My M-4 Project For September

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I plan on buying a M-4 Carbine pre-ban kit from My Webpage. And Im probably going to buy a stripped (post-ban) lower this summer from a Gun Show. Also the forged reciever is better than the cast? I can build this the day the ban sunsets right? Or if it does sunset (I PRAY!!! {p,} ) Well I totaled it all up its going to cost me about $675. So what do you guys think? I think im gonna go with the green furniture. B{ Any info will be appreciated.

Looks pretty cool. From my understanding forged is almost always better than cast. The machining involved is usually more precise and of better quality. Also I would add that there is a company (can't remember the name at this moment) that actually makes recievers that are 80% complete. This is 100% legal but according to the BATF, but YOU (the purchaser) must complete the rest of the process YOURSELF. But the cool thing is that this company (in the NE) has an Open House in which they allow you to use their equipment for free and show you how to complete the rest of your reciever. Ane the best thing is that the gun has no serial # and is 100% legal. Although you would be in violation of the AWB to outfit it with am M4 kit such as you have planned :lol::lol: . You know who makes this kit you will be buying? You gettin the collapsable stock?

I have had a gunsmith tell me the difference between forged and cast is minimal. The problem with cast is they can get air bubbles and other imperfections in them, so forged has better results. But, he says that many companies have better quality control now, they x-ray their receivers and if the cast receivers have issues they melt them down and recast till they get it right. I imagine he honestly believes it since he had both types of receivers and tried to sell me the cheaper kind.

Has anyone else heard about this either way?
