THIS PAGE WILL DETAIL THE ISSUES WITH THE NDS-1EZ BLEM

We will be doing another run of the NDS-1EZ sometime in August 2012

THEY WILL HAVE THE HOLE LOCATIONS CORRECTED

The main issue with the NDS-1EZ is that the rivet holes (front and back) are about .030" farther to the rear than we wanted.

 

This can lead to a few things you should be aware of:

1. The front rivet holes may need to be egged slightly to allow the rivets to be inserted (which can happen on any build)

2. The rear rivet holes being farther to the rear will cause a gap at the front of the top cover (which may need adjustment for proper retention)

3. There may be a gap at the rear of the selector when the safety is in the "up" position (cosmetic issue)

4. With the rear block situated farther back, there may be a slight gap between the rear of the receiver shell and the buttstock

 

 
 

 

 

 

This series of pictures compares the same Hungarian SA-85 parts kit mounted in an NDS-1EZ Blem and in the discontinued NDS-3 "Economy" receivers.

These pics show that the top cover fit is virtually identical between these models.

So if you have used the NDS-3 before, the NDS-1EZ Blem will be about the same.

 

Here's the front details

Note: the 2 front rivets were not removed on the Hungarian trunion yet. Also, the top cover had previously been trimmed for a build.

A virgin top cover may fit tighter.

Here's the rear details

 

 

 
 
 

 

This set of pics show the same Romanian front trunion mounted in the NDS-1EZ Blem and the discontinued NDS-3 receivers

You can see that the front holes may need to be egged slightly on both the NDS-1EZ Blem and the NDS-3

 

 
 
 

 

This set of pics show the rear end details of both receivers with the same Romanian rear block mounted

You can see that the back of the block sits "proud" of the rear on these models, this can cause a slight gap between the receiver shell and the buttstock

 

 
 

 

 

And finally, a pic of the right side showing the gap behind the selector lever in the "safe" position. This is purely cosmetic, and doesn't affect function.

 

 
 
 

 

How to deal with the top cover gap:

1. Try a different top cover. A virgin top cover may solve any retention issues

2. Weld up the backside of the rear block holes and egg out the front slightly.

This will move the rear block forward and close the gab at the front of the top cover and selector area.

3. Completely weld up the rear rivet holes and start fresh.

4. Weld up the front of the top cover.
