I still build from flats because I already have the tools to fold flats.
I know where to pick-up barrels cheap this is also one of the reasons. Don't ask cause I don't tell!
Receivers don't need total heat treating, just the FCG holes & ejector rails will get you good enough. I have quite a few of my builds with 10,000+ rounds through them that still run good. Nodakspud makes it easier to build I will agree with that.
