I thought I would try my hand at building an AR15 from a kit, ordered a kit with an 80% lower from Ceratac. $324 for a complete gun is pretty cheap. No idea how good it will turn out.
I started with completing the lower receiver. Made some side plates out of acrylic (cause I have a LOT of it:D) to hold it in vise and followed the dimensions on a blueprint and did some drilling and milling. It turned out good and got it assembled today

My AR-10 started life as a 80% and turned out great. Your build looks to be well on it's way. :)

Well it didn't turn out as good as I first thought------the upper pin would not fit into the lower:(:( but with just a little dremel work--all is well.
