    Default What did you build yourself

    OK I did a search and in general there's nothing that I can find that is general to just building without it being specific so I thought I would do this instead. Considering I have been building a lot lately and I know there's a bunch of you that are doing the same here you are. And I am in the process of finishing up the other half of my Spartan 80% build so here we go.

    Very nice, love the oil rubbed bronze look (looks like my kitchen fixtures).

    Just finished my first 80% build in April. Nothing spectacular but I did it all myself, it works, and I do like the Kryptek finish.

    Thanks!

    I've added a flip-up rear sight since and moved the optic forward on the rail...actually a lot more when I line up TWO sights plus an optic target.



    Not bad for my first try and milling is actually both fun and a few relaxing hours alone in the garage.

    Have a second one milled out for an AR pistol now.

    milling out my own lowers is what I love it opens up so many options you can buy 80% custom ambi lowers billet etc for a fraction of the price you pay for a finished one. I always keep a few extra you know just in case.

    Nice brian, those have a good bit of hole prep and rivet smashing. Did you do them by hand or with an air hammer?

    by hand, heated them red and had at it....it was the milling of the bolt parts that was a real bitch, that stuff was seriously hardened.

    Gotcha
    I just beat mine into submission w/o the heat. I tried a few test rivets with an air hammer, good way to make tracks on a receiver and look like crap lol

    Yeah you are not kidding. Harder than woodpecker lips.
    Uzi bolts are the same.
