    Default Receiver metal type

    Anyone know the specific type of steel HK receivers are made from?

    Particularly HK MP5 stamped receivers? German and US LSC receivers?

    I believe the HK design calls for common low carbon steel for the receiver and other pressed steel parts. Part of the original design specifications was the use of inexpensive, readily available non-strategic materials and high volume production machinery to allow ease of mass production under wartime conditions.
