    Default AK-47 Stamped Receivers - Best Place to Buy

    I am looking for 2 stamped receivers (Romy G and Russian/Bulgy kits), preferably with trunnion holes drilled.

    Looking for advice on the best place to buy, preferably able to send to FFL for transfer rather than having a shop buy for me.

    I used an Ewbank's receiver for my amd65 build when I first started in this hobby. I then found out about Nodak Spud. I've used them for a Romy G build, Polish Tantal build, and recently a PSL build. They are the gold standard for 100% ak receivers. I plan on using them for my m92 build coming up soon. You really can't go wrong with them IMO.

    I ran across some stamped receivers on Century's site for $60, so I decided to give them a try. Was a little tentative at first, but what the hell!

    Picked them up from my local FFL tthis afternoon and got to work on the first one after dinner. I had already done the prep work on the Romy kit, and it is a screw build, so there is not a lot needed.

    The receivers are nicely parkerized and look great. They are single hook trigger receivers and I only had a double hook on hand, so I cut out the slot for it. The trunnion holes in front need to be drilled out slightly for two of the three, so I will get that done this evening. Went ahead and assembled it w/o the two screws and did fit check for the mag and cycled some dummy rounds. Mag fit is good and snug, with minimal "AK" play. Rounds cycle perfectly.

    I should be able to get it ready to test fire on Thursday an a nearby indoor range. After that, will disassemble and prep/paint the receiver.

    NodakSpud is the way to go but you may have to wait for a run to be made. Worth it though!!
