    First Commercial Gunworks Receiver Builds

    Deleted.......Nobody wants to hear the truth, especially if it conflicts with their preconceived notions of what reality actually is. Don't worry Brian, you will never hear or read another thing about any of it from me. You have my word on it, which is actually good, unlike many others in this day and age.

        Those are looking nice! Nice heelstamp on them too. I like #21 best, it just says "7.62mm M14" on that line.

          Here Is what the customer said!!!
          Charlie Sporck Well gents. Here they are. I was the first official sale for the GWLA line of receivers. #21 31 and 1066 for custom tribute build. First off I would like to thank the GWLA team for allowing me to come and take a look around as well as Rick Bowen for telling me and keeping me in the loop about these since I first got to meet him in early 2014.

          Picked up my recoevers on Thursday and they had to sit and wait for me to get the day off Friday. Less than 24 hours later, I have two complete GWLA guns on all Winchester kits.

          Loaded up early Friday and shot on over to Ricks place. We first started on number 31. 31 was built on a all Winchester kit with an original marksmanship unit unitized gas system with NM flash hider. ( when I recieved this kit and the whole barrel was built with an epoxied in place hand guard. ). Barrel read 0 and 0. The shoulders had not been worked, so when put on the reciever it clocked in at 13.5 degrees. So we did nothing to the barrel to install it. Used a GI Winchester bolt that needed ZERO laping. That's rights. Did not need to lap for lug contact. All other GI parts for like a dream. The spot face heel cut is perfect and bolt hits evenly. There is no hump in the inside heel like the 3 JRA's I have. Absolutely no working of any kind was needed in the receivers to get something to fit.

          Build 1066 which is a tribute build to PFC David L. Denny who was killed 10/18/1966 1066 sports an Obermyer heavy 5R barrel that was on my #325 JRA. All other parts were GI and again no laping needed for my Winchester bolt to get lug contact. Build went super smooth.

          Number 21 sits in the gun safe to never be built cause it is the first offered reciever from GWLA.
          I don't wish to hear anything about Ripp on any comments,this is about the GWLA receivers.
          Started the builds at 8:12 am and we're done at 12:30pm. JRA 325 was in barreled and all 3 barrels installed on 31 1066 and JRA 325 in an hour and 40 minutes. Could have been faster but hey it's hot here in the south.

          While at GWLA picking up the receivers, I talked with Charlie and looked at the batch. The first 12 show end mill cuts before he switched to a face mill. So if you get any of the lower serials you will see end mill cuts. JUST so you know.

            The customer was happy with his receivers but Ole Rip has an axe to grind because he is no longer affiliated with us. He doesn't even know exactly what a CNC model really is, he has heard me use the term but their is confusion in his eyes when I talk about it. Here is a link to the customers reply.

              WARNING
              As long as the parties that are currently involved with these receivers are happy then that's all that matters at this point. If this gets out of hand then it will be the very first thread that I have to close on this brand new forum.........don't be the guy that causes that, please!
