    Default Finishing an AR15 80% Lower with a Drill Press and hand drill.

    Interesting. Never saw it done before. My Marine Nam neighbor Bro is a machinist, I might use his equipment and give it a try? Interesting to watch it done. Creates a whole new world of building, like the old days of our AK flats. A new adventure in building.. Cool..

    I am waiting till the Chief comes out with the good stuff. This AR lower building has opened up a whole new world of building. You pros at this stuff remember if you would? Their are guys like me who love this stuff but have the mechanical ability of a gibbon ape?
    New members will be asking questions, just like I did years ago. Gunco and the old members helped me immensely through the stupid questions on AK building. You old guys be kind. Only stupid question is the one yah don't ask..

    yep my first dozen AR's were done on a craftsman drill press with just a couple of bits & aluma burr.

    pretty sure ive got a tutorial here on how to do this yourself in just a couple hours. :-)

    I'm currently looking for the best deal on a jig and 10pack of lowers. Palmetto State has me inspired.

    True biggun the price is way down on 100% receivers, for now anyway. Was not but a short time ago companies were out of stock on the 100%. Having the 80% and jigs are insurance of not worrying about a fluctuating market. My mechanical abilities are limited or I would be stocking up. Got a bad feeling about this guys last days in office up their in D.C..
    I look at it like we did in the old days where those $69 AK kits plus a free trip too the Russian AK museum were never going to end. Prices and availability will go up on these, I bet on that. My money in the bank is getting .000001% interest, my old kits are averaging a bit more on their investment. Cases of ammo at $70 sitting next to them.
    Just my .02. Yall do as yah please.

    Take a look again at the 80% jigs. They have them now that can be completed with a hand drill and a router. Very easy! Tactical Machining commonly sells their 80% slugs for $29-$49 on sale, better prices in quantity.

    Here is the site for the "new" jigs...
    80 Lower Jig | 80% Lower Receiver Jig | Universal 80% Jig Kit | 80% Arms

    And here is the Tactical Machine site:

    80% AR-15 Lower Receivers | Tactical Machining

    This is so very easy vs. how we used to do it in 1994.....Just the Bee's Knees!
