So it’s a Romanian receiver made in the year 1970 and the model # is BT1000
As mentioned, the date and serial number were stamped on the trunnion. It would appear the trunnion and the parts (if they match) were made in 1970 in the Cugir factory in Romania. But the receiver was made much later specifically for the commercial market in the US (note the lack of dimples on the sides of the receiver and "third hole" not drilled) on the same machinery as the military variants and is newer. Basically older parts on a newer receiver.

This is correct^

1970 date Romanian kit built on a new semi auto receiver.

The Romanians have realized that they can make more money demilling and rebuilding their guns, than they can selling them as parts kit. The barrel ban has more or less made these kits unsellable to your average builder. By demilling them in country, and slapping a new receiver on them, they make a good deal more money....
