My son is thinking of buying an AR-15 with this receiver marking. Has anyone seen these in the past? Thanks in advance for any info.

SGW is a good lower. A friend's first AR-15 was a preban SGW in CAR-15 configuration. It shot like a champ. He wound up selling it during a cash crunch and wishes that he still had it. No complaints.

Susi, is it a Milled receiver gun? They are reportedly very high quality. AFARR

Actually, all AR recievers are milled. Perhaps you meant to ask if it was a FORGED reiever as opposed to CAST? I've got an SGW preban. I like it very much.

GT-- Actually, I ment Milled. Some of the SGW's were milled from bar stock. Most guns are forged to rough shape or cast to rough shape, then finish milled. I have one at the dealer now that I have not seen yet that is all Milled--I understand that it is significantly thicker than the other two machining methods. AFARR
