Just got this rifle in trade. Seems tight, broken in, solid. However, the welds on the outside of the reciever were not done. The welds where the trunnion ends, and the reciever rails begin. How concerned should I be? I MIGHT be able to get a small weld job done on both sides, then repaint the reciever.....I have some say it allows gas to vent out.....Anyone encounter this? Pics below.... Thanks guys.

Same gap on mine too and hasn't been a problem. I think the ones you may have seen online without the gap are the cast receivers made when Century was at St Albans VT. All the stamped receivers seem have welds like this.
