Build a firearm with AWC original AR-15 Jig for use with AR-15 80% Unfinished Lower Receivers.
Our AR-15 Jig is finely crafted in the USA from high quality 7075 T6 Aluminum with steel inserts. Each 80% Lower AR-15 Jig contains side plates and top plates for easy use for beginners to experts to build an AR-10 Firearm. Our 80% AR-15 Jig is made to work with most 80% AR-15 Lower receivers. American Weapons Components offers both billet and forged 80% AR-15 Lower receivers that are sold separately. Our AR-15 Jigs can be reused to build several AR-15 80% Lowers.
The jig comes with a left and right side plate that clearly states which side the plate will go to and locks into the lower through pins that are inserted into the take down pin holes. Once the side plates are assembled on to the unfinished lower receiver then the top guide plate fits into the pin holes on the top of the jig, covering the receiver and exposing the area where the pockets will be milled out. Our jigs come with 3 top plates that are marked 1-3 and on each a notation of which end mill size to use and the milling depth. First you will want to drill some holes to the stated depth on the first plate and then begin milling. once you have milled out the entire section to the correct depth on the first plate you will switch to the second plate and then the third and follow the mill size and depth for each. Finally you will turn the jig to the side with the steel rings surrounding the side plate holes and use the jobber drill bits to drill out the side holes.
The AWC AR-15 Jig comes with a red Anodized coating and an embossed AWC logo to authenticate as an original. Purchase AR-15 Tooling Kit sold separately to take guessing out of drilling.
