Anyone In a multi state area want to share one? I'm thinking about winging it based on what I've been reading but you never know!
I did a 0% dsa forged receiver once without a tacticoo( tactical machine) or CNC jig with hand tool and drill press using a old tannery 80% as a guide I also had a old OSI jig osi jigs do not have the fcg jigs, I carved out the fire control group ( FCG) with only micrometer & drill press the osi jig has the pin alignment holes. the rest with memebr borrowed jigs of all brands and hand tools & drill press
so it can be done without the two jigs mentioned above, if your a milling machine guy you don't need them either
but heck what do I know, I have only carved out 10 of these both alum & polymer, 1)0% alum 2) 80% polymer 5) 80% alum forged 2) tannery 80% castings, over the past 20years
seems the moderator did not like my suggestion, there is no one jig better than the others only the skill of the person doing the building
if newer members need advice please feel free to pm me
Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.
You may also want to get a dremel tool with the sanding drums to smooth out the pocket as you may want to make these slightly under sized. It is easy to take some more metal off then it is to put more on
Also, get some cutting fluid. Do not skip on the drill bits or mill bits, they need to be very sharp or you will have some problems. If you are using a drill press, consider getting a decent x y sliding vise. Harbor Freight has some that are usable, just make sure you tighten the jibs so that there is no play.
Oh, and Sprat, I had no problem with your suggestions on what jig to use. I have no particular love affair with any of them. I just did not want a lot of off topic posts on the group buy thread. It is my regimental personality, being from a military family, to keep things in extreme order and precision. In retrospect, I guess I should have just moved it to another thread, there was no offense intended. I am new to the moderator post and am still learning the duties.

Thanks for the print, sprat sent me a complete blue print, I printed it and am having it laminated at staples.
