Any local gunsmiths familiar on stamped AK’s? I have a Chinese AK built on a B-West receiver (I know here come the comments), some of the pin holes are wallowing out and possibly re heat treat.

Even re heat treated it will break. Those receivers had issues even after heat treat. Best option is a Childers but that won't happen here in WA.

There is no good way to repair it. You could weld the trigger pivot pins in. The carrier guide rails are going to wear out next. You could cut the old ones out and weld new ones in. Never seen anyone repair these Bwest USA Tucson AZ receivers. They are usually cut and sold as a parts kit. Is it a spiker or red bakelite version?

It’s an underfolder with wood furniture.

Unfortunately it needs a replacement receiver which isn't possible in the Soviet republic of seattlestan.. but things do get found around traveling to the USA.
