    I had a Rock Island Armory marked Sendra reciever back in 1985. It was my 1st AR & my brother assembled the lower with the instructions from an article in Firepower Magazine.

    Sendra was the parts company Nesard.

    That's what I was thinking - I owned an early '80's PWA rifle at one time. Hunk... O... Junk... Probably why they went out of business, JUST as the AR craze was taking OFF (early/mid '90's).
    - Either you're part of the problem or you're part of the solution or you're just part of the landscape - Sam (Robert DeNiro) in, "Ronin" -
