Assault Weapons of Ohio (terrible name in current political climate) is apparently producing a new generation of VZ58 receivers.

After rigorous quality and functionality testing time, we've finally started production on our new VZ-58 milled receiver.

Auction starts at $275 w/ $430 buy now: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/830121020

Anyone have a feedback or review on these new receivers?

I wonder if these are the same folks that made the receivers for the Ohio Ordnance Works guns back in the day?  Thanks for the heads up and the info!

They were previously named Ohio Rapid Fire (ORF) and then became AWO.  I don't know who made OOW receivers.  ORF/AWO's founder died around 2010 or so and they had some out of spec receivers as well as issues with improper heat treatment of receivers across several of varying weapon systems' receivers that they made...  I want to say the original owner's daughter or something is now running AWO.

Agree with this; makes me wonder how gun-centric the owners are. Hope it’s a good product...
