OK, I know somebody most likely already provided this info somewhere here... I can't find it though.
Does anybody know of a good source for AK receivers in norther California. Say along the I-5 coridor between Redding and Sacramento?
Any help would be greatly apreciated. I have an FFL that will sell them but is having a hard time finding someone from our of state to buy them from for resale.
Any info there?
Pardon my NOB question. I've got 2 rommy kits with monsterman grips that need hosts receivers!!

Tell him to order from Nodakspud. And to give you a discount for telling him that.

Same as what he said, order from Nodak and have them sent to your FFL. They seem to have the best quality and the lowest prices. You need an NDS-3 for a standard Romy build.

The ITMs are ok but the receiver is made from a thicker gauge of metal and takes a little more work fitting some of the parts like the dust cove and stock.The ITMs also don't have the trunnion holes pre drilled.Go with the NDS-3 your build will be a little easier.

While DDS ranch may be easier to order from (online CC ordering), my Franken-Saiga was a PITA to build on an ITM arms receiver.

- Slightly canted from the factory
- Rails were EXTREMLY tight and required some bending for proper function
- Drilling through hardened steel takes REALLY GOOD BITS.
- Measure twice drill once. I was sure my trunions would be mis-aligned.
- No metal protection. I believe the NDS-3 is blued.

ETA: A 7.62x39 post for POST NUMBER 223? That's blasphemy! :eek:

The NDS is not blued.It is that color because it is completely heat treated.The ITMs are only spot heat treated.And yeah the ITMs I built were a PITA too.

The NDS receivers are the closest to 'factory spec' stamped receivers that you will find.

Thanks for all the cool info guys!!
I'll put in an order through nodak ASAP!!
My FFL has been trying to find someone to sell to him for the past 2 months off and on due to the heavy demand for them.

It looks like CWS is now selling NDS receivers through their web site.
