Just put a magpul pmag(I think gen2) but it will not drop. Shaking it doesn't drop it either. I have to use quit a bit of force to though it down motion to get it slide out half way.



Buffer tube end plate doesn't sit flush like my other 80% or 100% lowers. Doesn't look like much but in person you can see it.
With a magpul grip that has the beaver tail thing you really can't notice it.

i mean guys its 40 dollars cant really complain to much about little defects here and there. one thing all of us should remember about 80 percents is these are to be BUILT FROM HOME so of course they will need some work to be completed or to function.

Sounds like it's more of a QC thing then an intentional act to leave the parts unfinished.

Just a note, it isn't the bolt catch roll pin hole that it missing. It is the hole for the bolt catch plunger and spring ..... and yours is not drilled as shown in your picture.

I've seen this same issue on Anderson 100% lowers, I've seen stocks that overhang a bit, I have two of them and both have the issue.

Got mine today as well and Im seeing alot of the same things that everyone else is seeing. The bolt catch spring and plunger not drilled. My gen 2 20 and 30 rnd and 10 rnd pmags dont drop freely but will fall out with a shake. The latch plate extends below the frame. Lastly and of little consequence but the side of the pivot pin spring/detent housing is missing that little hole

I must have gotten lucky. Just tested all of mine and not seeing these issues.

Tested with 10/30 pmags, m3 10/30, m3 10/20, m3 10's, and all USGI mags drop free.
I tested all my 80% with a mil-spec buffer tube and it all fit with no slop.

My only issue so far was one of the lowers buffer tube threads was dinged. Grabbed a flat head and de-blurred it and buffer tube went on fine.

I compared these to my TM 80% and they look identical.
They don't look as nice as my QD 80% but were only $40, pretty happy with them.

I received my 80% yesterday and the bolt catch plunger and spring hole hasn't been completed as well.

But... It doesn't matter for me though since I will be making a dedicated .22LR, but I did order another 2x 80% which will be arriving on Monday and I hope those will be A-OK :/

I am getting conflicting info from them now. Just got off the phone with Anderson and spoke with MG and he said the bolt catch plunger hole is not drilled out. But my conversation with Tom on the website differs.

Either way it's an easy fix. You need a 1/56 drill bit.

I think its a 5/32 drill bit and you drill about .620" deep.

For those that don't have a jig yet, cncguns ar15 jig has the hole in the jig to drill the bolt catch hole.

Did anyone order a lower parts kit from Anderson? I did and the hammer is missing the pin retaining spring inside. I'm starting to wonder about their QC...

Just curious.. what mill/presses are you guys working with? Ive done two with the cheap harbor freight ones and the chuck always gets loose on me... then it starts drilling deeper and deeper. The lowers still worked though. (only used on .22 upper)

Wait for the harbor freight mini mills to go on sale then use 25% off coupon.
Not the best but works great for 80% lowers.

I use my drill press to take out most of the material then use my mini mill to do the finish work.
Works better and I've had great results.

I know. 90% people say no to side loading a drill press the other 10% do it anyways. I've done it, not advising it, and I'm still here with all my fingers and everything still intact. There's probably one person here that does the same as I did. I'm just curious what people have got their hands on. Also if you could give the price of an affordable setup that'd be great. I'm no machinist and don't really want to dish out upwards of a grand just to drill out 1 or 2 80%s

I suspect the bolt catch hole for the spring and detent were not drilled out because the rear take down pocket has been completed as shown in one of the pictures. Just my thoughts on it......never do you see the pocket finished unless another operation is needed....I suspect it would not be an 80÷ otherwise?

Would love to have a full size knee mill, but don't have the space.
If you know and understand the limits of the machine, it works fine.

But if you don't want to spend at a minimum 800, I would suggest getting the jig that you can use a router.
I've seen some lowers done that way and it works pretty good.

$60 jig! I think this should work fine. Seller also has one without the bits and drill adapter for $10 cheaper.

BTR 80% style 15 jig (drilling and/or milling)

That one is 70 with no bits. But the one on eBay states only works with lowers that have the rear already milled out, which is perfect for these Anderson 80%.
But would not work with most other lowers like TM, QD, etc.

I believe that "universal" jig that you use the router with is only for their 80% right?

I've heard people have success using it on others. Not sure which lowers though.

You could use a router on any jig.
I'm on the ipad but here is a link to a video where a guy uses a router on his jig.

Hope that helps.
