    IAI Garand receiver?

    I have a chance to pick up at a very good price a new M1 Garand receiver. It is listed as a IAI receiver made by Caspian. I have never heard of this receiver before, but I am very familiar with Caspian's frames for a 1911. They are an investment cast frame and the casting is done at Pinetree Castings which is a subsidiary of Ruger. Anyone have any experience with one of these receivers?

    Sounds more like a CAI receiver made by Century Arms...

    Not with IAI.
    CAI yes, and they either work or are junk. Can you post a picture of the receiver?

    I now remember that IAI made M1 Carbine receivers that were reported to be acceptable.

    Barrels not indexing isn't a giant hurdle depending on if they hugely over time or under time. Does the receiver work on the rifle it was on? $40 is the price I'd set for a roll of the dice.

    The receiver is new so nothing has been fit. As for the price it's a lot more than $40. With what I have found out in my searches and what has been said here I think I'm going to pass on the deal.

    If it's a Pine Tree it likely came from the same mold as the CAI receivers and is going to have the same issues. I don't think they made very many, I'd never heard of one until this thread.

    GPC lists the IAI receivers on Gunbroker in a more of less permanent auction.
    The fact that they don't seem to move and guys are paying twice their asking price for ex-ceremonial and drill receivers speaks volumes.
    Some people are like slinkies.
    They aren't good for much, but they do bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
