I have had one for a long time now. I found that the bolt will be critically tight to get in but will go. I modded mine to let it fall in. No big deal. I have had it in a couple of different builds now and had a problem with a trigger not resetting properly on one and immediately blamed the receiver. It turned out to be the trigger and had nothing to do with the receiver. At the end of the day I have found that it was my skepticism that I needed to overcome and not the receiver. I am finally at peace with it and I am about to start another build that will end up costing a good bit of money and I am using my Brownell receiver in this build. The fit, finish and function with mine is good. Just my two cents.

I had the same issue withe the bolt on all of mine but a couple minutes working on the bolt shelf with a fine file and my bolts all drop in just fine.

It will be published on my website, but I'll be sharing here too. So far, I have the receiver arriving tomorrow. The bolt has been picked out and should be ready to test fit next week. I have narrowed the barrel down to two choices. And I have a PMACA chassis with MFT Battlelink stock. I won't spoil the rest just yet.

Brownells 10/22 receivers

I assembled a Brownells railed receiver with a Green mountain fluted stainless barrel
about a year ago. Delightfully accurate and reliable. Tolerances were spot on for me.

I didn't file a tiny bit off the receiver to test fit a bolt today, because my receiver should be wrapped and under the tree...

Iíve put 3 rifles together with BR-22 receivers and barrels. All specs were spot on and barrels were a tight fit.

Sorry for the delay. I got the barreled action, ordered a Boyds Pro Varmint stock, put in a bolt I had with a Volquartsen Surestrike firing pin and Edge Extractor, used an older aluminum trigger group with a Volquartsen hammer and sear, and a power custom lever magazine release. Haven't settled on a scope yet so I just mounted a cheap-o Simmons 4X .22 Mag scope. Functioned 100%, bolt fitment was very tight so I expected a few hang ups at first but none happened. It seems to be very accurate. The stock is sturdy as can be and solid. Overall, I am VERY impressed. For $125.00 I am thrilled with the purchase.
