Yes I have heard about this new receiver design.
My only question is what major stock makers inlet for a 1.450" M7500 receiver? Perhaps Manner which would be a good option, I like Toms stocks.
Also, interesting you bring up shipping time concerning the Lawtons vs. the BAT.
I have had two M8000 receivers on order since the end of December last year. First one just showed up this week, second, who knows????
At least you know the BATs will take a long time and expect it with them.
Anyway, your correct, that receiver would be a great choice for a lightweight 338 AM class rifle if you can get them in a timely manor(4 months or less) and they are square.
