Default Fulton armory m14 receiver?

Has anyone purchased a Fulton armory m14 receiver lately? How is the quality? I know in the earlier runs they had some finish and heel stamp issues, is this still the case with the newer receivers?
Any info would be great.

They are nice receivers.

I used a couple that I picked up at Camp Perry a few years ago for builds.
I found them extremely easy to build on but cheesy in appearance. Ended up putting Chinese barrels, trigger groups and parts on them and giving them to my younger son to start his M-14 romance.
I have 1 other cast receiver left in the herd and that is going to be making a trip North soon.

This one is a build from maybe 4 years ago on a Fulton receiver and all USGI parts

They go together very nicely. Much better than the 762MM Firearms POS I built, and better than an Armscorp.

I've built about 10 M14 on Fulton receivers and built many others to include SAI, JRA, and LRB. Fulton receivers are the most hassle free. Parts fit perfectly, lug helix is superb so little lapping of the bolt is required, park is of excellent color and quality, heel stamp is rolled. I enthusiastically recommend them especially for hobbyist builders.

Some of the forged receiver snobs look down upon Fulton since the receiver is cast and a bit of casting peel is left here and there. I'm particular concerning aesthetics and it never bothered me in the slightest.
