Cast and forging are mutually exclusive terms. It is a FORGING, not cast. This is not even an 80% lower.

Unless you have some really good machining skills, that is going to be a difficult project. Also, it says they are paperweights. Are you sure those things are made to the right specs?

Those paperweight lowers may be worth their weight on gold some day.

bingo J ;) you win the prize many are not realizing what could happen and if that did happen then something is better than pulling my pants down and waiting for a blue helmet to get me :eek: but what do I know.

I put that paper weight in a sock and i bet that zombie don't get back up lol

Legally, only you can finish the last 20% of the lower for yourself. Sounds like you've got that covered.

Yeah I just mentioned that because someone reading this thread who's new to unfinished lowers might try to get a friend to finish it for him. Which could cause grief for both of them. I have an 80% and it's a paperweight for now! :D

ar15-kits has 80% supposedly in stock but they don't answer the phone and voicemail is full. I thought of just placing a order with them online but wanted to call and confirm first they have a 80% ready.

And I am no ld school ar or gun guy but I am not a moron to what we should have to hold our papers with properly at all times! ;)

if possible to show when finished happily I will show. But finishing it isn't as hard as many of you make it out to be . Seriously it sin't rocket science ! Didn't any of you have metal shop class in high school or any other redneckish hobbies ?

0% forgings usually go for $15 or less.

My friends and I were once considering buying a few each for about $11 a few years ago.

Then we did a little research. Then we said NAW FKit. WAY too much work. 80%ers are more work than most people want to do. And that's only doing the last 20%. Unless you have a 6 axis CNC machine I'd pass on this man.
