    Any markings on the other side of the receiver? Maybe a Cliff Stearn build?

    Thanks again.
    Thanks everyone.

    I forwarded him all links.

    In denial, took it hard. Said all these post are just opinion.

    He's right it is opinion...Very intelligent and informed opinion!

    Yes -- that's likely a cliff stearns build. See that from a mile away. And, ignoring everything else I've not seen an IMI receiver with machining marks on the exterior like that gun has right over the imprint...

    Yes, I didn't want to say that it looked like an Infinity Firearms build, but apparently, it is.

    I also noticed how "similar" the Cliff Stearns builds were, to the Infinity Firearms builds, so, I emailed Cliff Stearns, and asked him if he was a builder for Infinity Firearms.

    He said yes, that he was "one of them".

    I have no "first hand" experience with Cliff's work, only some pictures of his builds, and Infinity builds, so I guess I'll refrain from judgment, for now.

    I don't want to put down Cliff's work in any way.
    I'd just like the community to have a true idea of what kind of quality to expect.
    I "think" it'll be a bit better than Century's work, but nowhere close to a Jeff Miller build.
    Possibly a good "low cost" alternative to a Golani, if you only have Cliff do the barrel install, otherwise, the price will be considerably more.
    I'm gonna have him do a barrel install for me, and see how that goes.
    I wish him well, and hope to brag about how well he does on the barrel install.

    I hate to allude to someone else's build prices, and you should always call them to get those prices right from them, but.....
    I "think" both Jeff's and Cliff's basic full build prices, were, very close, so one should also think about that.
