    Default Question about this receiver.

    So I found and purchased the complete front end in photo and the guy I bought the front end from is willing to sell the rear portion for $935. I was thinking about buying the rear portion but I think I can get the parts (weld mounts and rear 1000m sight) on the rear portion for cheaper at RTG parts and Gunbroker. Looking for some advice.

    Question about this receiver.-hk11.jpg

    Thanks

    Great potential for a reweld. Also the trigger pack hanger is pretty important to that.

    Semi mods would need doing first.

    it is scrap metal at moment, as long as denials go in place before reweld, perfectly fine.

    Yes, absolutely. As gulfstategaurd said, the "full auto" characteristics must be addressed before the metal pieces are made into a receiver.

    What was once legally a machine gun (stripped receiver) is now rendered scrap the moment it is cut in half (or better) and rendered useless as a receiver. (All ATF opinions aside, and they are just that, opinions, not law, they would like you to torch cut in x amount of spots displacing x amount of material, they don't write the laws, but they pretend to)

    So if one were to plastic weld a G36 receiver into something useful again from pieces, the rear end must have material added to prevent insertion of an auto bolt carrier, thus making it a semi auto receiver. For an AK, it must have the safety (auto) sear holes welded up before being a receiver again, etc. Different weapon designs require different actions. Best way to do it is make it to the same specifications of existing semi auto examples, if available.

    Very nice finds, OP.

    With all of that said, is that rear stub worth the $935? I just did the math for the weld mounts and rear sight on RTG parts, HKparts and Gunbroker and it came out less.

    Personal opinion NO. You can buy a complete rifle from a third party manufacturer for less. But it may be worth it to you for the joy of having your own G3 clone.
