Looking @ picking up a ORF G3 w/ a stamped JLD reciever. It also has a stamped lower instead of plastic. Is this a good thing ? What are the advantages/ disadvantages ?

Umm, disadvantages of the system or the rifle you are looking at?

The system has a few disadvantages. 1. No bolt hold open. AKA you gotta jack the bolt back to reload the gun when empty. Not a big deal, but the bolt is a beotch to jack back.

2. Magazine release sucks. I have gotten it to the point that I can reload my G3K as fast as anything else (about 1 second.), but it still sucks. the originals had a flapper that would drop the mag right in front of the trigger guard, but it's only sometimes there now.

3. Mounting a scope? Suck. It's expensive to get either the good ARMS or HK mount, and the B&T isn't much cheaper.

As for the rifle, ORF makes the best. You won't get any trouble off of it usually, and if you do Todd will fix it.
