    Broken Receiver Disposal

    A friend asked this question after unknowingly firing grenade cartridges in his M1 with BFA installed. As was part of the M1 later design the rear of the receiver failed as it should and luckily my buddy didnít have his jaw taken off. Anyway, he has now found another receiver and asked what he should do about the original? Not knowing who else to ask maybe someone here has some insight into what is required to decommission an ATFB regulated part.

    Sell it. Someone with welding skills will fix it.
    When dealing with liberals, always attribute to malice what would ordinarily be attributed to incompetence.

    Yup. There are guys that can weld anything. Dogboysdad had a 6 mil receiver heel welded.

    Someone will buy it, you can also install a junk barrel on it and use it for fitting garand commercial stocks
