My 80% build...
 
http://i1173.photobucket.com/albums/...1/8202d4f8.jpgStarted with a Tactical Machine lower, had it Anod type 3 at A to Z metal in miramar. Came back really nice just a little thick for the jig at the Ares Armor build but worked out fine after a little love, Ares Armor, two thumbs up!!

Purchased a Spk Tac LPK and complete upper ( mid length ) from Parallax Tactical, and some magpul gen2 sights

Is there a minimum order?

Dsdad 09-05-2012 3:18 PM

Nope just took my 1 lower.

yari 09-05-2012 3:24 PM

Oh man that's not bad.

Dsdad 09-05-2012 3:30 PM

Not at all I checked like a mad man for a place and just stumbled on a thread about anodizing and there they were. See Kent and he will take care of you

Dsdad 09-06-2012 8:16 AM

So got the LPK installed and a Prince 50 bullet button. Got a magpul 10/30 clip from parallax tact, everything went smooth just the saftey selector switch was hard to switch back and forth, after weighing my options tried oiling the switch b 4 cutting the spring or filing the detent, works perfect now.

Great, I feel a build...building

RazzB7 09-07-2012 7:10 AM

It looks good, I'm happy to help. Now let's get out and shoot that thing!

Marksman829 09-07-2012 8:41 AM

Tagged!! Does A to Z have an FFL on site so that they can anodize finished lowers or will they only do 80% lowers?

Dsdad 09-10-2012 1:56 PM

The End...:cool:

WRONG! Where's the range report?

Is the camera flash washing out the color of the lower or is it 2 different shades of black

RazzB7 09-11-2012 5:59 AM

You need to get out and shoot that thing. What are you doing Sunday? Bunch of us are going to SBR&GC.

Dsdad 09-12-2012 8:30 PM

Slight diff but flash is definitely a factor.

Does AtoZ metals have an FFL? Should I do the anodizing prior to finishing the lower?

me109g4 11-27-2012 3:42 PM

Do the anodizing prior to finish machining the lower, no chance of "Imperial Entanglements" that way.

me109g4 11-27-2012 3:45 PM

What was the timeframe with A-Z? Probably who i will have do it.

Dsdad 11-27-2012 6:48 PM

Dropped it off in the am picked up same day pm. See Kent tell'em David from across the street sent ya.
