You are doing some really nice spot welds with your new spot welder.

Nice rivet work too.. no dented sheet metal or wunky heads.
Very nice job overall... can't wait to see it done.

^^^ Nice man looks real good. Just curious what type of finish did you use on the receiver?

Cool thanks I need to do mine and want to have a battlefield pickup finish. It was one of the first batch of apex kits which is rough around the edges.

I like the reinforcement plates even if the stock will be permanently fixed.

I think from now on I'm just gonna put reinforcement plates on all my builds, even the fixed stock ones. The receiver just feels more solid with the plate on there.

What does it reinforce? Does it add strength to the pistol grip or?
I didnt put it on my Polish UF - I already put the rivets in when I noticed the plate!
