I'm also interested. Also where would you recommend I purchase an 80%? Are they all similar quality wise?

I have a good supply of TM 80% lowers for anyone that wants them custom engraved before milling.

I know I've said it before, but I'm now finally about two weeks out from being able to host small AR mill parties at my shop.

Long delays from moving into the new shop space and getting the mill retrofit with flood coolant. Simply need to clean the shop up now and get things in order.

CNC mill for the FCG pocket and manual mill for the three holes, with a TM Jig.

I don't mind making the trip to see Roccobro, he really does great work and is one knowledgeable guy. But I'm in the OC way more and it would be nice to have a closer option considering the number of 80% lowers that I've completed.

I'm down for OC if someone can set it up

Ares is setup for TM AR15 and AR10. $65 to use their machines. The last party in San Diego were doing QD lowers.

@Couch - Let me know too. I'd like to get my 2x 80% completed ASAP and send for anodizing before the end of the year.

Check out Danco.net. They have a shop in Arcadia which another Calgunner has used for 80% and 100% lowers. They also have Ontario and somewhere else, but not sure what their policies are.

Very slow on email so suggest to call.

Otherwise A to Z in San Diego (only for 80% unless you want to wait) and someone else down that area too. Their minimum batches are a bit higher ($90).

Wasn't directly quoted from Danco, but was told to expect about $105 OTD for 2 lowers.

Was also told Arcadia has a lockup, so can leave the 100% over night until they can anodize it and you can pick it up. This is all hearsay until I remember to actually call them during the day.

I'm also very interested in an OC build party for 80% paperweights.

Unless they have an FFL they can't legally keep possesion of the completed lowers without the owner being present during the entire process. It has nothing to do with having a safe place to store them.

I was thinking of holding one in San Diego in a couple weeks, but I still have to build the fixtures. I was going to do them on a 4th axis so it would do the pocket and pin holes in one setup.

I am setting up to do 80% builds as well. This will take place in the Antelope Valley area. I will be setup in January, also I will do the anodizing as well.

Great to hear. Please keep us posted. My Dad is in the area and we have a few 80% lowers to complete.

Will this be CNC? We were going to run them on our manual mill.
