    I assume you are talking about that loooong thread over there bashing His post regarding his hand finished receiver. He never got a fair shake there.

    While I'm not crazy about some of his safety procedures, He was a victim of mob mentality. The first person to respond to his post bashed him and the others all piled on. Even the few posters who were trying to give him a chance were ridiculed by the mob.
    I doubt that most of them have ever actually BUILT anything. Screwing a barrel into a finished receiver and popping in a locking shoulder is NOT building, it's assembling. FALs are incredibly easy to assemble, nothing like bending a flat (or finishing bent blank) and actually building an AK.

    I have finished two 80% FAL receiver castings with a mill and lathe. It is not an easy task even with the proper machine tools. To finish one by hand into a functioning rifle is a monumental feat. More power to you for even trying and to actually doing it.

    Default thank you again

    sharpshooter

    thank you also after all the grief I got at FALFiles I stopped posting there, 7,62 was right some really great peple there defended me and were shot down gunplumber was one he is a pioneer and great gunsmith he understood the talent I have or gift,
    for the record I only used the JB to help set the mag feed area until I got it fine tuned there is no more JB weld on this receiver it was a temporary fix. I should also note I did not have a 100% FFL receiver to copy from only a few stubs from barrel take offs
    thank you all for your support

    as far a CeeKay who is he, he has yet to show me or anyone else a real build here or on any other site, probably because there never will be one.

    there is a difference between growing the hay and shoving the shit
