I never tried them due to the oversize wall issue. I do not want to grind my trunions to be honest. If you do not mind that I would say they are fine. one very good aspect they have is all the differant options they offer if you are willing to pay. everything from a flat to a barreled reciever. not bad

Global does not make a 1mm receiver as of yet--they only make a 1.6mm receiver. I'm not aware of them carrying anyone else's receiver either.

I heard the 1.00mm version may be out after Thanksgiving. They are suppose to have the "chicken feet" as well.

They have the correct thickness receivers see this web site.

Has anyone used one of their 1.6mm receivers for a Yugo M92 Krink yet?

I heard how the rear trunion is narrower then a standard underfold and thought maybe this receiver would help with that gap.

Good luck on 5-6 weeks, 5+ months on a custom 5.45 reciever and the answer is always the same 2 more weeks.

You might try ORF. That's where I got my 5.45 Global receiver after waiting for over 2 months and no receiver from GT. The ones at ORF are standard 1.0mm and not parkerized. But it was the nicest GT receiver I have used so far. Very little hand fitting and deburring to do at all.

Sorry I'm new....ORF? (web site?)...I have some patience so I guess I'll wait 5-6 weeks...but after that...well I can be a pretty nasty letter writer to everyone who will listen....I only chose them because it was a recommendation from a AK builder in Ft. Meyers, FL he claims they heat treat the entire receiver properly....I got to trust some one some time...
While I'm on a roll anyone have a recommendation for a inexpensive receiver jig that is easy to use....I plan to try this after I see what is available in pre-bent....I'm new to this so be gentle....thanks to you all this board is really informative....

I orderd a 1mm reciever from the, They make 1mm and 1.6mm versions. I ordered on October 28th and my receiver will make it it out this or next week to my FFL.

3 months!!!!!.....I ordered 2 - 1mm from them last Friday and they told me 45 days turn around...I guess I'll be patient and wait & wait & wait..:) .....I have contacted a local FFL who may have a couple recievers in stock so I can start putting some of my projects together sooner....

Opinions anyone??
I?ve been to ARMORY USA & GLOBAL TRADES CO., 7311 Galveston Road - Suite 260, Houston, Texas 77034.

There just up the road from my home, I purchased a rivet set with bushing there. While I was there I asked to look at the (TYPE 2 - 1.0 mm Receiver, all holes, rails, and magazine well* machined to your specified caliber, center support tube installed. *You specify caliber: 7.62x39 or 5.45x39 $69.99) and was told they aren?t in stock, they have a 5 to 6 week backlog. That was at least one full month ago.

I plan to purchase a trigger group from them and possibly one of there peep sights with windage adjustment 1000 meter one day.

For reference - the average wait time on a 1mm type 2 GT receiver is still running at 2 months plus. The "plus" can be applied to any receiver with special features. That's compiled data from many buyers... not a gripe: remember, it takes a while to get a Lexus too :)
