    Default Best 7.62 Receiver for build?

    Who has the best 1mm receiver that is hardened for a Yugo Krink build? I would also like to use that same receiver for the other 9 various kits I have squirreled away.

    -Thanks

    ditto. Use the global trades 1.6mm if you have access to a mill or surface grinder. It takes 20 minutes and is as solid as a milled. If you don't then get a global trades 1mm.

    I am a big fan of the 1mm GT receivers. REally nice.

    GT 7.62 is the favorite in my book. Not as happy with their 5.45 though.

    BTW - grapevine has it that they have a new shop manager in house - Andre' Varin's replacement. IMHO, they have a few quality issues to resolve to make their products elevate to the "outstanding" level


    Did I do that?

    The issue I have with the 5.45 is that from what I understand (talking with a few people at GT) is that when Ivan designed the bolt rails there was not enough allowance made for 5.45 version. The 5.45 receiver would have a wider lower rail (rung) such that the narrower space between the lower rung on the bolt rails would be the same width as the width of the mag opening in the bottom of the receiver. In other words the width of between the space of the lower rungs of the bolt rails should be the same width as the mag opening in the bottom of the receiver. The 5.45 space between the lower rung rails is approx 0.060 wider than that of the mag opening in the receiver. If the bolt rail lower rungs were wider in design this problem would not exist for the 5.45. Slide in a magazine into their 5.45 receiver and you can easily see a large gap between the side of the magazine and the lower bolt rail rung.

    The problem does not exist for the 7.62 since the openings are wider and the design accommodates for these dimensions - the space between the lower rungs is the same as the width of the mag opening.

    BTW - Had problems with roundness on axis pins on the 7mm (left hand) side of the receiver on both the 5.45 and the 7.62. Seems they have had difficulty milling thru the "crows feet" and maintaining a nice round hole. Problem doesnt' seem to exist on the 1.6mm receivers - no crow's feet

    BTW 2 - They seem to have resolved their problems with letting warped receivers (due to heat treating) out


    Did I do that?
