80% build parties in Chico, CA
 
We are still up and running on our build parties and we moved to a much larger shop with better facilities. I am still getting shipments of lowers just not as large as before so were still going to be able to get people through but just not as fast as we were before but if you want to attend just shoot me a pm or email and Ill get you down on the waiting list and well get you through as soon as I can.

I have also been getting a lot of questions about my pricing and if I am raising prices due to the demand and with everything going on and the answer is, "I have not and I will not".

The machining is all done on a cnc mill so the process is completely automated so no prior machining skills are needed to run the machine its basically load the machine and push the green button and watch the machine do its thing.
And if your are nervous about any of the steps we are there to help guide you through the process although you have to be the one actually handling the lower and running the machine

We are primarily set up for tactical machining 80% lowers but we can run others such as colfax or QD if you have them

We just got our first shipment of the rudius 1911s in this week and we are focusing all of our free time on getting set up and testing so we can start offering the machining on those.

We are still also waiting on getting ar10s in stock and as soon as we can well be cutting jigs and writing the program to be up and running on those as well

I have never even considered this as I don’t have my tools in Chico. I really don’t need another lower but this would just be cool. Keep me posted, I may be interested. Guna spend some time in google.

Oops, didn't read it was ar-15.........already built my fair share but would still like to get to know some local calgunners.

AR-Tuma 09-13-2012 5:19 PM

In the future this build party will be expanding to AR10's as well as our Rudius 80% 1911 frame when it begins shipping in November.

I am still looking for a place to do an AK party, I cannot fit more than two guests in my small shop. If you know of a place maybe we can get a party together.

mntgirl 09-14-2012 9:32 AM

Please excuse my ignorance, i am new to Cal-guns. What is an AK party? and what is required of one who would like to join?

it's exactly what it sounds like, a party where people build AKs. Unlike assembling an AR, building an AK with a flat and parts kit is more complicated. You will need tools and guidance ( if you have not done it before).

Sometime these parties are free, most times you pay a small fee to the organizers. Tooling and fixtures aren't cheap, and the expertise that comes with these parties is priceless. Sometimes you can buy kits from the organizers, sometimes you order your own, but the key thing is that YOU must do the work. People can help guide you, give you instructions, but you are going to do the work to actually build it.

How did this get turned into an AK thread???

Very interested in all of the above.
I also have a fair amount of metal working and machining tools I would be happy to share(what its portable).

kentactic 09-14-2012 11:10 AM

Is someone already bringing plates and napkins?... This will be just swell.

Jeepers 09-14-2012 11:14 AM

Sorry, was responding to a user who thought it was an AK build...

I have done my own AR's, just for giggles I am considering doing an 80% AR, if and when the details work out, maybe an ar10 and 1911...
