I looked at two drill rifles at the Eastern Games and they had both been worked heavily at the barrel receiver weld and the bottom of the barrel where the op-rod saddle runs. My personal opinion is that the "welder" who de-milled them got a bit happy with the welding stick and the drills couldn't be put back together and have the op-rod cycle at all for manual of arms. Then someone whittled away to get clearance and to remove slag from bottom of barrel. Even after the grinding there was PLENTY of weld left. I passed.
