being stingy about producing/selling receivers only vs. their complete rifles. The last batch of South African kits and the STG-58's pretty much gobbled up what receivers were available.
I have 4 kits waiting for receivers and don't want to go the DSA or Entreprise routes unless it eventually comes to that. Imbels, Coonans, and DSA receivers are all good. Some require a little more work for the build, but nothing significant. Century's latest metric receiver is better than most tend to think. I've built two conversion weapons on them and the only issue was a tight mag well. They are underated IMO and are a good value. They're not the best by any means, but a darn good value for a low buck build.
Only time will tell. I just hope DCI gets back to putting receivers on the market and more Imbels are imported. All of my kits need a type I or 2 receiver.

Damn this isnt looking good.I better start digging under every pebble maybe I'll find one.
The Century cost 128.00. They are guaranteed so i gave them a try. The Imbels are non existent as far as i can tell. Good Luck....
I got one of the last two Century recievers.On its way to my dealers shop.The only other supplier was actual FN and at $300 I refuse to buy it. I'll make the Century work.
Just picked up a new GL Imbel - 2000 PAC. Prices are climbing, but this one was still reasonable. Hard to find, gotta look hard and long.
As far as choices go from the top being best;
1) Imbel - forged receiver (not forged ingot) - best type 3 hands down
2) DSA - forged ingot. Best type 1 and type 2 available
3) DCI - casting. Best of the castings
Did I do that?
When you say the last 2 Century receivers, you mean the last 2 period???
Another couple of places to check out are ARS and Blackwell Industries. Some, if not all of you guys probably know about this already, but falfiles.com is where I found all my parts sources for my FAL.
