I've purchased a Hungarian AMD-63 Replacement Parts Kit from Centerfiresystems.com. I've been wondering what the best option is for a receiver, I've seen ACEARMS. :ak47: has a blank formed Undrilled reciever and JoeKen.com has a marked drilled flat. I am inclined to try one of each and see which one is easier.. I can get access to a metal sheer press and have someone cut the flat so I can then oxy-weld it back together. The pre-formed one from Ace requires drilling and milling for the mag, trigger, rivets, and trunion.
Any thoughts from GURUs who've made one up this way and what the easiest manner of "doing it" is.. :help:

ND, it depends on what you are set up to work with. Do you have a flat bending jig? You mentioned you have access to a metal shearer. So I assume you would cut the flat with holes up and reweld it. This is an option, but if you haven't done much welding, it actually might be a real PITA. Not to mention that your cuts and heights would need to be fairly accurate. If you're not cut out for the work, the ACE might be a good choice. It too involves some work, but mainly only drilling and filing. That is what most of us started with. It wasn't until recently that we had the capability of bending flats into real receviers. By the way, as far as I know the "Joeken" flats are actually Tapco flats. I don't know how much they go for there but you can buy them from Tapco for around $20 or less. I think they might have some ones with a little rust on them for around $12. I would be very careful dealing with Joeken. Good luck. Sounds like you've got a nice kit to work with. Did you buy it recently?

Yosuthnmasa is right on the money.
If you go with a flat, get it from Tapco or DPH arms (a site sponsor hint-hint) stay far away from Jerkin.

I bought the AMD about 3 months ago, when Centerfire was having a sale. I am getting a point where I want to built it now..

You dont have to look to hard to find me....I'm always lurking somewhere. We are finally starting to see the end of the waiting list for the guys who have been waiting to get their jigs. We are getting 10 more on Monday to ship out on Tuesday and after 80 jigs.......we are finally caught up. It looks like I may finally get to put them on my website for people to buy.
