Great I would be in for a set. What is the legality of this project? Will the receiver be considered US made? Also what abou the "once a machinegun alwayse a machinegun" atf ruling, would using old receiver stubs be a violation?
The receiver has been destroyed, you will be rebuilding it and it will be a US part. I need to talk with you so we can figure out if it will work. Your email server keeps rejecting my mail to you.

VZ I just goy an e-mail form you. I think my question might benefit the entire group though. Can these sideplates be used to rebuild a russian milled kit? Also what kind of rails will be provided?
Gene several more attempts have/are failing. Keeps saying your blocking me b/c of my using yahoo.
The top rail is machined and is made slightly larger than needed so you can fit it to your particular gun, I find that about 15 minutes with a file or dremel is sufficent. The lower rails will be supplied by the user and stamped rails will work, just trim to fit your particular demill. As for fitting kits other than yugo , I don't know. Can someone email me front and rear receiver stub widths (mic'ed?). I would assume they will work but if your demill cut the lightening cuts you will need to have these remachined by a machine shop for best results after the kit is assembled. Also if ANY part of your locking lugs are cut/ damaged, buy a milled receiver not these plates.

Will thay work on a zastava yugo milled rec. from a RPK kit.And do you have picks of the plates
Depending on eaxactly which model you have, you will get this or something very similar. There are minor differeces in each model. You are responsible for cleaning the slag off your stubs, measuring and cutting the plates to the correct length, welding in the plates and a set of stamped rails and filing the welds smooth. There are some modifications to some other parts to ensure proper operation. You also have to locate and drill the pivot holes. It sounds like a lot but it's not bad. Tools needed at a minimum; hacksaw or cutoff saw, dremmel, drill press, welded (tig or mig with gas) sliding micrometer and a nice file.
look here for pics of a RPK finished with these (yes its a yogo)
