View Full Version : 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.

I have worked out the problem with the locations holes being off on the blanks. My customers seem pleased with the results. Here is what Leper had to say:
i sent my old cs reciever back to cold steel on 8 aug, a month and 2 hurricanes later, i recieved a beauty in the mail today. nice square corners, even surfaces, true, square, ect. thanks for the greatly improved product, and i would have no problem recomending one to anybody. thanks again or you can go to see what Chad Gassaway had to say about his replacement blanks http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3525&highlight=coldsteel. I am always willing to help to correct any problems, I just need to hear about them.
