Entreprise G1 receiver
Well, I promised you guys a review on the Entreprise G1 receiver and here tis.
The receiver has some machining marks on it. They are nothig I can't live with. They are really hard to see. The finish is a dark almost black bluing. Black oxide prehaps? It almost matches the finish on my G1 kit. The markings are deep and clear and look very offical. The serial number is dot matrix and looks cheesy.
They got my custom serial number wrong but that is not entirely their fault. T and P sound a lot alike on the phone. I can live with that error because I don't want to send the receiver back and have to wait some more.
Barrel timing was really weird. The G1 barrel stopped turning at 6:00. It was not all the way up on the receiver face and the chamber face was not hitting the secondary shoulder. We went ahead and torqued into place. I really don't know why it stopped at the 6:00 position. It seemed to torque with out any problems. Came right up to 12:00 and we got it timed right. Strange.
It took a .257 locking shoulder. Before I tore it down, I had a .261 shoulder in the Williams receiver. Not bad.
The BHO and mag release screw was a little tight and didn't want to bottom out. I suspect that there was junk in the threads. I had the same problem with an Imbel.
Everything else went together with out a hitch.
I am very happy with the receiver.
I shot about 15 rounds through it and the first two did not want to go into battery. I had no oil on the carrier rails. The last twelve rounds shot with out problems.
So I can safely say:
THE FORMER WILLIAMS G1 IN NOW THE NEW ENTREPRISE G1! IT LIVES AGAIN TO HAUNT THE RIFLE RANGES OF THE AREA. BEWARE.
I would have not qualms about buying another Entreprise receiver. And I will when I get ready to build my L1A1.
Texas, it's a state of mind!!!!
