1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    As long as Mr Dodd has been around, I think he knows the answer to this question. Guess it is worth a bump:~}

    There really is no cutoff nor are the numbers sequential- it wasnt the first 500

    It was however about 500 of the first 1000 although there were a handfull spread throughout the second thousand.

    The receviers themselves were made on equipment that just wasnt up to the way Germans were used to doing things- that equipment was for the most part shipped over from the US

    The parts you find in these receivers often are remington parts

    I am not sure if there was any difference in the actual alloy but many of these receivers over the years have been fooled with by different gunsmiths

    All of those receivers can be updated but it often requires welding and reboring because the geometry and tolerances werent the same-- it really takes a CNC type process to make them interchange

    Hinge pins-- as far as hinge pins- I havent personally seen the smaller hinge pin on the K32s but the Remington 32s had both large and small hinge pins- depending on age

    I have actually had a highly engraved Remington converted to K80 parts by Ottsville and it did require the welding and re machining to make this work
