I have been waiting patiently for over 2 months now for 5 custom serial numbered 100% rec from GreenLight Arms and after much aggrevation, threatning, and cussing this is what I get!! A monkey with a hammer could have done better than this!!! Since Chris won't answer the phone, take messages, answer emails, or any other form of communication I have been dealing with Blackwell Industries to get these recs Chris (CWToyota) owed me from an original order back in June. It is NO fault of Blackwell, they have been very professional and very helpfull and were also taken by this jackass butcher. I am no less returning them (to Greenlight Arms) for a full refund!! Don't EVER buy or send Greenlight (aka REDLIGHT) Arms any money!!








STAY AWAY FROM GREENLIGHT ARMS!!!

I am a monkey with a hammer. I did a better job. I wouldn't sell my receivers.

Maybe he's in league with JOKEen!
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 5:41:00 AM EDT
Damn. Those are some F'ed up receivers.. Chris should be ashamed, he has put out a product worse the Vulcan, or joeken has ever dared sell.. Those frickin things would need soo much work to build on, the should be considered 80% shells....

Bad juju Chris, you might have been able to pull out of the "RPK Debacle", but now this... You might want to consider finding a good job now..

Wow, and I felt like a monkey with a hammer with a few of the dings I put into my latest build... But man, my home rolled flat looks a whole lot better then this thing....

Aren't you glad they had months to practice before they sent you a receiver after they did some practicing? Perhaps they were waiting on a used flat bending jig and a sale at HF for a press and spot welder too...

That is just awful...

DAYUUUUMMMMM!!!!

My first home-bent receiver done @ _Disconnector_'s last build party looks better than that!!
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 7:26:00 AM EDT
You are ALL right.............can't believe ANYONE would send out shit like that and expect anyone to be happy!! What's so bad I GOT 5 LIKE THAT!!!
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 8:50:29 AM EDT
we did some at the okie build party that were way better than that, , ours were perfect.

I folded one up with a fricken HAMMER (no jig) and it wasn't much worse that that.

Wow. That's terrible.

Sorry you got hosed. Those receivers are total crap. I really hope you can get your money back.

No F-in way, you got to be kidding me.....
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 12:32:59 PM EDT
That's an amazing failure of quality control. And letting 5 receivers go out like that in the same order....WOW! His rivet boltcutter tool is A+ quality, I can't believe these came from the same guy. Best of luck getting this junk returned.

You should get Elite FireArms to do custom Russian selector markings on them.

Link Posted: 9/21/2005 1:15:37 PM EDT
That looks like a Tapco flat, especially with the selector dimple and locator holes in the bottom.

I would be PISSED.

It might work with a polish kit.

Tapco should be pissed.

Those look like crap, at least you got your money back. I did one deal with him and would never again.
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 7:35:05 AM EDT
dude what receivers did you order? yugo m70 receivers? they dont have bulged trunions - screw the rest of the stuff. those are regular flats. . i CAN"T beleive that is for real. is it april fools day? i mike
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 8:28:22 AM EDT
Chris posted on another board that the first batch of M70 flats he got back from the laser cutting shop were cut out of spec. He was going to trash them. Several guys offered to take the rejects off his hands to see if they could somehow be salvaged for their own use. I, for one, need some proof that these were delivered as 100% receivers and somehow "slipped" through Chris' quality control. I mean Ray Charles can see that they look like crap. Chris would have to be the stupidest SOB in the world to send out something like that. Maybe he is, as I don't know him, but I don't know Mr. Krink, either.
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 10:19:13 AM EDT
WOW! I have seen these Receivers at the WAC Show built up on Romanian Kits. Some just didn't look right at all, and I sure wasn't going to buy one after careful inspection. I along with many were involved with that RPK Receiver fiasco. Thank GOD I didn't get one after all! Your Receivers look like SHIT, and after inspecting the ones at the Show, am convince these are indeed TAPCO Flats, bent by someone who obviously doesn't know what in the Hell he's doing, other than taking Peoples $$, and not responding for months on end. I think Greenlight is someone's idea of a SICK JOKE! I will NEVER recommend them to anyone, period!
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 11:02:17 AM EDT
dude0 they dont have the bulged trunion at all. they cant be 100% receivers for yugos WITHOUT the bulged trunions.

BULGED YUGO TRUNION- that original pic from the post

Dude read the frigin post, he never said they were yugo receivers.. Chris posted a long while back that he was working on AKM receivers as well..
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 11:22:07 AM EDT
I've been waiting since June for receivers and tools that I purchased thru a group buy on Weaponeer. Think I'll ask for a refund before they are shipped.
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 3:48:57 PM EDT
I was pretty happy with my Armory receiver. It leaned a little to one side and had a few burrs on the rails. Aside from that, excellent.
DPH is now selling "Ewbanks" receivers that might be ok. After the review of them, I wouldn't buy them, but some people were saying that they would.

You and I do not share the same definition for "Excellent"
Link Posted: 9/27/2005 6:26:32 AM EDT
Compare it to any other US receiver, and it's excellent. The pics of the Ewbanks showed the axis pin holes were deformed from the bending. You've seen what was posted in this thread. A little lean and a few burrs are excellent compared to the other options!

Help me out here. Are we talking about Armory USA going out of business? Or DPH or Ewbanks? Or is "Armory" refering to another company?

The reason I ask is that the receiver I got from Armory USA *was* in excellent shape, no leaning or deformed areas at all. Everything fit like a glove. I was thinking about ordering from them again.
