View Full Version : Which AR-15 jig should I buy?

Looking to get I to the 80% lower thing. Can anyone recommend a good, reasonable priced jig? One that can be used with hand drills and/or router.

Tactical Machining lowers go well with the 80% arms jig. The gen2 lower saves you a little time.

i used a Juggernaut Tactical jig and it worked quite nicely

You should get the one from the vendor you get your lowers from if possible. Most of the jigs fit just a tad differently, and you stand the best chance of a proper fit if the vendor you get your lowers from sells one.

Forged lowers will fit differently than a milled billet lower, and also to note is how the bottom fits and/or if the trigger guard will stick out, that might make it more difficult to fixture when drilling the holes. What I mean by this is a billet lower has a milled in-place trigger guard, unlike the original mil-spec which uses a forged lower with a removable trigger guard. If using a milled billet lower in a jig designed for a forged lower w/removable trigger guard, the milled trigger guard can hang out the bottom. This can be inconvenient when turned on it's side to drill the holes in a vise.

Other than that, have fun! ;)
