Thought I'd jump in and try to mill out an A2 lower to look like an A1. I do think it went well. A 3/8 milling bit in a drill press and a cutoff wheel and emery wheel with a dremel done the work. The right hand side seemed easier to me to do that side. Anyway, I found some dremel bits I had forgot i had, real sharp pointed diamond crust type bits. Really handy with getting sharp edges in place. I still need to work on the very back edge of receiver to fill it in and match it to the highest point in ring. Here's some pics:

No bragging but I'm kinda proud of how it turned out and that I didn;t messed it up other than a little on the right side with the nicks on the very back brace piece. I plan on finding something (JB weld?) to cure this little flaw.

Old school retro. The way they used to do it before we could pay to have it done. Looks good.

Looking good, stay on it. I might have to try one if Nodak Spud doesn't have any available soon.

Shaped the left side up some more. Tackled the right side last night and actually thought it was easier to do than the other side.

Intercourse THAT feces all up IN it's anal orifice!

Great job but I am WAAAAAAY too chicken shit to attempt that!

I mean it was a hard thing to start bangin and scratchin on a brand new shiny NoDak lower when I did a BFPU but I am convinced I would FUBAR a lower all to hell if I ever tried that!

Hats off to you my friend!

(I need to send one of to be "emBraced!")

Would like to reprofile another to do an XM177E2 sometime. It will either be easier or I'll mess it up, LOL!
