Considering that the companies currently selling them can't keep them in stock .. I'd venture to guess quite a few.
Hi Sprat, I see you mentioned Roderus, are they still in business? I have tried everything I can think of to get hold of them but no answer on emails or phone. The forums are still active but I can't post there either :-( any info you can get me will be appreciated.
Thanks, Ron Smith II
I ordered the Building an AR-15 from a Forging video from Roderus aka DIYguns got an email stating that it is shipping the other day.
Take a look at this link:
CNCGUNSMITHING - www.cncguns.com - AR15 80% Tooling / Drill Jig
This makes 90% of the issues go away. Add a GOOD drill press, and a couple of vises for same.
The 10% part IS hard, but not impossible, That is the magwell part. I did one a few years ago using a cheap drill press. At that time, I could buy the forged slugs for about $14.00 each. I am not sure I would have liked to stake my life on that lower, but the first 4800 rounds worked great.....No issues AT ALL. Still, being the doubting person that I am, I took a sledge hammer to it..... For me, it was a learning experience.

$89.99 + shipping - 5 Speed Bench Drill Press With 1/2" Keyless Chuck
You can literally spend whatever you want on a drill press, if you're a professional machinist, I could see spending a few hundred dollars on one, otherwise, just buy the basic 5-speed one and it should be good enough to do basic wood and metal working.
Hey guys.... I've got them. I pick some up on this coming Tuesday (April 8). These are not your run of the mill forgings. Billet parts, cut from a block of 7075 T6. These are legal according to BATFE letter to me March 20th.
I will also have a dedicated 9mm Colt or Rock River Arms style coming out around 4/17/2009. Same for an Olympic Arms Sten mag model. Small batch... first come first served.
