    I know they are pretty much dried up lately.. anyone have a link? All I can find are complete, decent cond rifles which is not what I want

    I'm looking for Obendorf/Argentine/Yugo makes.. I will take one with a sewer pipe barrel if the receiver is GTG, have my own barrel and other parts waiting

    Are you looking for a receiver as in bare receiver or a complete action?

    I'd head over to gunbroker if you haven't already. I've seen a number of them over there lately.
    Some are over priced, but there have been some good deals too.

    Just a stripped receiver, I am swimming in parts. I am kinda leery of Gunbroker after I read some reviews of the place.. I would consider it as a last resort, tho

    I'm building a modern tactical rifle out of it

    I'm swimming in actions, but unfortunately all are slated for projects already. I know there will be a few on my friend's table at the Klamath Falls gunshow next weekend...
