    Default Non dimpled AK receiver needed

    Does anyone know a place I can find a AK receiver with no dimples???? (P.M. me)
    Hell, I'd even use a flat if I had too.
    Or, does someone have one stashed???

    I want this for a 45acp build. The dimples make the receiver too narrow for a GG mag.

    I might have a flat YOU can use Ill look . I just cut them form 4140 I get from air craft spruce

    Its pretty easy to dedemple them if there not heat treated .

    I just used a really big c clamp. I dont think I even used heart although you could . I did that on a 243 win build were I used G3 mags . ll post a link to some of the build if I can find it . It was pretty easy to make them flat an smooth .

    DO cold steel solutions have demples ??? they old ones didnt I think .

    Hmmmm? I have a big C clamp and a Polish blank. (I just hate making AK receivers though.)

    I did some research and Marsh Hawk Arms made non dimpled receivers, but they seem to have went M.I.A.
    I don't have any GG mags or a magwell at this time, but I did find some specs.
    Magwell O.D. 1.7 X 1.2 http://www.weaponeer.net/uploads/fil...2_Drawings.pdf
    Mags O.D. 1.550 X 1.085 http://www.uzitalk.com/forums/showth...grease-gun-mag

    Dimpled Receiver I.D. 1.032
    Receiver I.D. 1.250

    Looks like if I can squeeze the dimples to .025 I'll be in good shape.

    I would thing with a little heat an big clamp you could remove the demples complety .

    Hopefully the above mention receiver Sprat has will fit your needs.

    1biggun,
    Those are some really good ideas. Thanks.
    When we start making 9mm bolts, I'm going to steal one and open up the face to 45acp.
    I wanted to design this weapon for 45acp originally, but that idea was rejected.
    I'd like to make the weapon in several calibers now, like 9mm, 45acp and a .22 version that takes 10/22 mags.
    I just need to get the 9mm version to market first.

    Merry Christmas!
