Default Ares Armory .308 build party?

I was searching through some other threads and someone had mentioned build parties through ares armory in oceanside. I saw they do them three times a month but do they do .308 during those parties? I checked their website and couldn't find anything helping me out. I did notice they had some very beautiful 80% .308 AR receivers and a build party at the location would be great with access to a CNC. If they do not do those at the build parties, does any one know where I might be able to get it machined out?

We do AR15's and AR10's at our build parties at every build party. Only thing that has kept the AR10 builds low lately has been availability on the 80% AR10's. We have no set date when they will be in but they have told us that we will have them soon and will be the first one getting them as soon as the next run is done.

Are you from Ares Tuma?

If so, I appreciate you saving me a trip, was thinking about coming to Ares to make an AR10 this weekend. Also, I see nowhere to reserve a spot or the cost for use of equipment and instruction.

What pattern 308 are the 80% lowers ares sells? Magpul PMAG compatible? Larue/SR-25 compatible?

since you're here, 10/22? Chances are, I will be making a trip to you guys after the 1911 frames are delivered. Would be great if I can get a 10/22 done too.

Yeah I'm one of the scraggly bearded guys down at Ares lol. On build party days I'm the one that plays follow the leader down to the machine shop. We have a large amount of raw AR15's in stock and we will have anodized AR15's Friday after we pick them up from the metal finishers. When they come back in stock we do the DPMS LR308 style 80% AR10's. My distributor has assured me it won't be too much longer till they are in.

We have a few of the 10/22 80% receivers in stock right now. Only problem has been with how many AR15's we've been doing at our build parties we haven't had time to get the program wrote to do the 10/22's. We do everything CNC so getting the program done and switching the machine over is something that has just been prohibited by other projects lately.

How much are you paying your programers?' 10/22 that's a 15 min Job.

Any chance to cut a Quintin Defence 80% AR 15 lower at your shop?

I am pretty sure they are only set up for TM lowers.
