    Yeah..saw these recently. Looks like you need to be a good welder (or really good at grinding of splatter afterwards..?)
    Very curious to hear from someone who tried assembling one...

    Those are pretty cool. They have the AR-10 as well.

    Tig welded they come out pretty nice. There are some places you can drill out to lighten them up. I can say after your finished, you can drive a tank over it and it still works.

    same here... but no TIG...

    JackSquat is a good guy... he makes all kinds of stuff for us & most of his stuff has all come from hobby requests.

    ive done his puzzle piece AR as a screwbuild & as a weld together. its pretty easy to follow & all of his stuff is overbuilt strength wise. like Tony said, you can lighten it up after your done & give it a cool "swiss cheese" look!

    I just got 2 of these in the mail, got one all mocked together. Really doesn't look like it will be too difficult, will just require putting in the finishing time like Rocster said. Maybe Ill start a thread when I start wreaking havoc on it.

    All the pieces go together very straight forward, excited to get it started and slap on my PSA upper.
    Biggest thing to over come seems to be tapping the buffer tube threads. I'm thinking about welding a castle nut in($5) vs buying/borrowing an $80 tap and screwing it up.

    ^^ thats actually a very good idea & way to do it if you dont have the tap.

    i actually used a spare upper & pinned it to it to make sure everything spaced out perfect. tacked it all together.. then went back and made my "binding" welds.

    Thanks for that suggestion! I am very new to ARs let alone assembling this jigsaw puzzle but my friend lent me his lower to test my upper/build the lower. Pinning the upper sounds like a great guide.
