Have a picture? Was under the impression that they only made them in type 1.

I sold some stainless Greyslake receivers maybe 4 or 5 years ago for $735 each. Sold some lake barrington stainless ones for between $595 and $695 around the same time. But you could still get stainless lowers then.

People pay a premium for a non-heat-treated receiver?

One would be better off nickel-plating a carbon steel, that is, if one actually wants to shoot it.

But I have a chrome-plated charging handle if anyone wants to go that route.

getting stainless alloys up to 285 BHN and still machinable is a bit of a trick. color me suspicious. i'd have to hit it with a spectrotrometer and a few different hardness testers before i'd shoot it, and would really like to section and macro-etch one for grain structure analysis after seeing the manufacturing plan and QIP.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
