I need a good receiver and don't want to wait for Armory/GT or DCI anymore. Is there one available that doesn't come from Joe Schmo, doesn't have the selector gap, doesn't have the ser # on the side and is properly heat treated? I don't want to do a Gun Broker deal either and get someone elses warped receiver they can't return.

I in a conundrum/catch 22! Do I have to wait if I want it right?

I have never had any problems with gunbroker....You just got to read the feedback to see if there are any problems with the seller.
And also e-mail or call to verify that it is IN STOCK ready to ship.
I also don't by someone else'es bastardaztion...Only new receivers.
AS for OOW recivers..The selector hole was an annoance but easily fixed by grinding the selector lever.
No big issues.
I can recomend a seller if you want.

IIRC, I read that the OOW receivers have their logo stamped where you need to put a rivet. Is this still true? Also, I checked their website and can't find a link to buy one.

The selector gap has been fixed and the logo moved forward about one inch on the receivers they are selling now.
