    how to bend McKay uzi flat

    after considerable time tweaking the dies i now have a working set. i need do a trial bend from start to finish to make sure everything is doable with common tools. looks unlikely that the dies will be available for under the $150 benchmark i set due to the complicated machining and material costs, however affordability is a priority. will update with procedural pic's when done. thanks for all the interest.

    Sounds like a good price. Would pretty much pay for itself by doing 3 receivers...

    Very nice. I especially like how the trunnion area is formed. Looking forward to seeing more..

    What size press are you using?
    Do you think it can be bent with a 20 ton press?

    JDurgin,

    Make a set of dies for me. Your price is reasonable.

    Let me know when they are ready.

    Keep up the good work!
