Been measuring the OOW and comparing it to a romy receiver.

I have two concerns!

1. If you square the receiver to the front of the trunnion, I have a gap from carrier rails to lugs of trunnion of a full .270.

2. And when I measure from tip of receiver to the ejector, I am long .087.
So I take it I should go by that and file off .087 from the front so as to square off the receiver with the trunnion.

so now I would be left with a gap from carrier rails to lugs by about .183.

Is that o.k.?

The way I do it is to install the trigger guard and mag catch assy first then insert a mag and move the front trunion back using a c clamp to hold it in place untill the mag inserts nicely, not to tight or loose. and try all of your mags as they vary.

Thanks Robert,
You should be proud of yourself, The blanks I have bought from you are better fitting than this new oow receiver.
I am not kidding! I use some good calipers and allways compare to the commie receivers. Yours are the same. I got different measurements across the board on this other, but it is close enough to use.

So Robert sells blanks?

How much and what has/hasn't been done to them.

Those numbers look way off. Are you sure the receivers are for the same caliber?

I'm a relative newby here, but I've been on the AR-15 side for a while. I'm using a OOW receiver for my first build and comparing it to a Norinco. It's come out pretty even so far. I have a pre-bent blank standing by. In the mean time, I've got to say I'm impressed with your website Robert. I'll e-mail you about sending payment for a blank and rails.
