usmcdoc14: I am replying so I can delete your post. TAS Firearms, If you wish to get
exposure off my work then you can send me some of your products to build
and evaluate. There is no free lunch, only my free instructional videos
Christians.Vs.illumination: USMCDOC14 your video has helped me tons! I would love to see you build a
Radius 1911 build.
Chris Turnblom: I disagree with your definition of assault weapon. The term is completely
If I assault you with a spoon it can be considered an assault weapon.
Just because a gun shoots automatically does not mean you can only use it
to assault people.
Don't give the idiots any ammo.
FuYing Bro: I love your PSA. Although I did an 80% on a $130 drill press and $40 x/y
vice. Of course it didn't come out as good as yours. I was just saying that
you can do it with less that what is shown.
Smitty: Lol oh look its all shinny and #@%& ...
DONT TOUCH IT leave it alone
You had me laughing
Zakk Young: taking a weekend with some bros and making some AR-15s sounds awesome. good
video. Might ahve to see if my grandpa wants to guide me with this
Kennard Lang: Thanks Doc. Great grief-saving tips. Getting ready to tackle two -15's and
a -10 with ambiguous instructions; a decrepit, somewhat square drill press;
suspect jigs; patience; calipers; and your gracious demo. Flew Spectre over
Mog and other places in the 90's and felt honored to let you guys sleep
peacefully. Semper Fi.
rdsii64: finally knocked out mine last night. I was up until 3am. its not as hard as
most people think. YOU DO HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING
THOUGH!! I under cut my fire control pocket by 2 or 3 thousandths because
I knew being a novice it was going to come out looking rough at best. One
final skim pass this morning and this baby is ready for a parts kit.
pinkeye00: Send me a check bitch.
megadeth22885: a drill press with a 2-axis milling vise for a drill press is realistically
all you need to do this, $100 for a cheap drill press and another $60 for
the vise.. plus the proper endmill bit
ChickenPimp J: Where did you get your spec papers? I ordered two of the alum lower 80's
and got nothing as far as drilling depths. I didnt get any specs nor, even,
a website to go to for looking at any specs. If I ever order any more Ill
be going through a different distributor (unless the guy starts adding some
info on machining and building these things).
NM, Im checking your website, now...maybe Ill find what I need. Semper Fi!
MrBlurry2011: Are the AR Jigs universal? meaning can i use one jig on 2 different 80%
lowers? Or does each lower require its own unique Jig?
rdsii64: Just installed the absolute DRO from igaging on my z axis. It was a pretty
strait forward process. I'm not to concerned about DRO for the other two
axis' yet since the lower is mounted up in a jig. If you haven't yet. you
gotta get the Tormach Tooling system. No more hitting your drawbar with a
hammer to get the collet out. The starter set up for a manual mill with an
R8 spindle is just under $190.00 plus shipping.
Emil Pienczykowski: Thank you for your patriotic spirit and teaching. Hope to see more people
david smith: thanks for the video I used my buddys mill after watching this video it
took me 4 hours to mill it but it turned out great BTW first time I ever
used a mill
Heriberto Venegas: On your blueprints is there any GD&T involved. I would like to calculate
some steel-safe nominals and keep it within tolerance.
gorgeous george: yes stop calling the ar 15 an assault weapon,,,just because many of your
heros like diane feinstein call it that,,,its not,,it is a semi auto
rifle.dont work against the gun owners movement,....
AZ DieselTech: No gloves! Everyone wants to wear gloves. Glad that you're not, and you
made a point of stating the obvious for the beginners. You snag a finger
you can pull it away. You snag a glove and it pulls you in, you have ground
beef. Great video. Learned some things, and knowledge is the most important
thing we can arm ourselves with.
Haywood Jablomie: Is there such a thing as an 80% .50 cal kit??
William Hall: Great video! Thank you
rdsii64: Well I pulled the trigger last night at work. During my break, I ordered a
solid column Sieg X2 and a belt drive conversion. I'll order tolling later
this week. looking forward to going back over this video after my mill has
been delivered. Lucky for me the 80's I have came with accurate drawings.
Now its lots of studying and messing around with scrap aluminum to learn my
The fist hog I kill with my new rifle I will dedicate to freedom and the
michael neyman: mute, take it easy pencil neck
matt lemon: bless you for teaching the populace.... knowledge should be open and free
for the people. Governments will try. But people like you are keeping the
nunya biness: For those who have a better mill, use a 7/16 cutter. The radii in the FCG
pocket are supposed to be .218. I run a 4 flute 7/16 with a 1.3" cut depth
at 1,000 RPM for most of the process (I do the main pocket in two steps),
then kick it up to 2,500 for final pass, climb milling ~.010" material.
