B-west both imported whole guns, and imported parts kits and built guns on their own receivers.  The wholly imported guns are regular AKs built by the usual list of suspects overseas.  The US receiver guns are reportablly soft around the pin holes and they get worn oblong after a while.  

It would be best to avoid the B-west US built receivers.  They are all 7.62x39 IIRC.

I don't know of other B-west models, but the BWK-92 (a wholly imported B-west .223 Norinco) is just as good as any other Chinese built AK.  No problem with heat treat there.
