If you want to build an AR 15 from an 80 lower, you absolutely, positively need an 80 lower jig. Without one you are cutting in the wind and almost positively ruining your 80 lower. You must be an absolute expert or a computer to mill an 80 lower without a jig. So you need a jig for sure, but what you should also consider bundling your 80 lower jig with your 80 lower or lowers. Here are 7 benefits to bundling one of our 80 lower jigs with an 80 lower receiver.
1. Beginner Piece of Mind
When you start planning your first AR build there is a certain amount of apprehension and nervousness to ensure you get the right gear. There are always questions of quality and a fear of not having the right tools for the job. Bundling your all-metal receiver with a jig ensures you have the right receiver and the right jig to complete your build.
2. Cheaper When Bundled
Like buying in bulk, it’s always cheaper to go with a package deal. We carry a variety of jigs and have packages that can suit your needs at a great price. It’s much cheaper than buying the items separately. There is also added discounts when purchasing receivers in bulk with a jig.
3. Saves Money on Shipping
This is more of a logistical issue, but is still a real concern when building on a budget. Packaging materials together means one package total, which reduces the cost of shipping and handling. The same goes for buying a complete rifle kit. One shipping and handling charge gets you everything you need, 80 lower jig and receiver included.
4. Bundled with the Proper Tooling
One thing that is often overlooked is the proper tooling to finish an 80% lower receiver. Because you are slicing and cutting into metal, you need the proper tooling. Without it you’ll find yourself frustrated and changing broken bits frequently. All of our receivers and jig packages come with the tooling you need to finish your receivers.
5. Simplifies the Build Process
The right jig can make your life a lot easier. There are different tiers of jigs and the highest tier jigs aren't only tougher, but simplify things. Using our Heavy Duty 80 lower jig cuts the time to complete an 80 lower from 4 to 2 hours.
6. Our Jigs Are the Best
Jig range greatly in quality. Some are plastic, some are just stickers you apply to the receiver. Ours are made primarily from metal and come in three different tiers, rugged, tough, and heavy duty. Ar-15lowerreceivers.com’s jigs are easy to use, intuitive, and tough.
7. Simplifies Bulk Buying
Jigs are disposable items. They don’t last forever and can be used up through constant use. Imagine the frustration at buying in bulk and your jig wears out. Our jigs are paired with bulk orders and are paired appropriately to ensure your jig will not wear out halfway through your bulk order of lowers.
