I made the receivers from 6061 aluminum. I know 6061 isn't as strong as 7075, but I just couldn't stand the price of buying a 12 foot bar of 7075....the 12 foot bar of 6061 was expensive enough...haha I've shot thousands of rounds through my 6061 receivers and still haven't had any problems. I think the military use 7075 just because they need it to be as strong as possible. I won't be dropping my AR's in the dirt anytime soon, so the 6061 receivers work fine for me The CNC machine that I used is a Fanuc Robodrill. For the most part I used the Robodrill, but I also used a Fadal VMC as well. Since I think the Fadals are shit compared to the Robodrills, I used the Robodrills every chance I got. We currently have 5 Fadals, and 5 Robodrills. We will slowly be removing the Fadals and replacing them with Robodrillskevin_m4 said:Now that's exceptional, :notworthy
what alloy is that and what kind of CNC did that? (assuming it is a CNC)I would love to see that in a detailed picture sequence.
