80 Percent Arms has just introduced their new Easy Jig Gen 2 router jig. I bought their Easy Jig Gen 1 router jig to machine some 80% lowers and thought it was awesome, but this new Gen 2 jig looks amazing. Not only is it Multi-Platform (can do AR-15, AR-10 and AR-9) but it also only requires that you drill one hole to get things started, features a vacuum hose attachment and it protects the jig templates from the drill bit so they never wear out. I think I might need an upgrade!! Check out the details and video in their press release below.
The 80 Percent Arms Easy Jig Gen2 is available now at an introductory price of $199 through the end of July 2017 at www.80PercentArms.com.
Easy Jig Gen 2 Multi-Platform fits every brand of AR-15, AR-9, and DPMS style .308 lower. 90% less drilling is required. Jig templates never wear out. An integrated vacuum cleaner attachment makes clean up a breeze. These are just a few of the many improvements that together amount to the greatest advancement in jig technology since we introduced the world’s first router based jig in 2013.
Rainier Arms is known for only selling the best of the best products. You won’t find anything other than above average quality items there. When I saw that they were selling the new MILSPORT ARMS 80% 7075-T6 lower receivers I checked with the guys at Rainier Arms and they were really excited to have access to these very high quality lowers. Many people mistake the idea of an 80% lower as “a way to save money” when in reality it has nothing to do with that. It’s all about providing a way for law abiding citizens to exercise their right to build a non-serialized firearm. They are not sold in as high of quantity so they typically cost a bit more. However, Rainier Arms is offering these at an introductory price. Normal MSRP will be $90 but right now they get to offer the first run of them for just $49.95. Details and purchase link are below. I’ve also put a link to what I personally have seen to be the best machining jig on the market that will help you finish any lower in about an hour with just a hand drill and a router with amazing results.
These 80% AR-15 Lower receivers are forged in the US and are machined to mil-spec tolerances. Build your next custom rifle using a quality machined Milsport lower that are proven and tested.
— Radius are machined and blended
– 7075-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum
– Mil-Spec Precision Machining
– Flared Magwell
– Front magwell is textured for grip enhancement
– No FFL Required
– Made in the USA
The operations left to be completed are as follows:
— fire control well
– trigger pin hole
– hammer pin
– trigger hole
– safety selector hole
This is a not an FFL item. This is not a complete receiver and still requires machining to assemble a working firearm.
The MILSPORT ARMS 80% Lower Receiver can be purchased for a limited time at just $49.95. http://www.rainierarms.com/milsport-ar-15-80-lower-receiver-raw
