The selector lug on mine is dovetailed, and peened in to place to the receiver heel, no welds. How where SAI factory receivers constructed?
Mine is papered as a Springfield Armory Inc and has TIG welded lug. It was parkerized after the lug was welded. I will take it out of the EBR chassis and get some pictures of the lug as it's been requested on the first page of the post.
