I thought I'd seen it all in the centerfire rifles section...




...until I saw a thread about milling machines.

I don't wanna blow up anyone's spot, and if anyone intends to do this they should probably go in a group not tickle in over a few weeks, but there are usually machine shops you can use for a day in your area. San Diego, LA, and San Francisco have them for sure. They're intended for nerds and artists unaffiliated with institutions, and gun nerds surely count.

Hmmm....you write the program for the lower, figure out a good zero point on an 80%, clamp down the 80%, set zeros, then the owner of the 80% hits the 'Go' button on the CNC. 20 people on a Saturday could make you some serious $$.

I would push a start button for $100.00 dollars. Maybe three times in one day if you know what I mean.

check out this place. For $100 a month, you get to use all their expensive cnc machines.

Yeah but would they knowingly let you work on gun parts?

Not just a gun part...you are essentially manufacturing a firearm. The lower is the gun, in the world of BATFE and various other agencies. I know it is completely legal for a private citizen to make and own, but I have to wonder about the legal issues that would go along with a commercial enterprise doing it for profit...would they not need a manufacturer FFL? Or does the fact that the owner himself is operating the machine get around that?

Yeah that's what I was getting at. Afaik it's legal for you to use someone elses machinery as long as you're the one operating it. I just doubt that company would want you using their cnc for machining lowers.

They should not need one, like the last part of your post says the owner himself is operating the machine. The business is just renting a machine, they are not making anything.

You need the FFL if you are making lowers to sell. They are not selling lowers, just machine time.

I wouldn't feel right doing that plus I don't know how to program it.
