Century L1A1 uppers on Gunbroker

What's the story on $200 uppers on Gunbroker? They're not selling, so I'm thinking must be something wrong.

Me: The thinking is strong with this one.

Obi: You do not want to buy those receivers.

Is it something that can be tweaked, or are they flat out garbage? Anyone do a build with one?

maybe anyone with a full on machine shop. Why else do you think at two to three bills they still aren't selling? Buyer beware mate.

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

The Century items your referencing are possible reject / flawed that date back to Sept 2009. They sat in a bucket / box / pile till 2016 and sold potentially as scrap.

You would spend large $ to get it corrected.
Or if you had the self capabilities, and equipment, a large portion of frustrated time.
Or smile and say . . . . . PASS

( above is for Century L1A1 INCH uppers currently on Broke me ) ( it will NOT take inch mags )

I bought one of the metric variants this seller has - had to install my own ejector block (no big deal). The only fault when assembling was the feed ramp. The feed ramp directed the point of the bullet right at the face of the barrel (below the chamber). I built up the feed ramp with silver solder ( hard solder) and it functions perfectly. Now the nose of the bullet is directed at the center of the chamber when it is stripped from the mag.
