I have built about 20 AK's and let me tell you the worst thing I ever did is buy ten OOW receivers.

My yugo reciever from nodakspud was perfect. They even gave it a serial # to match my underfolders parts kit so everything matches up!

Nothing is static in this business.

NDS has climbed to the top of the heap, with everything else a lesser product.

My Yugo UF is built on a Vulcan receiver and is 100% reliable...

Then you got a "good one". A couple of friends of mine that have had there AKs built on Vulcan/Hesse have had nothing but nightmares with them. Out of spec. They ran into the same problem that this receiver is famous for in Fals...bent gas rods/pistons. Hesse changed there name for a reason, law suits.

If you didn't build it yourself, you don't know how much work went into making it run.

I know someone who has a Eubanks receiver, and it runs fine, and looks good, too. But that was only after we replaced the center support rivet, cut, ground, and sacrificed some goats.

I used an OOW AK74 reciever for an AK47 build, and it wasn't too bad. It didn't have the anoying cosmetic gap that the selector lever wouldn't fill like the '47 receivers do. Had to hog out the mag well.

..and just to be redundant, DCS rocks.

The OOW also are not heat treated. Sorry, but taking a blow torch to to holes isn't heat treating. They are soft. They bend easy. The metal stretches. I was scrapping a post sample machinegun on an OOW receiver and got to really mess with it -pulling up on the stock dmade a huge bulge on the underside. IN contrast, the NDS are probably a little harder than spec - they do not draw well. Doing the same thing to an NDS and it would crack. The NDS-3 receivers are not to spec. there are a bunch of minor problems with them. They are Minor problems and easily corrected. I show how on my website. Neither is the NDS-1 perfect, but its the best out there. The NDS-9 had too narrow a center support. $8, 5 minute repair, but you have to know about it ahead of time or you'll be hogging out the mag well and narrowing the rails - or just shipping non-functional guns like Vector did on all three that I bought from them.

Personally, I don't see the point of the 1.6, but if you want all the extra work and you think that "stronger" has a practical application, then dimensionally its pretty good. 3/4 ton truck axles are "stronger" than volkswagen axles, but I see no reason to use them on a volkswagen.

How do the NDS receivers compare to the receivers that are on the Yugo's that Century Arms is selling ?

There are so many Century AK types that it's hard to tell.

Most, if not all, of the Yugo AKs from CAI are built on rebadged Nodaks.

NDS-3 worked great for me. The Eubanks receiver actually never gave me any problems but I hate the fact that they left them plain and unmarked unlike Nodak.

I've built on most of the receivers listed and as long as it is in spec it really doesnt matter if its Nospud or Joeken

Some of those companies just have better quality control than others when it comes to product
