Weldable AR recievers
Anybody have exp with these kits. Jack squats has them for 25$ just wondered if anybody had used them.

Not entirely sure what your talking about. There are demil'd full auto receivers sold as decorative pieces or scrap restoring them is illegal. Not sure if that's what these are as you didn't include a link

seancslaughter 02-27-2014 04:02 PM

these ones?

stoneam2006 02-27-2014 04:12 PM

Yes those are them sorry didn't think about posting a link I have done the 80% rec that had to have mill work done

seancslaughter 02-27-2014 04:18 PM

I don't see any instructions on what type of welding equipment needed what type of rods to use or anything. Do you have experience welding and any equipment?

Ez2b 02-27-2014 04:22 PM

What do you think is the benefits over a regular forged 80 percent lower?

Looks like a lot more work


stoneam2006 02-27-2014 04:23 PM

Yes I am a welder/ machnist by trade. I would think a tig would but see no reason why a mig wouldn't work with proper prep.

stoneam2006 02-27-2014 04:25 PM

As far as a diy project the weld would be a lot easier as many people have welders but the 80% that needs trigger pocket milled requires a nice milling machine and a 80-100$ n-mill to do the job so unless you have access to this equipment not really ideal

seancslaughter 02-27-2014 04:26 PM

Yeah to me that looks like. 60% receiver and possibly a hazard especially if you have limited experience welding or limited equipment it doesn't specify whether you need mig, tig, stick or what type of rod to use plus you still need to do some milling anyways

Not so much milling as drilling and tapping. And that's a lot easier as a home build
