Per a post on battlerifles, Lou of LRB sales, who was the distributor for MKS before they went belly up, has entered into a collaboration with the factory that manufactured the raw forgings for MKS receivers and they are working on producing forged receivers. Supposedly the factory was left holding the bag with a bunch of raw forgings by MKS. These receivers are reportedly produced as semi-auto (same configuration as S.A., Armscorp, etc. with the rear op-rod take down notch) but are forged, and are currently undergoing BATF scrutiny. It will be nice if it all works out as advertised, but given everyones past experiences with anything in any way connected to MKS, Caveat Emptor might be the best approach at present.
