That's pretty sweet

 

The price wasn't so sweet , anyone complaining about a 308AR price needs to price one of these . I can build or buy a complete 308AR for what I paid for just the Receiver.

Yep , but in the end it will be worth it , all top end parts to go with the top end Receiver , at least thats the way I look at it . Someone will be a happy camper when I die 😂

Gotta say that shooting my Springfield M1A is really relaxing and enjoyable. I think it is a link to my fascination with them as a kid in the 1950’s. I like my AR10’s as well, but they have a totally different feel to them.

Pretty sure the US Military drawings are archived some where on line .

Good luck , because these Receivers are not like an AR , need specific tooling to make them & its not cheap to Forge anything . Some Manufacturers make them from Billet Steel ( Smith Enterprises ) Some make them from investment casting ( Springfield Armory Inc. ) The specialized Tooling will cost an arm & a leg & then find someone that knows how to use it .Much cheaper to purchase a Bula Forged Receiver , Futon Armory or a SEI & go from there .

You have till midnight to get in on a Bula deal for the fourth !

Matt... if you draw it, I’ll do my best to get it cut. If I can cut them, I will guarantee you at least one of them.

I'll go over the prints and see what it'll take to CAD it.

This is going to take a while to do, some poor draftsman gave a lot of time and effort to the prints for this beast, but they're comprehensive!
