    Do It! You have or have access to a cnc mill? I know the S-12's/V-12's are your thing but do you do AK work? As in rifles?

    You could always use evl's trick to run S-12 mags and drums in your V-12.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    All your pics with the new metal straight edge are good. I can clearly see warping/waviness around the hammer, trigger and safety. It also appears that the receiver is tapered.

    There is definitely a bit of warpage in that receiver. How bad that really is? Ill let the experts decide. In a perfect world you would see no gaps at all running all the way down the receiver forward to aft.

    Wow! That receiver in the 5th pic looks warped to hell! That gas block pin channel in your next post..SMH! I know theres not nearly as much material as on a AK barrel but dang!

    When you're doing what you love is it even considered work? Lol. I guess it still is when you're working on other peoples stuff. Did the bent receiver exhibit deformation in the same area as Kwesi's bolt?

    I got them on the phone today and spoke with a salesman. He said they will have parts availible at some point but they are not availible now. I mentioned that having carriers, bolts and magazines availible for sale would be great for them considering how many S-12's and clones are out there and utilize the same parts and mags. He agreed, not suprisingly. They could be making money selling parts to people that dont even own a KS-12, its a no brainer. Think about how much $$$ glocks making selling just magazines? With all the different carbines that take glock mags. The guy said the parts will be for sale on their website once theyre availible, and also said not to expect them for 6+ months from now.

    Well on a positive note, it looks like you have a clean and well organized work area.

    I believe evl was pointing out that there has been contact there and that is where the peening is occuring. Also I believe he's wanting to see a pic as described in his drawing to try and determine if the reciever is bent at all. So lets say if the reciever was slightly bent, causing the peening/deformation..then filing that circled portion wouldnt actually fix the problem. I would hold off until he gets a chance to see the reciever, thats just my opinion.

    Youve got to crawl before you walk, or if alcohol's involved you start walking but end up crawling lol. The biggest thing when doing any kind of mechanical, electric or metal work is to take your time. Speed comes with experience. You dont want to rush because thats when you make mistakes. Its always easier to remove more metal/material than it is to add metal/material back. When it comes to metal work such as fitting parts I always prefer the least aggressive method that will still be effective..I.E using a file v.s. a dremel because although its faster its also much harder to control the amount of material being removed and much easier to go overboard. A dremel is great for things that arent critical and/or hard to replace.
