Say you've got a really nice AMD65 kit with all matching numbers. Say you're "rolling your own" receiver to build it up on. Say that, even though you don't legally have to, you "want" to put an identifying serial number on the receiver.

Is it Kosher to use the same "matching" number for the receiver as is on the other "matching" parts in the kit?

Not as a means of trying to "fool" anybody or anything like that (it's gonna be pretty obvious that it ain't a "factory" receiver), but just because you want it to still all be "matching" when you're finished. I mean you're never gonna be "selling" the thing anyway, so what would it matter?

Just curious . . . . . Doug . . . . .

If you have the means... I would make it match!

I think it would be nice. Heck, there's a company out there that will sell you an AK receiver with the number you specify.

I agree. Anyone should know that the receiver is not "factory". And the matching numbers just adds a nice finishing touch.

I think that by doing this you are simply guaranteeing that you are using a serial number that is a duplicate of another receiver out there somewhere??
