    Default ARs Aside.....

    does anyone produce 80% receivers other than AR types? Is anyone aware of a bolt action 80% receivers? Silly or not, I am curious.

    Yeap. AK's, HK's, 10/22's, and so on. If you can weld, you can reweld some torch cut receivers like UZI's.

    Idk about bolt actions, but I am sure you can find a diy bolt gun thread out there somewhere.

    regarding a lot of the surplus kits with cut receivers. Is rewelding a legitimate solution?

    If you are a good enough welder and the kit affords the required parts, sure. I know a guy that has done it.

    Saw a guy on youtube re-weld a torch cut reciever from a belt fed machine gun.

    There were some Remington 700 "80%" receivers here and there. Either too expensive or vaporware, and not really "80%" (yeah, I know "80% is a marketing term with no legal definition" blah blah)

    There's also the FAL (castings & forgings) - also not "80%", and fairly complicated.

    Is rewelding a legitimate solution?
    Take a tour around weaponsguild one of these days.

    For some sub guns, an 80% receiver is more or less just a pipe the right size. On the handgun side both Glock and 1911s have 80% frames. Cobray made some really crappy sheet metal kits. AR lowers are just particularly easy.
