Just a shot in the dark but maybe give Numrich a call.

They strip guns down for parts, what do you suppose they do with the resulting stripped receivers?

I bet they throw them out for scrap recycling to pick up a few cents.
We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located, among the millions and millions of cows in America, but we haven't got a clue where thousands of illegal immigrants and terrorists are

All I see are torch cut.


If I understand correctly, they have to be torch cut now.

Given that these old saw-cut receivers no longer meet ATF standards for destruction, wouldn't they now be considered an illegal machine gun? The rules now require they be torch-cut with at least 25% of their material destroyed. Even if they were legal ONCE, I wouldn't want to touch this with a ten-foot pole.
