Hey guys, if you've made an 80% AR-15 or 80% AK, lets see the results :D

I have a couple 80% AR-15 receivers to finish (after 01/01/07), I'd love to see what people are doing with them as well.

I wish it would be more cost effective to finish an 80%, but finished receivers are more readily available and well...done.

Yah the problem is that the 80% cost so much, finishing them is super easy and there is no DROS or 10 day wait.

Im working on a jig to drill the buffer tube by hand without having to rent or pay out the rear for a full jig. The rest of an 80% AR is easy to finish with a hand drill and files, the buffer tube is the hard part.

I am not sure that home-made 80%'s are covered by this OLL senario.:confused:

And why would that be pretty sure they don't know who has them so they don't know the make and model.

how would they not be covered ?

unless they aren't completed in that case they aren't firearms yet.

Why not...I'm the manufacturer, and its not on the list anywhere that I can see :D

I have it in writing that we can make our own long guns in California, from scratch if you want as long as its 30" long, and has no evil features (or a pinned mag which would allow the "bad" stuff)

No serial # needed, unless you plan to sell/transfer it.

Are you planning on going to KT ord ?

A few friends and I did that bit about 2 months ago while looking for property in kalispell.

Talk about easy.

They did it for the AR15? Thats awesome. I heard KT's stuff good, but I heard theres other places to get 80% AR15 lowers. What would be really cool is if we could do a 1911!!!

That's a cake walk he has 1911 kits also what ever material you desire if the tooling will handle it.

Your enticing me. I am down to build one AR15 and one 1911. I think. The 1911 for sure. Its hard for me to say the AR15 for sure because KT's price is 200 for an 80%, and the Tannery shop wants $125. I guess it comes out a bit cheaper than transfering a completed one from Mega etc. Did your buddies also hard anodize them?

I have a brand new tannery cast 80% lower in perfect shape, never been touched...

I'd be willing to work a trade for a 100% AR lower...

Or enough $$$ to go and outright buy one and DROS it...

My tinfoil hat is gettin kinda tight these days, Im loosening it up a tad, and I dont mind a DROS receiver. I used to try to avoid DROS and paper trails as much as possible, but its still a long gun so its not as restrictive

You have a 80% Tannery Cast AR or 1911? I just assembled my last AR15 lower I had left. I am waiting on funds for an upper. Are 1911 frames cast or forged? I want forged if they have them

I have a cast 80% tannery AR lower.

I don't "do" 1911s....especially in .45. they are tolerable in .38 Super.

I am gonna wait for a build party to be setup first. I am gonna do the 1911 first and maybe an AR. I'll do the AR when I can justify its worth it to myself.

I recall a thread where bwiese discussed how a home-built-1911 would be considered an unsafe handgun according to california law, so I would seriously look-into that :/

If we don't get an OLL .308 in 2007 other than the Vulcan, I will be building from an 80% AR Lower from KT.

I just posed that question in the handguns forum. Apparently theres a letter floating around that makes personal home built handguns exempt from the safety test. I need to get a copy of it tho.

I have a KT-15 80% that I'd be willing to sell, I'll list it in the Firearms Accessories section in a few days unless someone here wants it. PM me.
