How To And Tips For Milling An AR Lower From An 80%




What do you think about this video?

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

Argelio Del llano: What's the law on this 

Alex Fernandez: Is the lower still good if I overcut like say a tenth of an inch or a hundreth of an inch?

snteevveetns: Do you have a video going over how to complete a "0%?" (Just the forging?) thanks for the great video.

reado33: OK OK OK OK OK

Cameron Henrichs: Could you mill mine for me ? 

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. 

Casey Hosier: way to freaking long. shorten it bro

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?

Anthony Seneck: +usmcdoc14 Have been wondering what state do you live in? If you don't want to answer that I understand as well.

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.

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.

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

bakosteve1985: your videos are awesome thanks 4 taking the time and making them

Anthony Seneck: I Agree with everything you have said in this video

Phu Ly: Thx for the guide, very much appreciated for taking your time in making this video.

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!

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.

David Daniel Wouters: is this legal? You're essentially making your own firearms (or at least one step up to that)

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. 

Natedoc808: "smacking your crap against your other stuff" = priceless!!! great video and very good instruction for those trying to tackle this out of the box. Love the levity and straightforward approach. Molon Labe!!!

Mike Hurn: Great video, and even greater message. BANS ARE BAD. Thanks for spreading the message brother. Molon Labe. 

Pat McBride: As far as the argument about the founders not foreseeing future firearms technology is concerned, the arguments fall flat when smacked in the back of the head by reality. The Kentucky Log Rifle was superior to the front line British musket and used to kill British officers by sniping. They were the top of the line weapon of the day and in the hands of civilians. Had the British used bolt action rifles, the Americans likely would have had semi or full automatics.

Paul Thorla: I like this guy. He's on point.

go fucyourself: yeah.... I'm pretty freaking serious about this crap! lol. i approve of this video doc! keep on keeping on

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.

armstrong2052: Liked subscribed :)

The Rodog: @ 16:51 love it

Vince Anders: As a machinist I'm glad you said to tram your mill. If you are curious the equation in use for rpm is (cut speed of material x 3.82) / diameter of cutting tool. But great vid

Sir David Haddon: ooh rah, Second Amendment, and Free Speech ! Thank You for the schooling.

sosocrazy1234: hes right, the founders were smart and they were students of historical warfare and they damn well knew the evolution of battle and battlefield tactics and weapons over time. they intentionally used the word "arms" in the second amendment because it is used to refer to all forms of modern weapons, otherwise they would have said "muskets." people who say "arms" refers to and is limited to a musket needs to be kicked in the head, because they are stupid. plain and simple...

thedubiousbaker: you know, with like, handtools nd crap.

William Kennison: Doc, to hell with the kittyticians I'm taking the plunge and found an AR lower jig that takes a hand drill and router to finish the job... will give you an update when everything gets together and the job gets done. What do you know about etching line art on the magwell with cerecoat? I'll need the opinions on it. 

John Smith: swear for me

canid song: For inexperienced machinists (in the loose sense of the word), table stops, set very carefully, could make this even easier.

Hunts4Food67: Great video, thanks for sharing!

Robert Russo: please make a video on how to do the tramming on this mill thanks

shane locke: I thoroughly enjoyed this video and have completely revamped my current method which now seems mediocre at best. Thanks alot and harbor freight had just about everything I needed good call. Look forward to more videos. 

HOTSAUCE: Cool as dude here! Really like this video. And I think you did a very good job explaining for those of us that aren't machinist and won't be doing much machining other than this. 

Jim Shellhamer: Where did you get your digital travel displays? After doing one 80% with my mill, I would really LOVE to get a set of those!

David Abernathy: Thank you for the vulgarity, it makes a more relaxing and BSing type of lackadaisical mood.

DBD510: thanks for this powerful knowledge brother!

Tucker Not Sucker!: Should make videos for people with basic tool knowledge. This would avoid having to wait until 50% of the video is over before the mill is even started. FYI.

niigonbenasi: put your headphone on 

Hitman0341: Anyway to do an M1A platform?. I love my SOCOM and National Match way more than my ARs

Henry Fu: Enjoyed your AK build series. I've got one question on this video as someone who has absolutely no experience with running a mill...why can't your drill down the center of the jig without touching the side until you reach the desired depth and from then start cutting out the middle?

Freed america: needs to gey more organized

j corvett: nice video! i guess we could ask people in Chicago, or Illinois, how gun control is working for them. lol
