does it matter if the lower is billet or cast? I have a billet 80% currently and was thinking about picking up one or two cast ones as well.

I didn't use a jig. For mine bc the mag well was wider then forged so I have to just use a vise or buy jig from hell fire armory to fit the lower

You will be far from the only bearded asshole there. Some just don't have good taste and drink beer. Us whiskey drinking bearded assholes are considered a higher tier. Welcome and jump right in and pull up a virtual chair.

Nice pic, looks like a rabid beaver got hold of it.
I'm sure that buffed right out...

Anyhow, hi all...
Long time lurker, relative infrequent poster.

Pardon my questions if any of these seem a bit naive, I'm not really familiar with the whole 80% process, but I'm interested in learning more and possibly participating.
Before things too long winded, if one of the experts thinks it's easier to just explain via phone, let me know, I'm more than happy to just give a call and talk through it to save everyone's time.
Which do you typically work with billet, poly, both? Any other starting "blank" (yes, I know, it's not truly a BLANK blank...) or preference?
Someone else mentioned having "blemished" ones.
How badly are they and/or what impact, if any, does it have on the rest of the milling?
Or are they just cosmetic things easily ignored or hidden?
After they've been milled out, what do you do for finishing - cerakote, anodize, other, nothing?
Have you only done ones for AR15, or do you do AR10 style too?

Thanks in advance and hope to join in the fun.
Can always stand to add another toy to the box.

got a problem men...

i'm certain i can't get all the stuff down and out of the shop in order to get this pulled off by the 16th.

the question is this... do we want to cancel it or reschedule it? i'm quite willing to host as always, but i can't shortcut the customers i have waiting in order to do this. i'm sure you guys understand.

your thoughts?

I Vote for a reschedule. It can be further out so maybe you try to plan your what I assume to be chaotic schedule. Your being very generous as always so its ultimately your decesion

sure is.

i'm guilty of not getting my shop moved around the new mill put in place yet, which is a hold up, but i'd like to get that done and keep rolling. after such a draining legislative session, i'm really really really ready to do something more fun like this.

if you guys still want to do this, i sure do.

If it will happen I will be there. I'm new to the 80% deal. Should I go forged or billet, and is there any particular manufacturer that you guys would recommend?

thanks
