Guys I will be getting a CENTURY US made receiver (Metric) in the next day or two. It is on a running rifle that has over 500 rounds thru it since the build. I will run it myself to verify it's function.

What would be a fair price to ask for this receiver and what would the intrest level be on this?

THANKS!

LaC

PS: would it be better to offer it here in the auctions area or a flat price on the MP? OR maybe Fun broker?

If it's on a running rifle i would leave it alone - I've got 2 damn fine rifles built on receivers that no body wanted, a Hesse & a Century - Both have always run like Singer sewing machines :D

Normally I would agree with ya IR, BUT this rifle happens to be an ALL MATCHING StG!

So it's getting stripped!

I'd offer $47.00 and 2 rusty Mini-14 mags in trade just to ease the karma!

TDB, I do appreciate the offer BUT I do not think I could sleep at night knowing I had taken advantage of you that way!

Hey LAC, I'll give you $350 for it...........if you throw in the kit! :wink:

Sounds like a good score; got some photos? Are you gonna build this one on a matching Coonan?

That's the plan buddy! http://www.bayoushooter.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=17163&d=1306177170

As you can see there are a few mods that will need to be made, but the finish is excellent.
I will be talking to Connie shortly for the StG receiver and of course this one will be required to sport some BLUE MONSTER special dressing!! ;)
