Correct. The receivers have penetrating welds so to remove all the weld would require either some deep recesses around the magazine cut off or I would need to hire it out to reweld the area before regrinding to shape. So, a surface coating is just a lot easier and as a drill rifle the receiver doesn’t have enough value to go crazy with.
