I know a guy who built one ( ) ....piece of cake. It can be done with a minimum of tools but for best results you'd need a drill press and a cross-slide vise. This guy says his 80% AR is accurate and functions flawlessly.

Re: Any 80%'ers here?

I've been thinking about it. I never have gotten around to it because the jig and the lower put you at over $100 bucks. Which is a large investment considering you can't sell them after you make them. How many AR's do you need? Haha stupid question I know...

After the whole gun craze went away and AR's had completely saturated the market, you can pick up lowers for $49 bucks. For me I just bought a bunch of them and stuck them in my safe for a "rainy day."

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Re: Any 80%'ers here?

I would like to do one someday just to say I did it but cannot justify buying a jig and an 80% lower when finished lowers are so cheap right now.

You can sell an 80% lower if it was not built with the intent to sell it. Sounds strange but it's the same with my Curio and Relics license. I can sell some of the guns I buy with the license but cannot buy rifles with the intention of turning around and selling them.

This place has them for $29.80 each if you buy three. They have been going in and out of stock the past few days.

Polymer80 sells the polymer lower, the jig and the end mill and necessary bits for right around $80.
They also sell a 308 version for right around a hundred bucks.

You're right, but with the way the ATF has been "interpreting intent" lately with the Sig Brace and this whole M855 debacle, I personally would just err on the side of not doing anything that could be misconstrued by the ATF. Because we all know how that will ultimately end up...

I'm a big proponent of what you do in your backyard is your business but when you start selling stuff and involving other people....uh oh no....
