Any ideas on the legality of this in Kali:

Its not Cali that you have to worry about on something like that, its the BATFE.

IMHO that looks like it requires enough work that you should be in the clear.

They have copies of the ATF letters documenting that this is good to go as an 80%-er available on their website.

And we all know the ATF never changes their minds on that kind of thing...;)

My bad . . .

Total price for the unfinished receiver, bolt (complete) and prints for finish machining is $450 shipped (ConUS only). The receiver is CNC machined from solid AL 7075-T7351 bar stock. The magnum bolts are made from sintered tungsten alloy and will also be finish CNC machined. The firing pin will be made of titanium 6Al-4V and has a unique design that I'll post pics of later on my web site (along with the price information). All in all, this receiver platform is stronger, lighter and more accurate and any other on the market today.

I hope to begin shipping in September 2007. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about this product.

Thanks for the info. This one sounds very interesting. I've been thinking about build a .17HMR on a 10/22 platform.

No problem, Mute. Hope its okay as a new member to the boards to talk about my product (at least I didn't start the thread!). I've been working on this project for about 4 years and I am finally at the point where I can "go public" with the release. However, it will be September before I'll have anything to ship as the magnum bolts and firing pins are still being machined. I figured a little "early press" would be alright so long as its not more than a couple months out.

I know this product is not going to be for everyone, but for those shooters who have access to a mill and are looking for a bench rest quality semiautomatic receiver that can shoot any of the popular rimfire cartridges, the 10/xx just may be the "project gun" you're looking for.

Attached are some pics of the unfinished receiver, magnum bolt blanks and a "finished" receiver that was posted by one of my customers on another board. (The plastic toy hammer in the background was not my idea, but the anodized TGH, mag release and bolt handle looks pretty sweet).

As far as the question of "legality" is concerned, I can assure you that I have taken every step to stay above reproach and completely transparent with regard to U.S. federal laws. As long as you are allowed to own a firearm, you can build one, provided there are no State or local laws prohibiting such activity. BTW, there is no such thing as an "80% receiver" -- either it is a firearm or it's not. In its current state of completion, the unfinished 10/xx is nothing more than a hunk of metal that is perfectly legal to ship anywhere. However, I am only shipping to the ConUS and require that all buyers confirm that they are 18 years of age or older and are US citizens.

Again, I appreciate the questions and thank the moderators for allowing me to discuss my new product.

The "gunsmith" hammer in the pic is a nice touch. :D

Any special jigs needed to finish?

Did I read your page correctly?
This can be built into a 22mag receiver?
I might have to buy a mill now!
I've been looking for a 22mag 10/22 to 2 years...

Yes. It is a "magnum-length" receiver that is capable of shooting ANY of the popular rimfire cartridges. I have not tested the 17 Mach-2 only because I do not have a barrel for that caliber (yet). So far I have tested the .22LR, .22WMR and .17HMR -- all performing perfectly.

This first run of unfinished receivers is very limited in quantity. I will not be taking any preorders but instead will compile a list of prospective customers at my web site for further notification. There is no obligations to purchase for filling out this form. Orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and no more than two “bundled kits” per person.
