I'm marrying into a Century Arms receiver that my late predecessor had.

It's marked as follows:

-on the magwell:

NC003XXX
Century Arms Inc
Georgia, VT
R1A1 Sporter 308 Cal
Made in USA

-inside the magwell:

METRIC

It appears to have the ejector installed.

I will eventually build it up for the Sinister, who is not yet of age. Is this Century receiver good to go, or should I look for another receiver?

Free is good. The bad I've heard is building pains. It also matters about vintage. Still through their history is hit or miss.

Start the build and see how it goes. Check fit everything before the barrel goes in and see if anything rears it's head.

Thanks.  Sounds like lots of issues.  May pick up a metric mag @ the next gun show & go from there.

Emailed Century.  Perhaps they can give me some information.
