I tried to fit the Romak 3 trunion in the receiver I received from from Centerfire Systems. No matter how I try, the trunion wants to go in at this "cocked" angle. It looks like the contours of the trunion do not match those of the trunion.
Anyone else have this problem?

The middle hole on the stop does not line up on either side. I will try to send pic tommorow, its late I am really frustrated with the damn thing.

Maybe I'm blind, but I can't really see it. Sounds like it is obviously off if the rivet holes don't line up, though.

Is the trunion supposed to be identical on both sides? Email the picture to Centerfire and see what they say. If the trunion is supposed to be symetrical it looks like you got a bad trunion if not the receiver is warped.

It realy looks as if you may be best off sending it back for a replacement. If you got it from C.F. they should take care of you. A short delay is better than many years of it beeing screwed up. I have C.F. romak from a kit and it is very nice no trouble.

I see it now. Looks like right side rail is a bit higher than left, hence the gap between the receiver and trunnion.

I have seen this happen when I test fitted the trunions on my Arsenal receivers. The thicker metal cause the bowing and warping.

Could your receiver be one of the new thicker types? If so you may need to modify the trunion.

I think the reciever is made in Romania . it should fit the trunion rite.
for the price of a Romak you should be happy with it. heck I would return a 3 dollar lamp to wally world if I did not like it ,, rite for three hundred pluss dollars you should be happy . lois will take care of you give her a call honestly
