M3 drilled receiver


Recommended Posts

I'm about to buy a used M3, as I absolutely love the stainless look and the option to use it semi or pump.

However, I'm a little worried over the fact the current owner decided to drill into the receiver to install a picatinny rail.

On one hand, it aesthetically bothers me, on the other hand I worried those holes could have a negative impact on the structural integrity of the receiver(like cracks forming around the drilled holes).

I attached a pic of it he sent me.

Are my concerns justified?

Thanks in advance!


P.S: Is it normal receiver and barrel have different serial numbers?
