I'm in. My daughter was on a traveling softball team so I could never make it to any of the other build parties. Now the season is over and I have a few kits to build.

Considering I was too busy helping others I totally forgot to blast/park one of my rifle.....the answer would be I'm down for a party.

I'll bring the usual press/jigs/tools to support the party, whenever that might be.

I must say.. Having 6 or 7 presses was great. I've never had a bp where everyone was done by 3. That's just crazy..

I would love to see a Sunday party since I work on Saturdays and I am sure that a swing shift party on Saturday is out of the question. Maybe when I can get my side yard cleaned up of all my wife's friends crap that she has been storing here, since she foreclosed, we can have a build at my house.

I am interested, but as a complete noob would probably just want to learn and get in the way (um, I mean help ) since I have nothing to build yet. Any one have a link as to what I should buy if I do want to build?

You'll need a parts kit, US made Fire Control Group(rifle), Flat, Rivets, Center Support, and parts to meet California and 922(r) compliance.

Ok well, something came up on the 23rd(bday party) so I'm just going to lock in the 16th. So block your calendars, get your kits, and reserve your spot!

If you need receiver flats, triggers,maglock,rivets,922r,featureless grips,etc.- get in touch with Duraglock. He will be at the party with parts for sale. Make sure to tell him in advance so he has time to ready your order.
