Going to try my hand at building a few ARs, milling and drilling 80% lowers and assembling the rifles. I've got a jig, bits and tools, along with all the parts to build three rifles of different barrel lengths and styles. Any tips for an old beginner?

You won’t see many people doing those much anymore. With the price of stripped lowers now days there isn’t much benefits. Unless you wanna Be OfF ThE BoOkS.

Yeah, I just put a complete lower and complete pistol upper together for less than $300. At that price, I'll do that all day long.

I've put all the parts together before. But never from an 80%.

Good luck. Sounds like a good project if you have the proper jig and tools to make it happen.

Nice looking weapon. Palmetto State has the best deals on most things and seems to stand behind what they sell.

I've built a few dozen over the years for myself, and friends. It's definitely fun if you like to tinker, though the tolerances aren't as good as a quality factory rifle.

I look elsewhere and always just end up back at them for a lot of things! Lifetime warranty and I have yet to use it. Everything goes bang I've bought from them without a hiccup so far.
