    I haven’t released the trigger boxes yet. I’m still cutting them. The test box I cut today fit pretty well. I’ll be working on them more this weekend. I’m also taking a week off work to get a bunch of lowers built and shipped out too. That will happen in about 2 weeks.

    I cleaned up the file today and will cut another box this weekend. It fit in the semi lower pretty well including the sliding tabs on the sides.

    I’m cleaning up the internals on the 556 lower to lighten it up slightly. While it’s lower than the remdef weight I want a little more. The sides are pretty thick and in places it’s 3-4 times as thick as the upper receiver. Even if i take it down to 2x the upper it will be stronger than stock. The goal is about 8 ounces from 10.2.

    The good is this doesn’t really change the machining time so it’s an incremental upgrade. I have 9 lowers here now that are ready to get the final small steps done to them and they will be ready for cerakote. The trigger boxes are actually pretty quick to machine so that won’t delay me much. I plan on shipping the first few by the first of the year. Sooner if I can get the file done quickly.

    I’m sure you don’t want to hear this now, but for $60 more you could have bought the complete barrel assembly of your choice on Black Friday.

    Regardless, it’s always cheaper to buy a complete barrel and sell off the parts you don’t want.

    I’m finally catching up on life now. The complete barrel tear down is the way to go. You can usually get a complete barrel for 300 dollars or so and tear it down.

    I sell the entire gas system with lock ring assembly for 400 dollars but I recommend the used barrel option.

    Skipjack, I got your pm and will reply once I get to the shop tomorrow morning. I was there for 16 hours today dialing in the 556 lowers.

    I have almost 30 of them pushing through the shop now. The programs are completely dialed in now. The first 9 or so will be finished up tomorrow and the trigger boxes are starting up immediately after the shot show lowers get done.

    I took about 175 pounds of 6061 aluminum and turned it to right over 15 pounds of lowers.

    The new program I was testing took another half ounce of material from the lower while retaining the strength needed for them to be rigid. They weigh in at right over 9 ounces now.

    I posted this on Instagram yesterday. Here’s the official latest word on these.

    I have about 25 lowers done, 4 are at shot show now. (For range days and such). 5 or so are blems from dialing in the manufacturing. Those are going to be sold at a discount depending on what exactly made them a blem.

    They are fully functional, just not perfect. The rest are going out to customers in the order they were paid for.

    Any custom lower will be first on the next batch. I haven’t had time to design or change the program for a new setup whatsoever because of how hard it was to dial in everything. I’m testing a new program for the trigger boxes now to prevent them from pulling out of my vise. That’s taken most of this week to get right.

    A few of these will ship before shot show if I can get them done in time. Most will ship after shot.