Personally, I like to cut 7075 al dry; easier chip clearing, and won't hurt
cutters at all if your speed and feeds are right. Having said all this, if
you're using a bench top, as he mentioned, they simply won't hold the
tolerances, and the lower pocket that is supposed to be .438" (7/16) at the
selector lever will grow on you. I spent a long time with the little
Seig/HFT mill; it'll get the job done, but you have to take light cuts and
constantly check your dimensions. Tighting the gibs will help with
chatter, but makes those little cranks very tight, which *will* cause
carpel tunnel over time.
Sean Talley: You sir are my freaking hero I really cant express it enough. They can take
my guns from my cold dead hands.
thomas lowe: Hey i got a question for you, im about to start on my first Ar build, im
using the jig from 80% the easy jig, and the only things i need are the
drill stop collar and the router, (and of course the complete upper
receiver) and i was wondering what size and type of router bit would you
suggest to use on finishing up my lower, i have the general idea of how to
do it, just need some specifics now on the router bit to use
Anthony Seneck: I Agree with everything you have said in this video
Michael Costa: I am with you, I am not a criminal.
Jordan Baumgardner: Thank you, for helping truly protect this land and it people.
Haywood Jablomie: What a GREAT guy!! A real American!
Y Pop: I had to unwrap a man's hand from a drill press because he was wearing
gloves! I never ware gloves when machining!
Kyle Hobson: Hi im 14 and really want an ar 15 im one of those "zombie prepper" types
and want one for my survival kit and also for hunting as I know that the ar
15 is a very reliable and comfortable gun for me I want to know if you have
any idea if it would be legal for me to manufacture and own one please
reply it will be very helpful btw I will be 15 before I can get ough money
to buy the parts
Gabe Hartman: DOC are you a green shoe or brown shoe, my brother is a retired Navy
surgeon, who was assigned to a Marine unit. Oh and thank you for this info,
I love it.
rdsii64: Been watching your videos. Love your work. I have two DPMS pattern .308 80
pecent lowers in my safe.
I am about to pull the trigger on a solid collum HiTorque mini mill. Once
I save for a three axis DRO and the tooling, I'm all in.
Hell I might even try to make a video of my progess. If I take it that far
I will be sure to credit you as a source.
Semper Fi Brother
reado33: can someone please tell me how many times this guy says OK is it more or
less than 761 times?????
MasterK9Trainer: I appreciate you putting yourself "out there" and it's one thing to read
books or plans, but it's invaluable to see someone actually do the work to
demonstrate what it takes, what is required and how hard or easy it is to
do a project. I have two brothers and we were born in Quantico, Camp Lejune
and Cherry Point, so I support marines.
Stresscat1: I did not see the VZ-58 build on your sight. Could you do a VZ-58 build
using the Hellbox Armory 80% receiver?
xmodfreak2011: That calipers advice is golden. Was using some random manual calipers
(like ruler status, not even a dial), totally read it wrong like an idiot,
and punched thru the floor of my lower. Epic. Fail.
kpw528: +usmcdoc14 Just curious, I saw you say somewhere in a comment that you were
from Virginia. What part of VA do you live in? I also live in VA and it'd
be awesome if you were in driving distance, so maybe I could come over and
you could teach me about milling an 80% lower. I'm really interested in
building my own AR, and the concept of 80% lowers is awesome to me because
I'm a hands-on type guy and love building/working on things. Semper Fi and
thank you for your service, and for the awesome informative videos!
Argelio Del llano: What's the law on this
The Rodog: @ 16:51 love it
Johnny Maggiore: I didn't even know what a drill press was until I watched this video. I
have watched this video several times before, I really want to start
building my lower soon. I am very excited and this video will really help.
The only part I was confused on was the drilling depth I need, and the bits
I will need. That's all, thanks.
YungBossk: Quick question. I see your 80% doesnt have a trigger guard. But on the
website you give billet80 all the 80% they have come with non removable
trigger guard. Did yu buy lower from different website? Just need to know
bcus I need 1 without trigger guard for the grip I am using
Steven Ford: Great skills, nice work, I'm a fan. O.k. Now that it it milled what about
the finish? Do you prefer to powder coat or anodize and die? I'll keep
watching your stuff. Love your abilities and your attitude.
Anthony Seneck: +usmcdoc14 Have been wondering what state do you live in? If you don't want
to answer that I understand as well.
UncleDeluxe: Nice video, thanks! On a side note- damn, there are some douchey blowhards
on your comments page for your free video, that you spent the time making,
which they have absolutely no obligation to watch if they don't want to.
Cameron Henrichs: Could you mill mine for me ?
Phu Ly: Thx for the guide, very much appreciated for taking your time in making
Sir David Haddon: ooh rah, Second Amendment, and Free Speech ! Thank You for the schooling.
