    I’ve got a 223 I’m wanting to convert to side folder/weld up, holes drilled to pin the FS/G blocks and have a definitive arms mag well installed only place I’ve found willing to do the work is in Prairieville ($$$$) if you know what I mean. So Im thinking I’ll do everything and just pay them the 450 to install the magwell. I built a few over the years just a little worried about cutting and welding on the receiver my self. Having the tools (press/welder/drillpress/ect.) what did you use to mark the holes and what difficulty level would you put this at? 1-10

    I have some reciever stubs that I used to mark the left side where the pin sits. Once that was cut the holes for the forward and top rivet are the same. Just have to make cuts for the latch.
