Is that for the Anderson 80%?
The reason I ask is that I have wondered if I could somehow build a library of sorts that consists of jigs so that a guy could get an 80% lower and for say, $10, "check out" the jig for that manufacturer (They are proprietary) , finish his lower and send the jig back to the "library". They could finish as many 80% lowers as they are able to in the check-out time (say maximum 30 days) before they have to pay another $10 or have it back to me.
Of course the ATF would try and figure out a way to make that illegal, but its worth considering. Heck, if I had the money to bankroll it I would consider setting it up myself and trying it out. There has to be a million jigs out there that have been used and are sitting on a shelf now. I could work out a deal where a guy could donate a jig he owns and is done using it in exchange for the right to check it out at any time for free in the future. That would build up a variety of jigs, and even allow me to have multiple jigs on hand for one manufacturer of 80% lowers.
Alternatively, as the jigs are checked out and the $10 starts coming in, the donors would get paid 50% of the income until their initial purchase outlay was satisfied. After that they could get 10% for as long as their jig lasts (they are bound to wear out or get damaged over time) or they could choose the first right of use in the future at no cost...
What do you all think? Would you consider sending me your jig or working something out so that I could start this "library"?
