So I always wanted to make an AR clone by milling my own reciever. I figured it would be fun for the whole family so I bought a set of plates and a little router and some 80% lower blanks. I got the plate jig from 5D tactical. It was a bit pricey but we carved 5 recievers perfectly the first time and everyone made one. It was very cool. Then we bought kits to complete the builds.
Overall it went well. I did mine first and shot my detent pin off into the grass. I had to make a magnet thing to find it but finally got it and finished my build of a 10.5" "pistol".
I spend a fair. Amount. Of time in the absolute dark in the rain checking on stuff like animals or a barking dog or whatever and wanted to make a 'night gun' with a light and a laser and a reflex sight. I figured I will never be shooting past 50 yards at night so distance is not a worry.
When I finished the build it kept jamming so I tore it down and lubed it up. Also the safety was... Sloppy. Not sure how else to describe it. So I stretched the spring out so it had more force. That was a great fix and the lube fixed the misfires. I will take. Apic of it when I get. A good sling made and a 50 round mag... Anyway cheers to everyone here and given limitless space how would you guys build an awesome gun range across a field?
