    Hey guys what am I to do with the 80% receiver I've got...I don't have the equipment to work that thing. Does anyone want one? I'll send it free if someone does. My email address is in my profile.

    Polish it and leave it on a coffee table as a conversation piece. See if guests can figure out what it is.

    Hey guys.....Windpoint first to reply at 7:04 AM, so i think it's only fair to send it to him. I'm sure you all would agree. I was torn between polishing it up and use it for a conversation piece then my wife told me "every time you see it you'd get pissed-off at yourself" so I agreed. Thank you for your replies though.

    I couldn't give you an honest answer, I too one look and knew I couldn't do it because I don't have the tools and wasn't going to buy any just for that so I gave it to someone that could. Go to
    #5 above and reply to mac66, I'm sure he can help you better.

    Couple ways to finish them. One uses a drill press, another uses a router. A friend of mine bought 5 with the router tools.

    He did the first 3, I did the last two with him standing over me. His first one was rough. Second one better. His third was very good. Mine were both pretty good. It's not hard to do but there is definitely a learning curve involved. It helps to have someone who knows what they are doing and can talk you th

    Just realized I didn't finished my sentence. I meant to say it helps to have someone walk you through it.

    As for doing more, maybe. He was going to order 5 more blanks so I might as well grab a couple more for future use.

    To be honest I didn't really do the 80% thing to have an untraceable gun. I did it just because I wanted to see if I could.

    It's know one business why you learned to work the 80%, I want to learn also for the same reason as you. But I know one thing I make one I'm using it:supergrin:

    Hey mac.....I know this is an old thread, But I was just curious as to if you've done another 80% or not?
