I was thinking it might be a bit flimsy, but if I fill an old magazine with two part resin ( which I have both lying around) it should be more than strong enough to use for assembling barrels to uppers etc etc.... It would work exactly like the machined urethane blocks you can buy for $40

Anyone already try this ?

I gave an old mag body to idlehands to try this. He said he was going to fill it with lead. IM him and ask how it turned out.

A few years ago it was considered the best use for those crappy USA brand mags. Still is.

I would not use it for putting a barrel on, but I use a britsh steel mag for holding my lower while i install pins and such.

Upper I use a upper reciver block.

I just fashioned a stub of 2x4 scrap I had laying around with a wood file/rasp to get the correct proportions to fit the mag well. I then sanded it smooth, painted it flat black and sealed it with poly coat. Cheap, works great...if it breaks...got plenty more....

So did I. 2x4, measure the inside of the magwell and cut the 2x4 with a handsaw. Chuck it up in a vise and its great for lower receiver work.

You can make a homemade vise block for LOWER receiver work, but I wouldn't attempt to do barrel changes with it, unless you want to break the lower receiver.
