    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?

    all i need done for me is mag well , and rear tube ring cut out I can do the rest so when i get it it's not even at 30% so it's still a legal finishing job from me

    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.
