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
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
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
Cameron Henrichs: Could you mill mine for me ?
Alex Fernandez: Is the lower still good if I overcut like say a tenth of an inch or a
hundreth of an inch?
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
Jordan Baumgardner: Thank you, for helping truly protect this land and it people.
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!
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.
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.
snteevveetns: Do you have a video going over how to complete a "0%?" (Just the forging?)
thanks for the great video.
David Daniel Wouters: is this legal? You're essentially making your own firearms (or at least one
step up to that)
reado33: OK OK OK OK OK
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
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.
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.
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?
reado33: can someone please tell me how many times this guy says OK is it more or
less than 761 times?????
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.
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.
Anthony Seneck: I Agree with everything you have said in this video
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
Phu Ly: Thx for the guide, very much appreciated for taking your time in making
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.
Mike Hurn: Great video, and even greater message. BANS ARE BAD. Thanks for spreading
the message brother. Molon Labe.
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!
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...
Robert Russo: please make a video on how to do the tramming on this mill thanks
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!!!
David Daniel Wouters: I'm watching this from within the netherlands.. not sure if that legal
go fucyourself: yeah.... I'm pretty freaking serious about this crap! lol. i approve of this
video doc! keep on keeping on
Paul Thorla: I like this guy. He's on point.
armstrong2052: Liked subscribed :)
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
John Smith: OK...perhaps this is a stupid question....but...You can purchase stripped
lowers for less than a hundred bucks...what is the advantage of doing all
this work other than making a potential unregistered weapon...?
Bobby Blunts: He said a full auto AR is an assault rifle. Turr turr turr!!
canid song: For inexperienced machinists (in the loose sense of the word), table stops,
set very carefully, could make this even easier.
The Rodog: @ 16:51 love it
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
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.
Frederick Kaludis: I wish to say thank you for these videos they are very clear and detailed
with the info that a novice need to hit on his first time on base.
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!
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.
