    Has anyone been following the sh*t storm on akfiles.com regarding the ORF receivers?

    Gunplumber build quality rifles and I will give him that. On the other hand, if a bucket of parts does not fall on to floor already assembled, he bitches at every opportunity of "out of spec" or shoddy quality. Funny thing is years ago when FAL kits, receivers and builds were plentiful, gunplumber thumbed his nose at AK builds. Now that FAL building is waining, he is "born again" on AK type rifles and becoming a outhouse expert on them.

    I learned long ago to never engage him on any discussion. You will never win no matter how right and obvious you may be.

    Is there anything that we should be seriously concerned about the receiver such as the bolt lugs for long term use? It seems that GP is not the only one who refuses Galil builds on ORF receivers now, also AZEX.

    No, you can either buy it prebuilt by ORF, or Century or you can build your own on a ORF receiver with your own parts kit.

    Also there is the Hesse receiver, any idea how these are compared to the ORF ones?

    I've sent a kit to InRange C2 for build - same as the SERII, same engraving, but a chrome-lined barrel and spare bolt.

    I think Gunplumber is highly competent but he went overboard there. Also seems to be an ongoing dilemma as to whether the bolt lugs engage properly and whether the receiver is properly heat-treated.

    I will be keeping a round count log and watching the ejector/bolt recesses, probably photodocument, to determine wear, if any.

    Unfortunately, I have one of the Galils built by ARS on ORF receiver that is a nice wall hanger right now because of head spacing issue. We have not come to resolution yet so I have not spoken up in other boards. Too much of the keyboard commando talk over there without any real solution for the poor bastards who are holding nice work but unsafe to use.

    I'm sorry that you have a problem with your builder.

    With kit builds, sometimes problems can arise.

    A good builder makes all the difference.

    I believe that In Range has resolved any and all concerns and considerations that have come up with the SERII builds...and done so quickly, happily and without protest.

    This shows how important it is to get the right builder...one with a good attitude and skilled in Galil builds.

    I hope you get your situation resolved to your satisfaction very soon.
