    I remember seeing somewhere online an AR-15 kit where the lower reciever is made of sheet metal and bolts together. It is similar to the 80% kits, but the reciever is not a solid cast piece.

    Does anyone know where I can find this?

    That is the 80% receiver that someone affiliated with JPFO was doing. If I recall correctly, they got raided by ATF for "illegally" building firearms.

    I'm certain that it is still in the courts, and I frankly think that the case will be found to have no merit.

    But ATF DID go after them.


    What I don't get is how no one bats an eye at AK build parties, but they went after this. I think the question was whether they were truly 80% of if 90% or so of the work was already done.

    If I recall correctly, Shotgun News did an article on them a year or so ago.

    The same thing happened to a company here in Montana.
