I think the guy at "The Gu n Shop" in Lilburn area carries them. Check gunbroker for them. He adverts as Ton80

Here you go- Doesn't say they're OOW, but he can tell you for sure.

That's actually a Hesse receiver. You definitely don't want that.

Actually, the Hesse/Vulcan Receivers are good to go. I've built several on them and if you go into the AK forums you'll see that many others have as well. I think the problem with Hesse/Vulcan are the monkeys who assemble the completed rifles. Its a folded piece of sheet metal, at least they can get THAT right.

My only concern would be that they are heat treated correctly. There is a guy here locally (ATLGA) that had a Hungarian that was not heat treated properly and the rivets are wallowing out the holes in the receiver.

I got an FFL in Forsyth that can receive them.

Stay away from the Hesse/ Vulcan Reciever. I built an AK on it and ran into some problems. Hole locations were off, and you will have to do your own heatreating...especially the ejector.

I used a Global Trades 1.6 mm reciever for my last build. As long as you are able to narrow your trunions you should not have any issues with it.
