Looks great! Unfortunately I have none of the machinery required. Looking for someone I can rent the equipment from and get some help going through the process

why is everyone wanting to buy "80%" and wanting to just push a button ?

all you need is a drill press and some initiative

I'm actually working on a WMR 10/22. Get a quality drill press or go to a machine shop with a Mill and request to drill the hole for the barrel which is the most critical.

I used the Tactical Machining 80% for mine and was quite happy. Here is some further info I put together.

The TM jig is nice in that it fully surrounds the receiver and locks it in place with the end pieces. Just do not use the end piece to square up on, use the sides. The steps between the Razor and the TM have got to be close as there are not that many of them for the 10/22 80%.

There is a write up here. You have to sign up for the forum to read it, but it is easy and no real personal info required. Is well worth looking around anyway to see what other folks are doing, and in my case, admire their skill.

The TM Forum has a thread here. And here. Look around the rest of the forum as it is informative as well.

CalGuns Member Woodey put on a build party and the thread is here. On page 3, DEF23 posted some good info. They debate the good and bad of the two different brands as well, so it's a good read and may help you decide on the Razor vs TM. I choose TM because I have some of their AR lowers and they are very clean compared to a couple of other brands 80% lowers I have seen plus the CalGuns discount. Either way you go, it will work.

The following is the list of steps I put together for myself (so I don't screw something up) for my TM build. There are minor things I left out about positioning and squaring, etc., but the main steps are all represented (or over represented with the multiple drill passes). The 10/22 receiver only requires a drill press, no milling is required. Others may complete the receiver differently and some steps may be easier in a different order on different equipment. I also did the drilling in multiple steps and think it produced better centered holes, but I'm sure one could do it with just the correct size bits in one pass without reamers. The TM jig has slightly oversized bushings and I found by using the tightest fitting bit without removing any of the bushing dimpling the center, and then coming back through with a undersized bit in the dimple and then reaming to spec products prefect holes for me. Always, always, always square and confirm square before each operation and on each movement of the jig.

The receiver is very tight in the TM jig normally and I had to use grease and a rubber mallet to put the receiver in the the jig. I tried hand fitting it multiple times and then called TM to confirm things were right, they gave me the grease or soap and rubber mallet solution. It is nice and tight that way.

10/22 80% Steps
1. Any engraving must be done before starting if you do not wait for it at engravers or engraver needs FFL once the receiver is started.
2. Square up vice and jig before starting
3. Drill first side bolt buffer with “pilot point” ¼” bit to create divot for next drill
4. Drill with letter “B” bit through into fire control pocket
5. Ream ¼” bolt buffer hole
6. Drill trigger group 3/16” holes to create centered divot
7. Drill trigger group holes with #15 bit through into fire control pocket
8. Ream 3/16” trigger group holes
9. Flip to other side
10. Repeat steps 1-6 on other side
11. Drill stock screw hole with 3/16” to create center divot
12. Drill stock screw hole with #16 through
13. Measure fire control pocket and expand with end mill if needed evenly on both sides
14. Raise Head of mill
15. Drill ¼” rear cleaning hole
16. Drill ¼” V-block holes .75” deep with “pilot point” ¼” bit
17. Finish drilling v-block holes with #16 all the way through
Confirm jig is squared before starting step 18!!!!!!!
18. Start barrel hole with 11/16” to create centered divot
19. Drill through barrel hole with 43/64” bit
20. Ream barrel hole to 11/16”
21. Drill recoil spring guide hole 3/32” .1 deep
22. Insert 4 legged magazine hole jig into receiver with three pin side in barrel hole.
23. Drill magazine retainer hole 5/16” .140” deep
24. Tap v-block and stock retainer holes with #12-24 tap (3 holes)
25. Finish as desired
26. Marvel in accomplishment

Again the most important thing is too make sure the barrel hole is absolutely straight with the receiver.

TM was changing it's jig relative to the barrel hole and stock screw, so if you get a newer jig, those steps require their own ordered procedure, but should produce a better end result.

Hope this helps.

Is there anyone in the Antelope Valley or LA/OC/San Berdoo area with the tooling and Jig that could supervise me while I finish my TM 80% 10/22?

Drop Joe308 a line. He's in Lancaster. Don't know if he has the jig for a 10/22. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/member.php?u=12824
