Thanks for the forum, guys. I've been trying to find

some data on the G3 clone receiver, especially the

aluminum ones (ala Federal Arms) as they seem to

lean towards the AR series. I understand they pin

the barrel assembly to the receiver (two each, one

upper & one lower. What kind of shear forces are

we dealing with at that junction? I understand that

the FAL/L1A1 series have a longer reported service

life than the G3/91 series, supposedly due to the

stamped sheetmetal as opposed to using forged or

(more so now) cast receivers. Any feedback on this

subject matter would be extremely instructive. Finn
