« on: May 20, 2012, 10:22:18 PM »
To the group,
the only mfgs of vz-58 receivers that I can find are AWO and Ckeckzpoint(pardon the spelling). Are their any others.

If you mean ORF and Czechpoint. Then yes. There is a company that makes a receiver for Century, but it is just for them. The others are partials.

When you say partial, do you mean the receiver is unfinished (AKA 80% as some are sold)?

Yes, you can get a 80% from here:

Not much of a price difference for a lot of work.

i've seen that and it looks like a bandaid. Don't want to go that route. I would rather have something that looks factory. I measured my barrel diameter last night and got .826". Does that limit me on which company i go with.

I believe both of the Czechpoint and ORF are that size. It would be great for someone else to confirm this.

Yes the ORF receiver from AWO comes in .826 thats what my barrel is, and I ordered from AWO and thats the size I just got last week. its a nice receiver. but plan on spending some time cleaning up all the holes from milling process. took about 20 min or so to clean everything out very well. but I could have been going slow. they were very fast on the shipping took about 3 days to get to my FFL

 i was under the impression that the barrel should be a press fit. moreso than an ak barrel and trunion cosidering the size of the ak barrel pin (9mm) versus a cz barrell pin(.125"?). What i'm saying is the AK seems to relie more on the pin than on the press to keep the gun together. I purchased a vz receiver stub and it measures .824. that is a .002 press fit with my barrel. So a vz relies more on the press than the pin to hold things together. Looking at your previous post I understand you to say the barrel diameter is the same as  the receiver bore. That would be a slip fit when assembled and and I don't think the barrel pin would hold it together. Am I wrong on this assumption. I just don't want to pay alot of money for the receiver and it not work.
