    I believe HLF Manufacturing updated their site today. The price for their 80% lower went from $90 to $120.

    Well, that's a little dissapointing although I'm not too surprised I guess. I would still pay 120 but that is getting really close to the cost of a billet one.


    I was wondering - how compatible are the various Jigs on the market with all of the different brands of lowers? I would imagine most jigs made for the cast/forged lowers would be interchangeable because most of them (if not all) have the same outer profile. I am guessing that the jigs made for the billet lowers would not be interchangeable since most of the guys making billet lowers do some stuff to 'fancy it up'. Does anyone know?

    Sadly I can't make March 2-I hope it goes well!! If there are people still interested in finishing other receivers later it would be awesome to make this a quarterly event or simply have occasional build parties!

    Ya, i plan on doing another AR build in the next 3 months, but i also wanna do a few other builds, like ak, 10-22, and 1911.

    I am already planning to convert my mini mill to a cnc machine, and i have already found cad files for everything i could ever want to build.

    It would be cool to make 80% receiver kits for all of those, then throw a part and let people finish their own.

    And while the mill is rolling, we can use my 3d printer to make 20 round ar mags (the 30 aren't holding up so well so far, need to redesign them more) I use magpul followers and springs.

    Chris at billet80 did quote me 165 if i do 25.. (15 less than it is now, but 15 more than it was when i bought might first round, although they are nice as ****, if anyone wants to check one out let me know.)

    I'm good for about 5 more, and he has told me he is working on upper right now, with no set release date, so i will probably see if he will cut me a deal for a stack of those as well.

    What about the newest Defdist 30rd mags? They seemed to hold up pretty well on the vids??

    still interested in milling at least 1 80% (preferably a couple though) if we do a group buy and can get them for a decent price.

    I'm more interested in the DIY aspect than the sneaking behind The Man's back with an unserialized rifle aspect. I'd love 5 ARs to go with the 5 Marpat sets I got from SmileDocHill, but I can't see spending more than $100 for any of them, preferably closer to the ~$300 I spent for the packs for the five 80%ers.

    Alternatively, I've detailed plans to melt, cast, and forge my own raw blanks IAT.
    I failed the Voight-Kampff test.

    If you do this let me know-I would be interested in helping with that project-some years ago before I discovered 80% lowers I had made similar plans and found it significantly more difficult than I anticipated though my funding and time to devote were less than I have now. But I think casting aluminum would be an interesting and valuable skill that I would love to learn more about.
