Default 80% AR15 Build Parties in Sacramento Area?

Are there any 80% AR 15 build parties using CNC milling equipment going on in the Sacramento area?? I've been looking everywhere on the forum and nothing in this area is showing up....there must be some interest here I would think. Thx

The price of 80% forged lowers is approaching the price of 80% billet lowers. I was thinking about getting a couple of the billet variety, but will they work for the build party? Or should I just stick with trying to locate the normal forged lower?

Looking forward to a party in the new year!

Never done anything 80% so I might have a lot of noob q's.

What are the ballpark prices for:
Forged =
Billet =
CNCing =

I'm a NOOB too, but here are the 80% lowers that I've been looking at. Not many stores have them in stock, so I'm not sure how accurate the prices are (they might go way up when they get stock), but hopefully it will give you an idea for prices:

Hey Folks...

It certainly looks like there is quite a bit of interest in attending a cnc build in the Sactown area...but not so much for hosting the event as yet.

Seesm on the forums can help you mill your lower manually...it's more expensive than using the cnc machine but your host is a great guy, very knowledgeable, and you will leave with a lower you'll be proud to own.

tuma702 in the Chico area sounds like he is planning monthly builds but it is quite a drive .... although this may be the ticket.

Jason_2111 is the man to see in the San Jose area...but his events seem to fill up fast and then there is the drive as well.

I was contacted by a builder who was in the process of planning a party in Rancho Cordova...but the event has not been posted publicly so I won't mention his name. He would provide the place and machine for a very reasonable price but the caveat is you would have to purchase one of his billeted blanks...no forged paperweights. This might be the way to go if you have not purchased your forged lower yet.

I will certainly let you guys know if I hear anything legit that is not posted in this thread...keep responding with your wants and maybe this will encourage somebody out there with the knowledge and equipment to get this rolling.

Oooops I hope I didn't goof-up. I just purchased a billet lower. That shouldn't be a problem for being a billet as appose to forged?

Dr-Death I'll send you a PM as soon I have a ballpark idea when the thing ships out. Hopefully the tracking number will be e-mailed by weds or thurs.

Thanks.

Has anyone set up a party yet? I just ordered an 80% and it should be here within the next 2 weeks.

Anyone?
