10% CNC10/AR10 lower receiver group buy
« on: May 22, 2007, 03:11:25 PM »
I've had some guys wanting me to produce some 10% AR10 lowers.  Mitch at Khalan.com said he could complete the 10% lowers for those who didn't have the equipment to finish it themselves.  If I can get about 20 names on a list, then I'll look into doing a group buy for the AR10 10% lowers.  A ball park price for the lowers will be $275.  If you are interested, please email me at justin@cncguns.com

Thanks,
Justin

The image below is a 100% AR10 lower... the 10% lower will of course have less machining done to it.

Ok guys, I think there might be enough interest now to make a short run of these.  The AR10 10%'er will basically be the left and right side machined and then the buffer hole drilled and tapped.  There won't be any other holes drilled.  I will however center drill the spots on the left and right side of the receiver (see pics below).  The price will be $250 + $10 shipping.  This will be a very limited run.  As most of you know I've been waiting a while for enough interest to be generated in these AR10 lowers, so once this batch sells out I probably won't make another batch for a while.  I plan on starting this batch here in about 3 or 4 weeks.  I'm thinking it'll probably take me about 3 weekends to complete them all.  So a rough completion date will be sometime around the first couple weeks of November 2007.  

I'm now accepting payments for the AR10 10%'ers.  Please contact me before you send payment.  My email is justin@cncguns.com

I'd appreciate it if some of you guys could put the word out over on AR15.com that I'm making a batch of these.  I can't advertise there since I'm not a paying industry partner... I would be if their fees weren't so much.  It's hard for your one man operations to spend thousands of dollars on advertisements.  

Thanks,
Justin

I had some changes in my plans and I was able to complete these 10% AR10 lowers sooner than planned.  These AR10 lowers are just like the ones I made for my AR10 project.  They are designed to work with the Armalite uppers.  I know they will work with the modified M14 mags, but I believe you could cut the mag well so it uses FAL mags instead.

A while back I talked to Mitchell at Khalan.com and he said he would finish these AR10 lowers for guys.... similar to what he's doing with the 10% AR45 lowers.

The price is $250 + $10 shipping.  I accept money orders or cashier's check.  Please contact me before you send payment.  My email is justin@cncguns.com

These AR10 lowers won't last long, so get'em while they're hot!  :D

Thanks,
Justin

Hi everone

As a way to let everyone know how things are going.  Why doesn't anyone that sent an email, note it here and how many.

I requested to be on the list for one.

I'm interested but I don't know that funds would allow it for a while yet.  What mag would these use?

More than likely they would be like the AR10 lowers that I made for myself and use the modified M14 mags.

Gotcha.  I'll stay in the tentative column, after shooting on a military 800M pop-up range today I'm leaning towards a bolt gun for .308...

I'm good for one. Right after my wife forgives me for this AR-45 thing !!! :-*
Yes, I'd like an M240 please...no no, the other one, the belt fed!  Oh, and while I'm here, let me also get a big gulp, a powerball quick-pick, and a pack of Marlboro's, Thanks.

justin,

is there any way you would consider milling a DPMS 308 lower?

i don't know everything that is involved in re-tooling or re-milling, just an idea.

thanks

How is it different than the Armalite AR10?

*How is it different than the Armalite AR10?*


There was a pretty good picture of an Armalite upper on a DPMS lower somewhere on AR15.com awhile back.

The double radius on the rear of the Armalite upper is replaced by a single radius like the AR15 on the DPMS.

The Armalite upper fits onto the DPMS lower, but there is a gap between the upper and lower at the diagonal between the two curves at the rear of the upper.

It doesn't look like a DPMS upper would fit on an Armalite lower.

I'm not sure exactly what the DMPS radius dimension is.

If thats about a clear as mud, I'll look for the picture and link it.

I will be ready by the time we have 20 verified interested....As long as the AR-10s look as good as the ar45 10% pictures....$275-$300. OK, count me in.

What are the chances of getting them at 80% ? My concern is cutting the mag well. I'm in for possibly 2 if they are more than 10%. The guys at the club were impressed with my AR15 builds and may also want a few, but not at 10% as I'm the only machine operator in the group. Thanks

I will probably stick with 10%, since I don't want to be in any gray area with the ATF.  Justin

I'd guess at least 2 or 3 months out.  There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of interest right now.  If you guys can drum up some more interest then this thing could become a go sooner. :)

Thanks,
Justin

Justin, just out of curiosity, how many paperweights do you need to make in a batch in order to make a group buy worth your while? How many pre-order commitments do you want to have before an AR-10 run is a go?

I need at least 20 FOR SURE orders before this can become a go.
