    Sharp bros released one not too long ago. Rifle dynamics use them for their production rifles.

    Yep. Stamped work pretty much the same. Accuracy levels aren't much different either.

    I don't own a milled receiver AK variant, but those who do say the overall action is a bit smoother. Makes sense. But heavier. If your concern is durability/functionality, you're not gaining anything going milled over stamped. For stamped, Nodak Spud or Childers. I understand 74uLLC makes excellent receivers that are as close as you can get to a real deal (welds/markings/etc.), but the wait is over a year.

    There are differences in stamped receivers...the thickness (gauge) of the metal....or so I am told.
