I have used one and you have to be a pretty good welder to get it to look right and it really does require a tig welder to do it right. They bend very easy because of the lasor cuts in them.I mig welded mine and had splatter all over the thing by the time I was done and it required a lot of grinding and sanding. I would have to agree with the last post, try an ace bentblack for your first build. Their is one advantage to the lasor flats though. All your magwell cutouts and holes are there already so if you are a good welder, It may be an easier build for you. ak'sr4medoger5 said:Has any one used this type of receiver? Are they any easier to bend?
