Stamped and Milled Receiver: What Is Their Difference? Which AK47 Is Better?
Advertisements and magazines show that there are many different brands and kinds of rifles existing today. Each of them claims that they are the excellent one which would surely fit your hands and make you a sharp shooter. By this, people most especially those who have a heart for these kinds of gun get confused about which one to choose. They often ask which company is telling the truth and which among the brands could offer the quality they have been looking for.

After so many decades of competing, one of them has maintained its eminence and remained at the peak of the gun industry – this is the AK47. This assault rifle was founded by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1945 at Soviet Union. Its good qualities – durability, reliability, accessibility and affordability made it well-known around the world.  In fact, this was used as a weapon in World War II (1945). Until now, its demand keeps on escalating.

AK47 is known for its flexibility that even with mud or dirt in it, it still can function very well.  However, if one wants it to live longer, he must clean it and take good care of it regularly. If one has done this accordingly, then the assault rifle would live from 20 – 40 years.
AK47 has two types of receiver – the stamped and milled. Which do you think is better, the first or the latter? For you to find out, here is an in-depth discussion about them.

An AK47 which has a milled receiver lasts longer than others. This kind of receiver is made of a solid block of steel which makes the gun heavier yet strong. Hence, the interior of this receiver is directly carved on the steel. Furthermore, this kind of receiver is huge and has a rectangular design which is 5 inches long that makes the rifle lighter. Another thing that makes it different is the shallow angle cut on its trigger and magazine. This kind will last longer than the other receiver, so it is more expensive.

On the other hand, the stamped receiver is manufactured using a metal that is imprinted on the receiver. This is more commonly used because of its more affordable price. Hence, it is also widely used as it is easier to build and deal with. One can distinguish a stamped receiver from milled as the first has only shallow marks on its magazine well and it has more external designs on each of its sides. Its features and characteristics make it more in demand and cheaper. However, it is regarded to have less accuracy compared to the milled receiver.
After all, both of them have advantages. If you want the one which does not require you to spend a lot of money, you may choose the stamped receiver, but if you want the other one which could be of service for a longer period of time, choose the milled receiver. Just be careful and meticulous when buying one for you to have the best.




      Be sure to thoroughly clean your gun every time after you fire it.
