I am not going to place an ad for these since I am not allowed to sell them as I am an individual and not a manufacturer so I can just make guns for personal use. I have been impregnating them with a very hard resin which I then cure with UV light, and so far the durability has been astounding -- but I think we can thank Gene Stoner for a design where the lower really does not take much abuse. I have found that Beechwood is the most stable -- nothing has warped and it seems indifferent to humidity changes. Maybe if there is interest I can go into manufacturing. I am using replaceable steel bushings on wear points. If they are sold later, the serial number will have to be on a metal insert.

Robert, that is outstanding.

I would consider buying one ... if the DPMS wooden buttstock could be refinished to match in the same shade ;)

I might be wrong, but that looks like a photoshop job.

I just doesnt look real...shadows don't look consistent with the real AR above it.

Nice PS job! How long did that take you? The only suggestion is to make is to use a better repeating pattern next time. Unless you have thousand dollar molds and injection equipment, there is no way resin could come out with those color patterns

Friend made this wood grain in photoshop in 5 minutes. Look at the shadows. The length of shadow is the same where the gun touches the table and where the back end is an inch or so off of the table.

Ask your friend to duplicate this in Photoshop. I don't see how it is possible. The shadows make sense to me given the fact that it is a much higher object than the one next to it on its side. BTW, there are 3 strobes lighting the subjects. One is with a soft-box, one is with a silver umbrella, and one is bare but bounced off the ceiling. Look at the shadow under the rifle stock. That is from a high light source. Now look at the shadow from the 30 round magazine, that is from a left-front light source. Now look at the shadow to the left of the pistol grip -- that is from a source on the right.

If It's real then it will be no problem to just hold it up to a camera with your hand...rather than arguing about light sources.

it looks exactly like a CNC gunsmithing 3D CAD model with wood grain texture.

But I could be wrong, not likely tho.

Bogus... the mag catch dohickey (visable from the left of lower receivers) just below the bolt catch is wood and apparently part of the lower.

The grain is all wrong.

It would snap at the buffer tube and the front takedown pinhole.

7th grade woodshop.


The grain should be ========= for strength not |||||||||||||||||| snap ||||||||||

that is NOT Beechwood.

Beechwood is much lighter colored, with an overall uniform pattern of grain.

Almost like a light colored maple.

That does look fake, but it is probably is not beyond the realm of possiblity on a good CNC machine and a block of hardwood.

I am thinking of offering a CHIA-lower will start taking pre-orders now!
If there is enough interest, I may also do a limited edition run of hand-woven wicker lowers that will ship with a special bone-china trigger and disconnector free of charge.

Shadows aside, look at the perspective of the real ar and the 2 dimensional angles of the fake.

that deffenetly fake.

I would sa its a 3d model with a really bad wood grain texture. Since im a graphic artist, just a few looks at the originaly pricture show its fake. The shadow alone makes it fake. If you look at the real ar, you see the shadow is in a different location then the shadow for the "wood" receiver. On top of that, there are no shadows on the "wood" receiver at all, meaning the lighting was done with your standard light.

MY professional expereince would tell me he made the model in a 3d/cad program, put the wood texture on it, then took the render into photoshop, and added it to the scene. Then added the drop shadow. He didnt correct the angle of the light source.
