Before I go out and buy one, I would like to know if there are any gunsmiths or machine shops in the Richmond area that will mill 80% AR lowers.

As I recall, some folks got in trouble for this years back. You are supposed to do it yourself, without engaging a commercial entity or something because they effectively become a manufacturer. That said, there are folks on this board that have a tremendous amount of machining experience, and I am sure they can point you in the right direction while still keeping everything legal.

You are absolutely correct sir. He must do it himself. If a machine shop did the work on his behalf, they become the manufacturer and they'll be putting themselves into some very hot water. If he does it with guidance, that's different, and legal.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like a lot of hassle. Think Iíll pass.
