Armscorp Receiver Dimension Changes?

877 5
Does anyone know the date or serial number range when Armscorp changed the dimensions of their receivers for Fulton Armory. Main changes seem to be making the oprod lugway shallower, the shelf wider and the oprod spring dishout deeper.

There was a post on another gun board by the owner of Armscorp serial number 17000 who was at Armscorp while a representative of Fulton Armory was there discussing and evaluating the first Fulton Armory receivers being made IIRC.

YYYYYYUP! That's just the way it seems to be with commercially made M14 clone receivers. You may get a good one and, then again, maybe not.

These days, only LRB seems to be very consistant with the QC. But wait...
sooner or later someone is bound to get one that slipped through a crack.

But they'll make it right if it happens. Just like all the rest. If one critical dimension is off on a receiver, it affects part "A", which in turn, affects part "B", and on and on. Just the nature of the beast.
