I received mine today.
These are very nicely made! No rough spots inside or out, machining is very good, finish is very smooth. I tried a spare factory bolt in both, it went in easily and moved freely. I am very pleased so far!

I used Kidd internals in my first one. Iím getting ready to build the second one.

All my receivers turned out well with the Nitride treatment.

I received the green mountain barrel today and a dry test fit looks very good.
A quick question since you have some experience with these receivers. What did you torque the v block screws to?

Since I used a Kidd barrel with a heated receiver and a cold barrel, and anti seize compound, it didnít need much torque. Whatever Kidd recommended is what I used. As I recall it was very low.

Thanks for the response, I think on the aluminum receivers 10-12 inch ponds is recommended. Just thought these steel receivers might take a bit more.

I wouldnít put more torque, even though the steel receiver will take it, because all it is doing is trying to pull the barrel downward. The Kidd barrel fit perfectly.
Let us know how yours works out.

I surely will. I tried a quick fit after it arrived and it is snug but not overly tight. It slid into the receiver to within about 3/32Ē of being seated. I took it back apart as I plan to drill the cleaning hole before assembling.

That is the one thing I wished I had done before I had mine Nitride treated. I didnít have a jig handy and I needed to get them in for the Nitride process, so the cleaning hole wasnít done. Now that they are Nitride treated that isnít going to happen.

Just a quick up date. I got it put together this past Saturday. Got out Sunday and did some shooting (100 rounds) following GMís break in procedure. The build went very well, barrel went in pretty easily, and all the rest went together well too. Shooting it Sunday revealed some minor issues (scope mounted too high and too far forward, bolt not as smooth as I like and most importantly my shooting set up is not stable enough for really good accuracy) so Tuesday I took it apart and addressed them. Sanded the inside of the receiver a bit, blue locktite on the v block and scope rail screws, lower rings, and aluminum tape bedding on the receiver.
Hopefully I can try it again tomorrow.

Good looking gun. I also approve of that sticker in the upper left hand corner!

On another note, a few more Kingston receivers may come available soon.

I agree on the sticker! S&P is a great place to deal with, good prices, fast shipping and very reasonable shipping charges.

It looks like the guy I bought mine from, on gunbroker, still has 4 left. He is $10 higher but he was good to deal with when I bought from him about a year ago.

Even at the higher price these receivers are a great deal. Where else can you find a machined steel receiver for under $100?

Where can you get them for double that price.

I paid over double that for my MOA receivers.

I had a buddy on another forum ask me today where he could find one of these. It seems S&P are sold out at this time (they told him they were expecting to get 20 more within the next couple of weeks) so I told about the seller on GB. I think he may buy one off GB.
