Atlantic just posted up a new Riley option that looks interesting. I'd like some shots of the "custom" rear trunnion. Overall, it's nice to see some new options.

Default CG1

Also, while we're on the topic of new Riley offerings, check out this Polish build on an CG1 Childers receiver.

What am I missing? What does this product have to do with Riley Defense? Is Atlantic shipping parts to Riley to have them assemble the rifle for them?

It’s basically another CG1 offering, with a different furniture option. I’m assuming that the demand for the CG1 is high enough that Atlantic brought in a contractor to keep up with demand. Personally, this offering says a lot about Riley’s build quality. If Atlantic is willing to have them build for them, the attention to detail must be there.


EDIR: I noticed there's no side rail, which I actually like.


Atlantic, the listing says it has a side rail in the details list of the build, but the written description says there isn't one. The pictures clarify, but it looks like there is a crossover in details.

We had request for a basic WBP offering with no scope rail , No nickel plate and basic black poly stock . The Atlantic Arms build team is booked up on current builds and no desire to compromise the quality of builds . We are very comfortable with Rileys build quality so spoke with them about constructing this WBP Model for us .

Thanks for the clarification. Speaks highly of you to listen to costumers an what they wish for, as well as Riley's build quality since you trust them.

Riley still can't put the selector notch in the correct spot...

I am not sure what you are talking about since the Selector notches are installed by Childers Guns when they build the Polish receiver .

The selector notch on the Riley made guns, is in the middle of the receiver and not on the bottom where it should be, the MTAC has this problem as do their prior rifles on their receivers.

The receivers they use are not in house receivers

Does that mean that the safety selector would have been imprinted by manufacturer or by Riley? I looked at Moressey (sp) receivers for sale and what I could find, they did not have selector imprints on them.
I just checked my Riley and I do not even have a notch for 'S' at all. Have the letter 'S', just no notch. It still functions as should be, so I am not worrying though.

If you look at the top edge of the receiver, you'll see a little dimple where the nub of the selector lever sits in when in the safe position. My WASR, CG1, and Vepr all have them.

Also, I noticed the N-PAP also has the Fire notch higher up on the receiver than most other semi autos. It looks like the F notch is where the FA notch would be.

The Receivers that they use are Morrissey. I am personally not aware of all of the variations of them. I would venture a guess that it was not done by Riley as it is stamped and not engraved.
I rarely use that to stop the selector on mine. I drop it all the way down. the notch being where it is on a "shelf" receiver does not bug me. If it were a Polish variant or Bulgarian variant. I would be a bit more nit picky about the location and or lack of the Auto and Semi notch.

I was contemplating purchasing a classic does anyone have one? The forged bolt, front trunnion, and 4150 nitrided barrel, seem about right. Thoughts?

I think I've talked myself into getting one of the MFT rifles after Christmas. I miss AK's.

One of the WBP rifles might come during tax season too. That or a Dillon press.

I wanna get the Riley and beat on it pretty good to give evidence to it being a winner or loser personally as well. I might start dabbling in ballistic gel tests and such. Seems fun and it's pretty easy to order blocks anyway.

I picked up the polymer version but added surplus stock to it though. So far I am,loving it. Accurate as my DDI was. Only a couple hundred rounds through it though. I would buy another next time, just waiting to see what they come out with firdt.
