    My one on this site done it yet? If you don't know what it is it's basically the following in the most simple terms
    - a non registered legal to buy lower ( no FFL needed shipped right to your door)
    -it's about 80% complete you just need to drill out all the parts using a jig you also buy... There is supposedly tutorials out there and most of them come with instructions
    - legal to own not sell according to ATF

    I just want to know how hard it is to a complete novice... Didn't find anything using the search from the app...

    If you just want one for yourself, it is a pretty expensive proposition. Much cheaper to buy a stripped lower. I built one last year that the parts would fit in, but it was too ugly for me to put a picture of the build on the forum. I might try it again in the future. Takes a lot of patience, and be prepared to go through a few drill bits. You need plenty of work space, and a lot of time for your first one. Just trying to give you a heads up.

    Trying to make a project with my friend... Is a milling machine necessary or a drill and a lot of bits good enough?

    Drill press for sure , not sure how well a hand drill would work. If you have access to a mill , the tooling and know how to run it properly it will make your job much easier

    polymer 80% lowers exist and are much easier to work with. I've seen youtube videos that claim they can be complete in under 90 minutes.

    I've never personally seen or worked with one just watched a video.

    Well I went on rockethub.com and funded a couple of companies and they give you the lowers once they are funded... So basically got some for dirt cheap... Might take a while to get here but either way good investment... If it does not work out I could still sell them for between 50 and 100 each... Only bought for around 25 each... But I think if me and my friend out our heads together and try hard we could have unregistered AR's! I'll look into the polymer one thanks

    I don't understand the laws well enough.

    Well the ATF site states that as long as you can legally posses a gun in your state if you build a firearm for personal use and not for resale... I'm pretty sure you still need to follow magazine restrictions... I'm from NJ

    A machine shop that will rent the CNC with the specs programmed in. That's how they do it here. You walk up and mount it , close the door and press start. Just search local machine shops and call around.

    Would they have the specs or do I need to download it? I'm very new to this thanks for all the info... Google machine shop NJ? Then call and ask of the rent out their CNC mill?

    Ya , if they are smart they already have it programed in. I not they can get the specs on line. But then It takes hours to program. Best bet is to see if anyone already has it set up. My guy has it for AR15 and AR 10.

    They do but any program written in standard Gcode/Mcode can probably be ran in any shop in the nation.
