Hey HighPowerShooter, are the SA receivers cast? I have an aversion to cast parts, especially receivers and hammers, as they wear VERY fast,and don't have the hardness forged parts have. The main reason I don't like after-market Carbines is the presence of alot of cast parts and components.
As many of you might know, the military and manufacturers of the M1 Carbine during WWII, tried investment casting on many parts, but found them unacceptable for use due to lack of reliability and their tendency to wear/break much quicker than forged. Easier to make, and usually cheaper, but not reliable. Luckily for the after-market manufacturers, we don't usually put them to the use or abuse soldiers in battle do, so they are "Okay". As a shooter, they are okay, but have no collector value or history behind them, so why bother? I've had a few, and won't ever buy another. Just my opinion of course.

Does anyone have a Kahr? Sorry Auto Ordinance yet? I'm exceptionally curious what CNC machining can do for a newly made carbine that it _supposedly_ mill spec. Anyone?

Yes the SA Inc receivers are cast.. but some of the best Carbine 'smiths and collectors have said they are the best commercial receivers to be made yet.....

I've owned several carbines over the years, mostly GI, but some Plainfields, Universals and one marked Coast to Coast (a universal, I think). GI, great. Plainfield very good. Universal, not very good. I remember buying GI carbines for $65 and 800 round tins of ammo for $35. When I got my first AR15 in the late 70's I thought who needs these carbines and dumped several including Plainfield enforcers and pistols. Duh!!!!!!!!!!!!
