Nice work. I say start with a pistol, you can go up from there if you change your mind.

That is some crazy milling skills there w/o a jig. I finished mine in less than 10 minutes all together :D

What technique did you use to get the angle of the pistol grip hole right?

rino
06-23-2010, 9:39 PM
the pistol grip hole was already done, but i have a lot of jigs that i can set for stuff like that

kinda hard to tell what you're using, do you have a drill press with an X-Y vise to hold your work and move it?

THIS.. or just don't mark it until you really decide on it. But if needed, you can mark them pistol and always go rifle later on but can't make it a pistol again.

If you can do 'em in an hour, I say it doesn't matter pistol or rifle. Can always make another one in an hour for a pistol or rifle. And another. And another. Great job!

Not really.
He's got all the marks to follow with the endmill.

On the last one of these i did, I made a drawing with all my corner points so I can use my DRO to repeat the corner points very easily.
That should make the next one quicker... :D

On the finishing, what are the options? I suppose you could paint it. I'm wondering if you can powdercoat? Are there any shops that can do mil-spec anodizing?

You're clearly better with a mill than you are with a camera - nice work! ;)
Oh and go pistol!

Everyone in CA should have at least one AR pistol lower :)

I said AT LEAST... doesn't mean you can't have 4 or 5...

Polish it up to a chrome like finish! Or go with a splash/fade type anodizing. :rolleyes:

i used a 3/8 4 flute


randell is on it, once you mark it you can follow the lines just as easy as following the jig

That's because drill presses were not designed to take any side-load on the quill.
Milling machines were specifically designed to have the quill side-loaded while cutting without deflection.

Rino, that's not being a jerk. Some people have to understand that the equipment to finish 80%s i.e. mill, drill press or cncs costs a good amount of money. You are asking someone to open up their personal shop or home to strangers on the internet who they don't really know. There is a lot that people have to consider when hosting a BP or helping people out.

Sadly people get all butt hurt when they get the "NO" and they act like the person is a jerk.

Trust me, I had an argument on PMs with what it seemed like a 12 year old. When I told him no I couldn't help him finish his 80% bc of XYZ answer... well he acted like I was such a jerk and I didn't want to help people out..

Just my .02cents backing up Rino about his choice :)

Because after going to build parties.... I don't blame him

No one is calling you a jerk or any other names. I don't take things personal especially from strangers. No harm, No foul.:D

Man I want to do that.
What's the best deal on 80% lowers?
I want one now, I'll find the mill later haha.
