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

David Daniel Wouters: I'm watching this from within the netherlands.. not sure if that legal either...

Argelio Del llano: What's the law on this 

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...?

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.

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

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

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.

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. 

Bobby Blunts: He said a full auto AR is an assault rifle. Turr turr turr!!

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

Chip Oclassen: Are serial numbers obsolete?

boskinay: I am a machinist of 20+ years and really enjoyed this video. I do have a question as I know very little about fire arms. I understand the upper and barrel need to be ordered for the caliber I wish to use but what about the mag well? Does it need to be broached for the caliber as well or are the cases pretty much a standard size on the outside? Thanks in advance for any help.

MW2pawner123: i like the second amendment tattoo 

Greg False Flag: 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.

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!

Shawn Mitchell: Hey Doc, Great video. What's that vise you're using?

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

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. 

anorangeandanapple: video downloaded thanks man

GunRun13: Did you use a 7075 receiver or 6061 receiver?

mercury90hp: OH SHUT UP. BLABLA...BLABLABLA. Get to the freaking point! If you have to explain everything like yer talking to a retard,then they dont need to be building a firearm. Get a bag of Ricola cough drops for the annoying throat clearing crap. Great info...just get to the fking point.

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?

moparhemple2: Have you ever used a 80 percent polymer lower

MIKE CHAPPELL: I can't seem to find the answer to this question anywhere, but I am quite sure you would know. I have the same setup as you, harbor freight mini mill and the igage readout. My question is, my hand cranks (X, Y) are really tuff to turn resulting in it being very choppy. How do I fix this?. I have loosened the spacer screws to the point where there not even touching, obviously that can't stay that way because it's wobbling when I crank the wheels. I am really new to the machining world, so any advice would be appreciated. 

Casey Hosier: way to freaking long. shorten it bro

Drew4078: Great video! Thank you for the big help in many areas. This video is just perfect. I plan to buy the same milling machine from the harbor freight here in Washington. Thank god my state will allow me to build my own crap. I too am serious about this crap! Any ban is BAD! Your bolt tatts are freaking sweet to bro, great idea. Thanks again.

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. 

Tim Malcolm: I am a machinist and a licensed gunsmith, and I just need to tell you how often I screamed like a girl seeing your setups. You cant DO that!!!! It's just not kewl!!! Just kidding! Great video. You give good advice for a novice and this will help a lot of people. Loved the PSO too. And the tats. WTH, you rock. LOL! 

Mark Jenkinson: Sir, By way of introduction, I'm the founder and president of a new little company Present Arms Inc. We make firearm work stations. You have a great series and a large following. Would you be interested in trying out our Gunners Mount. We've been selling to military, Law Enforcement, Govt. agencies and civilian user. I think your find it of value. Kind regards, Mark Jenkinson mjenkinson@presentamsinc.com www.presentarmsinc.com

John Smith: swear for me

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.

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

brentfoto: I threw up multiple times on my screen watching 12 minutes of this video-not due to the content-but due to the camera work! ;-). Otherwise, good video, and informative for the layman. I also liked the political appeal that was made.

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!

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

Ben Raines: This video is outstanding. Everything is explained in great detail for accomplishing this task. I think this is the best video for milling an AR lower available. I agree 100% with your politics! If the gun owners don't stand together we will fall individually. Take a stand! Thanks! Subbed ya!

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

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

niigonbenasi: put your headphone on 

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.

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. 

Johny Vegas: freaking awesome! I trust the people with the guns way the freak more than I trust the government with them. At least with the people, the majority are going to average out and eliminate the influence of the most destructively radical. If the government could build an army that wasn't made up of its own citizens, we would have been completely enslaved years ago. Eventually, I'm sure they will remove all human decisions from war, both abroad, and eventually against us, except orders from the very top. Look at the robots that Boston Dynamics have been building for DARPA. I have no doubt that they will deploy fully autonomous killing machines at some point that are under the direction of a few people. I think if our government no longer served the interests of the people of the United States, traditional weapons would become partially obsolete, and explosives would become an increasingly important means of defense against an increasingly non human army. As I've read in Popular Mechanics recently, they are working on making fertilizers that can't be used for explosives. We might be wise to master techniques of producing explosives as well. That scene from the original Terminator comes to mind.

Idtelos: very nice.

Bart Van Riel: Right on man, I learned a lot from you and thanks for the awesome video.

Zack VanDyke: The video is good, very good in fact. But you keep emphasizing that nobody is to give you any crap because this is for the "total novice", like myself. But you keep talking about end mills and collets(?) and all kinds of other crap that I have never heard of. If this is really for the "pure novice" you need to dumb it down even more. I'd love to be able to use this kind of stuff and the price seems to be good. But at least for me, it's still too complicated, the way you explain it. I get it that you are trying to keep it simple but simple for you is Greek to me.

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