Here is a retro-10/22 I built. I has a vintage walnut Finger Groove Sporter stock, a steel receiver (from Kingston Armory), new take-off barrel and new anodized aluminum trigger housing (from Pike Arms). The steel parts were given a 5000 grit polished finish and blued in hot salts.

DARN!
I thought I had decided I didn't need any thing else firearm related.
Now I'm going to look for one of those receivers.

that is a beautiful rifle!

are the variations in the color on the blued parts reflections or is it like a case colored finished?

(BTW, my almost forgotten desire is to have a case colored receiver with matching rings/base)

Where did you order the receiver from? Brownells?
I have seen some listed on gun broker, and in Brownells.

Still no word on how to buy direct?
Kingston appears to sell only through re-sellers/middlemen?

I did find they recommend squaring the boltface as stock bolts are notorious for not being square?

Here is an offer to sell the receivers
https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/810278002
that add keeps getting relisted


I sent a query to Turnbull about having one polished and case hard/colored. Their replay reminded me I need to STOP wanting such things.



(now that YOU did remind me, I might drive by FLL and get one just in case I win the Lotto)

Yes I also contacted Turnbull about CCH, they said they would not want to perform the work unless they could verify the content of the steel.

I used the second receiver to put together this International model
