If the law is upheld by the Supreme Court, it is legal and, until overturned, constitutional.

I don't like it, I don't agree with it, and I will do whatever I can to get it changed. But - if an AWB is passed and upheld, it is the law.

Rip - I respect you and like you - but on this we may disagree.

Mine is 52204 - and required extensive work. Thanks to Rip (M14) it now functions flawlessly.

That's awesome Steelap! I also have a 7.62mm Receiver, mine is 52166. I have had no major issues with mine. Magazine fit is good and easy to take out, all the wear on the bolt and inside of the receiver looks normal. I have shot close to 800 rounds through mine so far. So far so good. I am still concerned though with all the talk of receivers being off etc. I am going to look for a repetibule gunsmith to do a good inspection of my rifle as soon as the holidays are over.

Group 6 52254-52297
Group 7 52298-52337
Group 8 52338-52379

I have one from group 3 and one from group 5.

I thought some were made with custom serial numbers.

Actually, it would be the 14th one, you have to count 52000 as number one, which makes 13 the 14th........ and second question......unknown.

I just got a look at 52014 and it was a mess. Have you ever tried to take your bolt out of your rifle yet ? While the bolt guts are still assembled ?

Please try it and let me know back here. 52014 would not allow it, because of machining on the top right of the receiver bridge. It was so thick, the firing pin tail would not clear the cut-out for it, and come out of the rifle. You have to use an empty 30-06 case to disassemble the bolt guts first in the rifle, then the bolt will come out of the rifle. Also, the bolt lock ears had the hole drilled too low on them, which caused all kinds of problems with the bolt lock and it's functioning. Barrel ring threads were machined off by one and one quarter degrees in final indexing. That's ok though, as military specs only called for no more than two degrees off 0 degree index. NM spec was one half degree, on the big teams.
