    Default Problems with cold steel receivers?

    I saw this over at the files.

    It looks like there are some issues regarding the hole locations on the cold steel blanks.

    I know some of you guys were talking about using these blanks.
    You better double check the location of the marks before you drill.

    Yes, the center punch marks were out of line on some of mine but I just used an Ace template to correct the problem. the mag rough cut out was ok. For me, the ace template is the one to use.

    "Mine were out a whole lot" means nothing... How much were they out? Did the action fail to operate? Did they even test?

    It has been my observation that there is a great deal of tolerance for hole location, so a slight amount shouldn't affect functionality. I've built from several templates and had no problems so far. YMMV.

    Hi Guys-
