Hey guys, what makes a dummy receiver a dummy receiver. I know it sounds obvious but when I was on the Centerfire site they have a pic of one. Has anyone ever purchased one?

Isn't it on Centerfire's website where it says that the dummy guns are built on polymer receivers?? I am reasonably certain that they are some kind of plastic.

I think I am a dummy reciever because I ordered from joeken. they charged my card weeks ago and do not even have any parts in stock. I think this makes me a dummy reciever , I have never recieved anything and my money is gone too.
true but a joke at the same time..... haha ,, hoy

Hotbarrel...Here is how I solved my problem with them. Called CC company and then as instructed filled out a form they sent me. Guess what, after trying to get the problem resolved myself they got it taken care of in no time. It is the ONLY way-trust me...been there - done that

erikk has it right, when vendors get a call from the CC company telling them to make it right or they won't be able to use that CC network it works wonders.

I just read another thread in another AK forum where a guy called Lois at Centerfire and convinced her to sell him some of the dummy receivers. And he said Lois told him that they should be available for retail soon. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to give our pal Lois a call?

How hard is the polymer?

Strength and hardness depends on the type of Polymer and if it?s had additives like glass or metal etc(better ask). For stuff like a dummy receiver that doesn?t need any real strength, (because it?s just for looks) most companies will just take regrind of different colors and types, mix them together, color it black and mold the parts from that. It's a good way to get rid of some of that scrap plastic that otherwise you'd have to give away or pay to have removed. I have 27 years in molding and we always where looking for work like this to fill the slow times and to get rid of old material. But remember that more and more pistol frames and other gun parts are being made from Polymers. So if a part is made from the right Polymer and from virgin material you can make an unbelievably strong part that in many ways is as good or better than steel. It?s all up to how much you want to pay.

Wonder if it would be possible to make a receiver from strictly plastic or some hard polymer? Not necessarily the dummy receiver because that is not what it is made for, but I think it would be interesting to see someone try this.

It has to be plastic.
Notice the fake rivets, no hammer pin hole, funky selector slot
