I have my parts kit, but much more goes into this receiver choice than I anticipated, as in purchasing a receiver flats and contact some one knowledgeable on bending and Tig welding or buy a welded up receiver then contact some one to complete the internals inside...I'm lost...Oh I already know it's cheaper to buy a new PTR or Cetme. I have that, I want an Ol school clone....any help is much appreciated.. thanks in advance..

Ahhhh...errrrr.... hummmmm. the HK 91 receiver is quite complex requiring a Jig, welding gear, measuring equipment, prints, and flats made to specifications. Its not a fold and weld deal...thats the Grease gun. Greek or Pork-and- cheese flats are the only ones I know of that are good...although I've heard the Turkish meet specs...but thats hear say.
Ray...I helped ( reminds me of the old fried chicken commercial in the 60's, "And I Helped") on 1 build...yes flats like pictured, the pressure stampings must be spot on as the Jig weld will be impossible when things are shifted and mis- aligned. In addition the Trunion placement and weld is critical. I have built a few FALs myself... tricky sometimes to HS and Time..... but way easer then this HK 91 project. If i was into this deal I would send it to a specialist ...by the time you pay smith charges and good parts you can buy a good used HK91...2K or so. Like restoring old cars... 30K into a car worth 20k.
