The PKM's Rebirth.

After extensive tool development, Vltor is finally preparing to offer
the best PKM receiver ever built.
Top of Page
Compared to conventional PKM receivers, Vltor's receiver is more
rigid and wear resistant. Vltor has researched the PKMs history
and found the weaknesses of the existing chassis and moved
forward to improve upon its design. For example, the PKM
receiver was notorious for cracking around the rear trunnion
rivet holes. This was cured through increased strengthening
around the said holes. Another downside to the original PKM
receiver was the excessive wear on the receiver's rails. Vltor
has remedied the problem by the eliminating the conventional
"stamped" rails by replacing them with fully machined,
heat-treated tool steel rails. Finally, with the installation of
the tool steel rails, the Vltor PKM receiver is less likely to
flex or twist during operation, when compared to the original.
