The ones JDI is working on? I know Dave has stated he hopes to get it done for the 55x. I've also heard someone is working on PE57 receivers

Well,

Hopefully they are receivers for 7.62x51 rifles.

What's wrong with the original caliber?

Congrats on the sale! Are your receiver shells surface hardened like the originals?

Yes, I believe they are furnace brazed/treated just like the originals. I cannot remember where the test dot is, though, I would have to re-look at them. The new and improved versions will look even nicer (not that these are bad).

That's more than twice what I paid for a real PE57 w/all back in 2002.
