80%

  1. Pistol Permits
    I see the new big thing is 80% pistol frames. Looked into it and think I would be cool to make one but can you put it on a permit? Can you go to the ATF and get a serial number then put it on the frame?

    Not trying to start any arguments about them or how to finish them. Just looking for a good place to buy some decent ones from. And a good jig. Thanks.

    I couldn't find an answer to this question by searching the forum -- although the issue may well have come up. Has anyone actually submitted a registration form for a gun they built using a self-made receiver (i.e. an 80% receiver you finished yourself)? I have a couple I need to register...
  6. The AR-15
    I would like to let anyone that either has, or is considering PM'ng me for for info, help or to use my equipment to mill an 80% lower that I do not respond to such inquiries. Call me paranoid if you like but especially members that I have never interacted with or with extremely low post counts...

    I see these for sale and see jigs for completing them for sale all over the net. I understand that they are not considered firearms by the ATF so there is no serial numbers on them. What is the benefit of completing it yourself?

    now im sure they have been around but i discovered 80% 1911 frames for sale. i see this is becoming a new trend with 10/22 ar10 ar15 and even ak and possibily sks but never did i think a pistol frame was being made. now question is with no pistol permit can i legally do this. now i know i can...

    Jut trying to get a feel for everyone's opinion here. From what I understand after talking to a few people, it IS legal in NY to build an AR from an 80% lower, with the firearm remaining unserialized and unregistered. Can anyone here confirm this? Going forward, if it were legal, what parts...

The polymer is easier to deal with than aluminum, and they say you can use hand drills and a dremel tool for completion. Get 'em before they...

    I have a "preban" (pre 2013) 80% lower I have been working and I after reading the law I have determined I would like to finish it as a pistol lower. Does anyone know how one would do the paperwork to register it as a pistol? I know I need to put on a serial number and manufacturer info on it...

    Is there a business in Central NY that can perform the machining needed to finish an 80% lower?
  15. The AR-15
    How hard is it to finish an 80% lower? I can get one for $115 is that a decent price? Sorry to sound like such a noob but I really know nothing about ARs thanks

    Now Playing - WBEN Seems a little pricey especially with all the rocket hub projects going for 25-50 bucks but the Obama YouTube video is humorous. The trigger, hammer and selector holes seem really easy to mess up without a jig.. Just thought I would share.

    I sold my old milling setup in favor of an end mill for more accurate machine of other parts. I got into the entire thing because I wanted to make my own 80% lower. Now, I enjoy machining everything. It's a lot of fun and I have some ideas regarding other parts that do not exist! I had no...
