They came in yesterday and look to be metric top covers which have been chopped on the front with the clip guide and reenforcing back strip spot welded on. Excellent looking and Excellent finish(phosphated).They have part of the left guide milled out about 2cm long and therefore will slide too far fwd in my Imbel reciever w/o tightening. I cut the tabs off and flaired the cover to get it tight on the receiver. I also did the israeli trick and tweaked the guides of the cover to upset metal to make the fit tighter. It works fine with FN stripper clips.If you have an inch receiver they will fit fine (I think) but might be a little loose and require some flairing. I don't have any inch guns but all the inch top covers I've used on my metric guns were real tight so I think this part might be a little loose. No big deal though.
