5 Benefits of Buying an 80 Lower Jig Kit

Part of the appeal of building an AR-15, AR-10, or AR-9 from scratch is that you get to part your new rifle or pistol together piece by piece. But what about those juicy bundles and combo kits? Are they worth it? Do they save you money? Should you just buy your 80% lower and figure it out from there? In the case of the 80% Lower Jig Kit, we recommend you consider bundling. Here are X benefits for buying an 80 lower jig kit!

#1: An 80 Lower Jig Kit is more affordable

Building an AR-15 from an 80% lower usually means you’ll save a little cash – after all, you’re not paying some other company to build your rifle. But if you want to maximize cost savings, then an 80% Lower Jig Kit is the only way.

Our 80 Lower Jig Kits include a nice discount on both components: The lower and the jig. That means you’re saving even more by bundling!

#2: 80 Lower Jig Kits are guaranteed to work

Most 80 lowers are compatible with most 80 lower jigs – but that’s not always the case. Plus, you may end up having to scout out the right tooling if you buy your lower and jig separately. Our 80 Lower Jig Kits are guaranteed to work and they include the necessary tooling (drill bits, set screws, and end mill bits) so you can get to building as soon as you receive yours.

#3: 80 Lower Jig Kits include video tutorials and instructions

Machining an 80 lower is relatively simple – but you’re still putting tooling to metal. There are also precise measurements that need to be made. Attempting to calculate those measurements yourself can be difficult.

Our 80 Lower Jig Kits include easy-to-follow video tutorials and/or instructions that guide you along every step. Most (if not all) measurements are also pre-calculated for you, so all you need to do is set up your tooling and get to work.

Trust us, unless you’re a seasoned machinist, this is a project best completed with all the guesswork removed.

#4: our 80 Lower Jig Kits are top-of-the-line!

Each 80 Lower included in our Jig Kits is made to exact, factory specifications. Each 80 Lower in our kits is also built exclusively from mil-spec 6061 T6 billet or 7075 T6 forged aluminum – the same stuff you’d buy at the gun store.

What’s more, each of our 80 Lower jigs in each Jig Kit has been tested and proven by our own staff and our customers. Each Jig we throw in each kit is guaranteed to produce perfect results, every time.

#5: You can build any AR with our 80 Lower Jig Kits!

We have 80 Lower Jig Kits available for virtually every AR configuration you could imagine: AR-15 in 5.56/.223 and .300 BLK, DPMS Gen 1 .308, and AR-9! We even offer 80% Frame and Jig Kits for all Glock handgun series, as well as the venerable G.I.-spec 1911 Government and Commander.
