Hey guys, I think I have decided to machine a 0% lower just to gain experience and improve my skills. I used to have a C&R FFL and shoot high-power rifle as well, but I have been out of the gun scene for some time now.

Anyways, where do you find the 0% lowers?? Everyplace I look all that I really see is 80%. Those places that have 0% listed all appear to be out of stock.

Thanks,
Ed

Not sure why the raw forgings aren't available, they used to be plentiful and cheap. Maybe people were hoarding them thinking the next president would ban them?
Anyway, you could just start off with a block of 7075 aluminum.

DS Arms has or had them. I've bought 0% upper and lower forgings from them. I just checked and they aren't listed right now. Probably worth a call to inquire though.

No one seams to have them listed now and if they do ... "Sold Out". However, after literal hours of searching I did finally find 2 sites with 0% lowers listed. One wanted near $60 (closed the site quick, don't even remember who it was LOL). The other site AK-Builder.com had them @ $23 each. I have a couple on the way.

Yes I have, thanks. I was actually looking at how to, prior to deciding to actually purchase a 0% and came across his instructions at that time. Reading through those instructions was kinda the deciding factor to purchase a couple.

I've got a 5 gallon bucket full at the shop ya'll can have for 20 bucks each plus shipping, I was going to machine them but never have. Priority Mail Flat Rate would be reasonable for shipping.

At the rate I'm progressing getting to the surgery it'll be well into next summer before I even get started on any builds. After seeing the surgeon on Thursday he wants me to see a specialist on Pulmonary embolism in paralyzed people he's sure I should be not taking Coumadin the rest of my life. Then it's mri to see my spine for the surgeon to figure how to fix it. Sounds good but it sure don't get me back in the shop making a bit of money to help live . Thanks
