What brand receiver did Century use for the SAR-1? I bought mine back in 2001.

Um,... Romanian military. In seriousness, the receivers are Romanian from the Cugir factory.

Was this part of the controversy importing receivers that accepted high capacity mags? There are no receiver markings on my rifle other than the electro-pencil "Made in Romania" markings.

I would say no. The current Wasr receivers have 2 less manufacturing steps = cheaper to produce. They have no dimples on the side of the receivers & 1 single stack magwell that is opened up in the US instead of single and double stack cut mag well.

Seems to me the SAR-1 receivers are some of the most authentic AKM receivers of any available to us mortals. I am hanging on to mine.

I bought my first one in '01 as well. Liked it so much I bought two more the next month.

Like elokman, mine are not for sale.

SAR-1 is the closest thing to a Eastern Bloc AKM to ever hit our shores. Assembled in Cugir on the same line as the Romanian military rifles. The only difference in the receiver is that they did not drill the third set of holes for the auto sear. I'll be hanging on to my 2002 SAR-1 for sure.
