Quick question everyone............

I am looking at a preban AR with a Sendra receiver. A friend of mine ( FFL Dealer ) mentioned that they are cast and subject to cracking after alot of use.
Can anyone help me out with some information??

Pro or Con, Buy or stay away?

Thank you,

Steve

I will only buy recievers that are forged! Forged recievers are much stronger than the cast ones. I have seen a few pictures of cracked and broken cast recievers here.

Every Sendra receiver I've ever seen was forged and, they are one of the more desirable receiver platforms for a RR M16.

I have a Sendra preban. Great gun I love it. The lower parts have a somewhat iffy rep for quality but you can replace them about 50 bucks. Mine is that famous purple color but I love the gun.

Would having a very low serial # xxx2xx be a good or a bad thing ??? Thanks for the replies..

The information that I have states that the post-ban recievers have a circle milled into the side of the magwell, this is unconfirmed.

[url]http://www.ar15.com/content/legal/serialNumberList.html[/url] Nesard See "Sendra" below. Sendra Post-ban receivers have a circle milled into the side of the magwell. They were originally bead-blasted to a non-glare finish. All others are pre-ban. (This is unverified info…) Also, they used to be NESARD. Rumored to have been owned by Dick Drasen (currently M&A Parts) and produced lowers only out of Barrington, Illinois. No complete guns were sold (again, unverified info).
