I hope to work it into a business, but I think that will be a ways down the road. I do plan on holding some U-CNC build parties. :) we'll be doing AR-15's, AR-10'S, 10/22's, and at some point 1011's.




I am... Speechless.

Between Geek Pride that guys like you are able to do this (I've thought about it, but I'm too chicken to take the plunge with just a drill press) and pride that the fundamental spirit of the 2nd Amendment is so strong in the DIY community, and the way you are sharing your effort and knowledge... Randy, I just have to salute you. You sound like a remarkable fellow. Keep up the good work!!

P.S.: If you ever open up one of your build parties to ARFCOM'ers/NRA lifers, sign me up! Seriously, I'd scrape the frequent flyer miles together, or *something* to make a vacation out of it... I'd love to have such a knowledgable resource anywhere around here in New England who was so willing to share what he's learned.

i just reread the first page and have one suggestion

when you're doing the etching you use a cutter then the transfer paper and weed it out once it's applied to the lower...i've always been taught to weed the letter out and then tranfer it...

Does anyone have any tips to cut the trigger slot. I've tried with an extra long 5/16" endmill but the slot went crooked and had to clean it up.

I use a long 5/16th and have a little wobble that I clean up with a file. I can see where it can be a problem but it’s not bad on my mill.

When I started with the old style 80% lowers I cut the trigger slot from the bottom. I just measured it out, marked it off and cut it with short end mill.

Sounds like you have a lot of deflection. I've never done one of these, but I guess if I had that problem, I would mark a line where the center of the slot should be (length ways) & then drill a series of holes along the line. Then I'd come back with the end mill & clean if up.

That's what me Dad & I always did if we needed to cut a slot in something back when we were farming. Except we only had a hand drill & used a file to clean it up.

quick question,

seeing as how it seems like you skate around the typical ffl requirements that come with a typical lower receiver, do you have to register this lower receiver or run into any type of legal issue with these?

I don't think it's skating. Federal law allows an individual to build firearms as long as all Federal, State, and Local laws are met. If one is making a firearm for their own personal use then there's no issue. If a person builds these with the intent to sell them, then they must obtain all the necessary licenses to be a manufacturer. There are no requirements to marking these receivers. It is suggested you mark your lower in case it's stolen or there's a problem identifying your gun.

I may get a group buy going for those guys who may be Interested in 75%/80% AR-15 Forged/Billet Builds...Perhaps a small build party as well...
Their are a couple of good places that have really good quality 75%/80% "paperweights" . I been talking to a few of owners/vendors and
It seems like the smallest quantity for a group discount is 10 pieces...

You got it. We will be talking to one of the top three high quality 75%/80% vendors and we will post all three AR "lowers"
and do a quality check on all three and then select the one with the best quality,features, and price, We will also be adding
more Info very soon on 75%/80% builds on the website below.

Interested.



OK, I will set-up a new thread for the group buy and will have a new blueprint/tech drawing on the website specific
to the latest type/style of 75%/80% "lowers", they will be to Mil-Spec dimensions..."lowers" will be 7075 T-6 aluminum
forgings or billet 6061-T6511 aluminum CNC cut to Mil-Spec. Only the absolute best quality suppliers will considered.

It will be just a matter of which vendor will give us the best price on the "lowers" and jigs, as well as fastest delivery.

The new blueprint/tech drawing with be on the website by Sunday night Feb.12th, 2012 .

I just completed my first of five 80% lowers. I used jig and lower from tactical machining. They are local to me in deland fl and they are super nice. When I picked them up they showed me around their fulfillment area and I got to look at their personal toys. I will continue to use their components.
