So you’ve decided to take the plunge into amateur gunsmithing and you’re ready to build your own Billet 80 Lower – great! If you’re on the fence, here’s why you should do it: You don’t have to deal with waiting periods. You don’t have to stand in line at the gun counter for 45 minutes while your background check clears. You don’t have to pay FFL fees. You don’t have to choose between “this roll mark” and “that manufacturer” and their prices.
Instead, you can get to be the proud owner of your own, truly home-built black rifle. Pretty cool. But why a Billet 80 Lower? Why not cast, or forged? If you’re seeking the best balance of weight and strength, look no further: These Billet 80 Lowers are milled from aluminum bar stock, an extruded (and crazy strong) piece of raw aluminum.
Maybe you’re somewhat of a gunsmith or metal worker already – this is the lower you want. The unique compound of a Billet 80 Lower’s aluminum bar stock allows it to be molded into designated shapes, offering the most potential for aesthetic. If you want to place your own roll marks, mill some designs into the lower, or generally work with fine lines, a Billet 80 Lower will be the best blank canvas.
