AR-15 80% Lower with Jig Kit
The Polymer80 80% lower receiver kit contains everything you need to start your next build. Lower receiver is constructed from a single block of proprietary polymer composite with a solid core design, stiffened magwell and beefier buffer tube housing. These lower receivers are 80% finished and require final milling of the fire control group, trigger pin, hammer pin, trigger slot, and safety selector.
The included jig system provides an insert for trigger hole drilling, and also includes the necessary drill bits plus end mill bit to finish your lower. Because the receiver is incomplete, an FFL is not required for purchase. – $68.99
I’m interested in the Glock 80% kit, but not sure just what all it includes and what else I’ll need to buy to complete the gun. Please tell me what else I’ll need. Thanks.
Additional items that you need to purchase to assemble a functional firearm:
1) Barrel, slide, guide-rod/recoil-spring.
2) Hardware kit with trigger and connector, slide and magazine releases, springs, retention pins.
A barrel and slide will be pricey, on the order of $250 (rough estimate). Guide-rod and recoil spring are inexpensive at $10 or less. The hardware kit may cost anywhere from about $60 to $120 depending on who makes it and who distributes/sells it.
Thus, your total cost to make your own functional handgun is about $500 give-or-take, which just happens to be about the same price as purchasing a completed handgun. And that price does not include magazines which cost about $16 each for Magpul magazines which are compatible with Generation 3 Glock handguns as far as I know. Factory Glock magazines are even more expensive, about $25 each.
As you can probably tell, this avenue is not about saving money. Rather, making your own functional handgun from an 80% receiver is about the hobby/satisfaction of making your own functional firearm — which incidentally has no serial number and is unknown to state and federal governments (to the extent that you trust state/local governments are NOT monitoring Internet activity to firearm parts distributors and credit card companies — which I most certainly DO NOT).
… and the ATF raids companies for their customer lists, and we all get knocks on the door at 2 a.m., and the jackboots kick in the door and shoot our dogs.
Seems like a sword that cuts both ways.
that’s what i got yelled at for saying the same about tracers…
That is why you chain your 80% AR receivers outside in your yard and only feed them every other day so they get mean like pitbulls.
Want a mean AR lower? Put a 450 bushmaster upper on it.
It seems that pretty much anything gun/ammo related is out of stock these days.
I doubt 80 kits will have the same value boost as AR’s and mags did during the AWB and if the feebs are actively looking for things to confiscate instead of Anne Franking your 80 build you should be setting ambushes with your neighbors.
After buying your lower, send the same amount of money to Donald J. Trump at his Save America PAC. The Save America PAC has only taken in $86,000,000.00 and needs more. Donald J. Trump will use the money as he sees fit. Per Donald J. Trump do not send any money to the RNC. If you see the RNC use his likeness in soliciting for funds tell the Save America PAC and they will die. As Donald J. Trump said last week, the capital police welcomed the Trump supporters with hugs and kisses. That is what really happened. Support the Save America PAC.
Hell now, use that money to buy lowers!! Donald is pocketing 75% of that $…..
I’m tempted to ask 80% to make a AR-lower sized unmachined block of plastic and sell it as a 0% lower, just to test whatever regulation the ATF comes up with.
Would you accept a 0% lower made of aluminum? 😉
, a business with a sense of humor, that’s neat.
Those 0% lowers are just aluminum bricks, but they still won’t ship them to the People’s Republic of New Jersey. But they also won’t ship t-shirts to the People’s Republic of New Jersey, so I think it’s more of a company policy than a law.
I’m not buying a damn thing gun related with anything but cash in person for the foreseeable future.
Always have always will, and now we can do it with a mask on.
Itd be great if we could also run anonymous nics numbers, I’ve turned down some gunm purchases because I thought they might be hot. And I’ve done went through that, the seller gets jail and the cops get the gunm and you dont get your money back.
Hurry up now and use your personal cc to buy directly from polymer 80 so that the AFT can pay you an unannounced visit and snoop around your house with a rubber stamp warrant. No need to pay the vet to euthanize Rover, the AFT will shoot him for free….
Well played on the “AFT” reference.
I have an 80% pistol all ready to drill with mags and slide kit. If prices do start to rise, I’m selling instead of building.
No, I’ll just wait for the 78% lower to hit the shelves.
I’ll just buy the finished product. Which will be zero until I can walk in Walmart and buy bullets.
Kinda sad when you’ve got more booze then the liquor store.
I’ve got more ammo and ammo variety than the closet Cabela’s. Went there last week to check what they had…all was regulated to a small wheeled shelving unit behind the gun counter.
I think you mean relegated.
You could say they were regulated/managed behind the counter, but yes…relegated. Typing on a phone at night isn’t best for grammar or spelling.
Pretty much looking for ammo now…and a sling for my AR. Several gunshops were sold out of “decent” slings & only had Walmart quality crap. Go figure. As mentioned I’m not buying online to get on a “list”.
Rest assured that we’re all already on every list they have.
Yup, long since given up worrying about what lists I’m on. Privacy is an illusion.
Agreed. The only folks not on the radar are the mountain man wilderness types, but then they go and sign up for reality tv shows. 🙄
True. Everyone is now on the list. Those of us commenting here are certainly on the list. I’m sure there are multiple lists and some people are nearer the top of the list.
Still, I wouldn’t buy an 80% lower online or with a credit card. I’m not really interested in 80% lowers anyway.
If I’m on a list its somthing I said( this phone ain’t mine) and not what can be proven Ive bought.
Has anyone wondered why grandma couldn’t get a free government landline?
Cell phones they give away, everybody gets a cell phone.
I am quite ignorant about building AR’s; I do own two completed ones. Just how much work is needed to complete a rifle once you have purchased an 80% lower? Do I need special tools/drills/etc.?
thanks for enlightening me
Except don’t use google, they are evil.
The short answer is that you typically need a mill or router to remove bulk material from an 80% lower and then you also need a drill to drill holes in an 80% lower receiver. Beyond that, all you would need are simple/basic tools (e.g. pliers, screwdriver) in most cases which almost everyone already has.
Note: if you are attempting an AR-15 build, then you will also need a special AR-15 “wrench” to complete an AR-15 build. That special “wrench” has specific shapes/features for the specialized nuts and fastening rings on AR-15s. (Think of that wrench as the AR-15 equivalent of an oil-filter “wrench” or home water supply particle filter “wrench”.)
If I am not mistaken, people call that special AR-15 “wrench” an AR-15 armorer’s tool. They cost around $20 or thereabouts.
Would a pair of vice grips work?
Oil filter wrenches. , I have driven a screw driver through the filter and used it.
This article and advice illustrates everything that is wrong with the typical gun owner and gun writer.
Advising people to hurry up and buy guns that may be outlawed in the future, or ammo which, historically, has always come back down in price after the panic subsides.
But what’s even worse is advising people to react to and comply with every new gun law or threatened gun law. Yet these same gun owners and writers claim to be the vanguard of revolutionary spirit and resistance to government authority.
What a joke.
ok, so desire to obtain that which may become unobtainable is reactionary. you’re a mess. no, you are. no, you.
I want neither a Glock or an AR-15, so no need for me to buy any of these.
