How hard would it be to get someone to build a lower already with a magwell designed for a Sten mag? Instead of converting the magwell adapters just have the lower "cut" correctly from the start. Do you think Tony at TROMIX could be "tricked" into doing this? I know he used to make his own lowers before his last "vacation"

z71man23 was talking about making one on a wire EDM machine. He said he's made a few from 0% lowers. [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=15&t=143961]Check it out here[/url]

Good idea. How about dedicated .45 lowers too?

I would like lowers built to accept Glock mags. I’ll take one In .45 and one in 9mm please and my brother will take one in 10mm. THISISME

What constitutes an 80% lower? 80% of the actual material, with only 20% left to be removed, or is it by the amount(number) holes/cuts made? If it is by material could we not get someone to build a lower with everything except the magwell cut? I would think you would have at least 20% of the material coming out of the magwell on an AR. Who knows how the 80% works? [beer]

William at [url]www.tanneryshop.com[/url] sells these and knows all the legality questions about them. What I do know is that there are specific areas that count or do not. For example, the buffer tube area. Threading that is a no-no in any case (doing so makes a complete lower receiver). Also some question in the fire control area. The magwell is already opened up in an 80% receiver. Also, the magwell is a bit irrelevant, because an AR with no magwell will still fire. Hope that helps, and contact William for other answers.
