    Default 80% lower jig

    What 80% lower jig do you recommend and why?

    I would use a router with it.
    They call me "Simple Jack".

    Depends on how much you want to spend and how many you plan to build.

    This one is VERY nice and give you a lower that looks like it was done at the factory. www.5dtactical.com It's not cheap by makes it real easy to finish an 80% lower.

    Thanks. It is for a build project. Probably only one. It's ok if I mess up a lower in the process.

    Both jigs a excellent.
    Follow the instructions and you'll be fine.
    If you mess one up, it makes an interesting paperweight.

    You might ask around to see if someone has one they would rent or loan to you.

    I have a nice one from 80% Arms. Easy Jig.

    Also, I found reviews on routers for doing lowers. This was the top-rated one: Dewalt DWP611

    Damn. As much as I would like a 80% lower because Constitution...I just find them cost prohibitive, not having any of the tools already.

    They make Polymer 80%s that are cheaper than aluminum and you can do them with a cordless drill. $80 for lower, jig and bits.
