If you could find the receipt for the receiver, that should provide the month in 1987 you received it. I like to get the month and year for the serial number data base entries. Thanks for the input.
Looking at the lettering and the edges, is this a billet receiver? Did these have an issue with hardening?

Thanks

Are the Stainless receivers good to go? I've seen varying info about their quality. Hardness issues and gauling.

My Armscorp, bought used about 10 years ago, has the same stamping. It is sn 10379. It's been so long since I've looked at the parts, I can't remember their origins. The barrel is heavy, non-GI, and because of that the rifle is heavy. I prefer my LRB's standard weight.

I'm not Different, but you shouldn't have any issues. Nice score.

Galling is always a issue with SS against SS, the receiver and bolt are dissimilar materials so you shouldn't have a issue, you still need too grease the rifle in the areas that require grease.
