I am a poor bored machinist with a full machine
shop (cnc) just wasting away,so if I were to get the proper approval from the "ATF" to produce some milled AK type reciver's
how many would you all want and what could I sell them for ?

Well, they currently sell for $289 and up, available from The Firing Line. You might be able to sell a bunch, if you could undercut his price.

Though, at this time it seems pretty hard to beat Arsenal's SAM-7 in terms of price and quality. So, it seems like there is only a market for bare receivers.

Sorry, if this didn't help much.

Good idea, I forgot about that. I read at a couple other sites that Derek Huffman was looking around to see who was interested in buying some, before he had a machinist start making them.

I think the market could use about 125 Type II receivers if you want a project. They would fetch about $350 to $375,

what about some fal recivers Type 1 and 2

I need 4. Make sure you use the european pattern of receiver. This will make you diffrent than TFL, since theirs' is chinease based.

Make a standard and an underfolder and leave an option for threading.

Type 2 receivers would sell out fast. I'll even let you use the but end of my type 2 kit for measurements.

FAl and Galil will sell too.

I think alot of people shy away from the TFL receivers due to lack of supply and price.
