Default 80% AR lower machining in the Central Valley.

Is there any interest in a 80% AR lower build party in the Oakdale area? I am trying to talk my friend into writing the program for his cnc mill. Let me know if its worth it to twist his arm!

If you do something that close to home for me, I'll help you twist!

Thanks for the interest. I have the TM jig, it just would be so much easier on the cnc. I will keep you posted.

legal issue here guys... maybe...

You and you alone must complete your lower. If someone else does it, HE is manufacturing the gun for you. He would be required to have an FFL mfg license, then transfer that gun to you.

I suppose that if you and you alone hit the grren "start cycle" button on the cnc, then you have completed the firearm.

This is just me wondering.

Plan would be to have owner put lower in fixture, press go, remove ,deburr and assemble lower with guidance. Also checking into another legality issue, owner of machine shop is a 07 ffl holder.

Thanks for the interest guys. Owner of shop wants to make sure he doesn't jeopardize his ffl, plus he is pretty busy. I will keep you posted.

Sorry this isn't moving faster, but the shop has been staying pretty busy. I will put some more pressure on him.

I suggest finding a place to do your machining that is not owned by an FFL holder.

FFL holders are heavily scrutinized by the CA DOJ. After the OLL drama at RMB back in the day, I see no reason to allow them access anywhere they don't need to be.

I spoke to the shop owner today and he would like to do them but his plate is full right now. We have discussed the ffl issue also, it is his call on that . I have access to a manual mill, TM jig and most of the tooling. That might be the route that it goes.

Ok here is an update. I spoke with my friend . He would rather not run it out of his shop. All is not lost though. I have access to a cnc mill that I am going to try and set-up at another location. I will let you know more as this progresses. If this does happen this sounds like it will be a dedicated machine for a while. Thanks again.

Still working on this. I have lined up a shop, now just need to get the mill moved over and wired up. Looking like it will be around the end of November. Hopefully there will be lowers and parts kits available. Stay tuned.

I have another questions for all of you. Setting up a day to run the mill every month or so will work , but what is the interest of doing the machining by appointment?

For me, appointments might work out better. Either way, I will find a way to be there.

Just saw this thread and yes I would be interested! Oakdale is not too far for me! So count me in! I would mainly be interested in ar10, but might do another ar15!
Would you be able to help finish QD 80%?

Your my hero! I am in the sacramento area and have been looking for a build party for me and several friends. We definitely do not mind driving a few hours to finish off our paperweights.
