Also got all the drill bits and taps I need. The jig hasn't got here yet (though I got a tracking # today and its only 1 state away so it should be here soon. Also got some Norell's Moly Resin coming... Need to get a 1/2" drill press and an air compressor (already have an airbrush), and I should be pretty much ready to go!

This is going to be fun!

Think I'm going to build a 16" mid-length with a CAR style stock this time.

How much wampum you lay out for that, Kemosabe?

You don't do this kind of build to save money. The 80% blanks are priced pretty similarly to a finished lower, albiet without the added expense and hassle of an FFL transfer. And the cost for the extra equipment (drill bits, taps, jig, etc) would take dozens of receivers to pay off (or have several friends who want to do builds share the cost). The advantage to building from an 80% receiver is you get to control the markings and original finish, but mostly its just a cool and fun project going one step beyond building from a finished receiver.
