Sorry, yes that was my thread. The lower was built from a 0% forging (block of aluminum that looks like a rough lower). I also did a Fab10 style from a 0% forging. Great forum for the home builder/gunsmith types. The 0% forgings cost me $18.00 ea, already had the mill and tooling, then just read up on the forum and started making chips. I've been working on Benchrest guns for a few years, then got insterested in the Gas Guns. AR15.com is a great place to share ideas.
Thanks for the great topics fellas, you got me interested in the CA .22lr project.

How long did the 0% .22 lower take?

The Mrs. only lets me go off to the garage for an hour or so a few days a week, it probably took about 8hrs to do all the setup and machining, and the magazine took about 2-3hrs to machine, modify, experiment, re-modify untill worked flawless. Learning easier ways to setup forging to speed things up though.
I shot the .22lr a couple of weekends ago and it cycled great and grouped well with cheap ammo, so untill my baby is born and I can sneak away for a few minutes to go to the range, I can order up some better ammo and see what it can do. Any suggestions on ammo for the DPMS?
