I know HT is easy enough to do, but If I just HT hole areas it might make it harder to get consistent blueing later on. And, i've had a couple people tell me it's not necessary on that thickness. Is this true?

I would heat treat the holes just to be safe...Your not going to hurt anything by doing it.
It is an easy procedure to do compared to trying to fix the possible egging that is likely to happen and harder to fix.

I don't know what you are planning on doing, but if you are buying one of the GT 1.6 receivers, i'm certain that they are already heat treated.

You are are talking about a reciever made from a flat and not a production reciver right?
A homemade reciver shuold be HT'd but a factory reciver from Armory...NO

It is a pre-bent blank. So by responses, I'm guessing it's just safer to HT. I plan on hot-dip blueing this one at home. Is there any trick I can do to make sure the blueing will still be uniform (never ht'ed or blued before)? Or, if I just dip it enough times will that be sufficient?

you have to heat treat the ejector, no matter the thickness of the receiver the ejector is going to be the same thickness because of the bolt
