I have n OOW receiver that is spot heat treated. Do I need to get the entire receiver heat treated? I know this has been discussed before and who is the one thru this board doing this service?

Based on some research (and a carefully-performed Rockwell hrdness test on one of the OOW units two I bought a couple of weeks ago), you're good to go. Don't forget the basic Kalashnikov design was menat to be built under fairly minimal industrial conditions -- basic heat treatable "mild steel" of ~1mm thickness, hardened and tempered only where it's significantly stressed, will handle more rounds than you're ever likely to feed it.
