    Time to go see if I have the parts to build one.
    LOL - I felt the same way back in the day.

    I bought my first receiver directly from Global Trades in 2007. I remember Trueno standing next to me when I bought it.

    MPiKM-72 - "Trueno, you sure these are good receivers?"

    Trueno - "Daddy like."


    Still have it - but there is a 1965 Md63 original barrel front end on it now.

    Still have a ERTD 1mm 5.45 receiver I bought in 2008 just in case Hussein won.

    If you go 1.6mm make sure you test that the rounds feed correctly - with some magazines I get bolt over round misfeeds on that AUSA-1 5.45x39 build. The mag catch is .6mm further away from the bottom of the bolt. The solution is to build up the mag catch with weld. In theory 1.6mm receiver seems like a good idea...

    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!
