So, I think I'm gonna buy a few flats in anticipation of future products, but I see that you can get them with or without trunion holes... Would it be safe just to get all of them WITH trunion holes or is there too likely a chance that they wont fit any parts kits I later buy?

It is very likely that you will have to elongate the holes if you buy predrilled flats. Some people don't like to do that, so the undrilled flats are available.

The alternative (if you are or have access to a good welder) is to remove the rivets then weld the holes and grind the surface of the trunnions level.  Use the holes on a pre-drilled flat as templates for the new rivet holes you drill into the trunnions.  It takes a but more time but guarantees the best match-up between receiver and trunnion and no "egged" holes.

No holes.  Different trunions have them in different spots.  What if you get a sweet deal on a chineese barrel assembly in the future ? Then your holes are all wrong.

My vote goes for no holes.

No holes wins the day. Thanks for your input guys.

Does the no hole plan also include 100% receivers, should they also be purchased without holes?

for the most part yes no holes is the way to go on the 100% also
dci makes some that are rifle specific and are close still need alittle fitting but they do take less work

No holes is still the way to go. It's a little more work but when you are finished you have a better product. IMHO
