It is very functional.
Goes bang and the parts fit.

I built an AR on a the T3 reciever with no problems whatsoever. There are many elitists on this site that will tell you if it isn't BM, Colt, Armalite or Knights, that it is a POS. Yeah, the above are outstanding rifles but if your budget is limited (like mine), there is nothing wrong with the Oly reciever.

I have used both cast and forged lowers from OLY. I can say that I think you will be totally satisfied with the product.

I know there have been problems with "aluminum" receivers with FAL's. As an example DS Arms will not manufacture an aluminum FAL receiver - in their tests these receivers have failed.

I understand the pressures are different in an "AR" but still I'd check this out.

Further knowing this is the "holiday" season I don't want to dump cold-water but recently I was forced to eat at "Fred Lobster" and their per-clam price was $15.00/each !!! Now if you take 82 clams times $15.00 that equals an ArmaLite receiver.......

I like Oly and SGW lowers.
Did you know 99.99 of all AR lowers are Aluminum.
The AR lower is nonstressed.
They can be made of wood or plastic.

Now there you go again. Being correct.
Before coming back to this post I called a knowledgable friend as I had begun to consider that the lower was unstressed (which he confirmed; complete with lecture) and came back to post what you have already posted !!

Now for purely ego reasons I ain't owning no "firing" gun with a wooden receiver.
