    I went and saw the process at Joeken. The actually had to build frames to hold the receivers in place when they heat treated them. And yes there was a certain amount of scaling I saw on the heat treated ones. I'm not sure why the safety is a mismatch on the receiver cover but this would mean that the axis hole is off which would be a big thing. As far as burring, I purchased 10 GT recievers in 5.45X39 and they all came with burrs on the inside of the holes. It only took a minute to clean them up.

    I recently received a batch of Ewbanks receivers directly from Joeken. The S/Ns are in the 002500 range. The S/Ns of the receivers that I reviewed previously in this thread were in the 001750 range. I have examined 2 of the newer batch and here is what I see.

    THINGS THAT HAVE GOTTEN WORSE
    None

    THINGS THAT HAVENT CHANGED
    The trigger pin hole is still slightly stretched at the bottom. You may want to reshape it with a small hammer.
    The right lower rail must be trimmed to allow mag insertion.
    The ejector hook must be trimmed to allow bolt passage.
    They still have the drain holes (jig locating holes) in the bottom.
    I have had no problem with the position of the selector hole.
    I have seen no significant warping.

    THINGS THAT HAVE IMPROVED
    They are uniformly blasted and look good. They come oiled and wrapped in plastic. There was no residual grit from the blasting.
    There are no significant burrs on the underside of the upper rails. The edges of the rails are sharp though. You can avoid unnecessary bloodshed if you touch them with a file first thing.
    The distance between the upper rails has been increased by about .030" by reducing the width of the upper rails by .015. The previous receivers were tight and sometimes required trimming to allow bolt carrier movement. This makes the distance between the upper rails about .010 wider (.997" at the center support) than a SAIGA (.987") that I use as a reference standard. I think this is a good dimensional choice for a receiver intended to universally fit various kits.

    They are suppose to be making some changes (eubanks) but I don't know.
    I am pretty much going to stick with Armory USA (global trades) receivers from now on. This has NOTHING to do with the quality of the Eubanks receivers, but has to do with resale value.
    I weapon built on a OOW or Armory USA (global trades) receiver is work over $100 more then one built on a EUBANKS.

    Don't get me wrong, I still have 5 or 6 Eubanks recievers left.
    They will be used to build Cheap Romys. $200 Ak's even with the required US PARTS
