    Default AR45 80% group buy

    Hi Guys,

    E mailed Justin over at CNC Guns and inquired about an AR45 80% receiver. He (Justin) said if we could get at least 20 people he would do a run of 80% receivers at $295.00 plus shipping, any less and it would not be worth it for him.

    I'm in for one, anybody else???

    That is a bit on the HIGH DOLLAR side for something which is not a proven item yet.

    I gotta pass.

    I'd love to build one, but unfortunately it's not gonna jive with my "have to build" vs "want to build" lists. Sorry. Good luck though.

    Many people have built them and have proven their reliability, but I understand your concerns - a bit much to spend on a "project gun". I have built AR15's and AR10's from raw forgings, so I thought I'd like to try out the AR45 (only have to do the fire control area on this one).

    Thanks for looking............

    It is proven. I have it on my list of things to do but out of a billet. 295 is not out of line. I have had a couple people ask me to do just that for them 80% but this is cnc guns thing so I havent.

    I have heard good things about it.

    I had to look this one up. This is a .45 ACP conversion lower that is devoted to grease gun mags, and therefore does not require shims/blocks (like other designs) to make the magwell work. A good idea but I think I'd rather have a .45 ACP AK


    PRO: .45 ACP - a respectable pistol caliber build!

    PRO: Uses readily-available grease gun mags

    PRO: "Dedicated" magwell design... no shims/blocks to deal with

    CON: "Dedicated" magwell design... can't swap out calibers like you can with the shim/block conversions

    CON: Proprietary design that is listed as "discontinued" on their page. SO... you will be stuck with an expensive paper weight if you need to have anything done to it. The design uses proprietary parts so replacements will be a bitch if you need to replace any of those "special" parts for it.

    CON: AR platform. To recycle a quote I read, "never trust something that shits where it eats"

    9mm??? Have you been talking to my friends? They bought one of those MAC-10 pistols and just recently bought a SIG 9mm (forget the model) "because the SEALs use it"! AND THEN they want to raid *MY* 9mm stash I have saved for my Uzi!

    Like I told them, I have too many Youth/Women's caliber guns already!
