what material did use use to build your receiver? maybe i can get you some guides for temperature/color.



Its the bent-metal.com 4130 blank.  I had planned to go red, quench, then take it up to blue... hopefully without any warping.

I did this tonight as an experiment... what the heck its just a $25 blank.  The receiver didn't warp at all but a couple of the holes in the lower rails (for hammer and center support clearance) seemed to shift a little.  

I did some filing there and the metal was definitely hardened.
