Have One Due Next Week

I talked with Andrew earlier this week and my AK74 receiver was supposed to ship yesterday and arrive at my FFL mid-late next week. When I receive it, I will post how it looks and if the holes meet spec. According to Andrew these are supposed to be the best on the market. I have a like new Bulgarian kit just waiting on the receiver.

I would be willing to bet these are the same a Vulcan receivers.. I also belive that these are being pressed out from Tapco flats by some minion that Joekin was able to get a manufacturing license for..

It is kinda wierd.
Joeken said he has tested the HORN receiver against the Vulcan, and the OOW.
Yet he has no pictures of the HORN receiver.
I basically called his bluff on where the HORN receiver is, why hasn't he taken a picture of one.
He claims he has sold hundreds of them and that they are "flying" off the shelves.
Kinda wierd that I have not heard anyone build a ak with one.

I agree that chances are it is a TAPCO flat (which is really a VULCAN flat) that someone is bending.
That is the reason that the trunion holes are in the receiver.
Why else would you make a receiver that had trunion holes in it already.

Use to be Vulcan making their flats but I dont think so any more. Not to mean that Vulcan isnt making flats anymore because they are. I understand that a few companies went together to find a new manufacturer for flats and they were one of those companies.

LMAO Joeken is try to distance themselves from somebody with a bad reputation? Thats like the Kettle calling the Pot black. They might as well just go out of buisness.

I cannot find a place called Horn's custom rifles or Horn's custom anything anywhere in the entire country. I tried every search engine and the Yellow pages and cant find nothing .I doubt they exist.

I spoke with VanHorn[last name],very nice person,has nothing to do with recievers.
Pre-drilled trunion holes bad sign.Read evaluation by Jimmy of amory U.S.A.,very clear
call that they are not right.Joeken response was they are not made to compete with
Global standard,therefore cheaper.Called Global,said they will have 1mm by christmas.
Problem solved?Hope so.

Yesterday I posted on the Joeken forum at gunsnet and asked if the Horn company was so famous why hasnt anybody heard of them. Today I see they deleted that post. That speaks volumes to me.

He is selling the heck out of these receivers yet I have not seen one post from anyone that has actually received one. This is not a slam but you would thing that someone would have posted something by now if they actually had one. They can't even post pictures of they and other members have offered to help them post them. Curious.

Joking is full of shit. Trust nothing that comes out of the mouth of any of their employees and trust no product that they peddle and nobody else carries.
