    How do the Enterprise Recievers rate, I have a kit, but would rather not spend the $400+ on a DSA reciever.

    I do not have personal experience with all these receivers, I'm just relaying what I was able to find on the FAL files. From the general consensus over there, they rate this way.

    1) Imbel
    2) DSA
    3) Nodakspud/DCI/Coonan
    4) Enterprise
    5) Century

    The DSA and Nodak seem to rate very close to one another and some folks would reverse those to positions on the list.

    You have to remember the Imbel is not a compliance part...
    I have 2 Entreprise receiver builds, no problem out of them at all.
    This was when G1 kits were $99 and Entreprise 03 rec. were $165, gone are those days...

    In my opinion based on years as a FAList, years as a FAL vendor, and just a FAL builder and shooter....

    1) Imbel (real deal)
    1) DSA ( ...as good as it gets,..and AMERICAN)

    Wait for #1.



    PS,..a CAST RECEIVER in MY RIFLE?......RIGHT!

    MGS does not have a great reputation.
    I have never dealt with them personally, but I've read a lot of complaints about them on the various building forums. Proceed at your own risk.
