Thumbs up My 1st 80% Lower finished using a 5D Tactical jig



Advertise Here

Finally finished my 1st 80% Lower using a Daytona Tactical 80% in the white lower & a 5D Tactical Router Jig PRO. Other than my screw up that resulted in a ruined end mill, it went fairly well, but most importantly the lower turned out good.

Would you mind posting that all in one video, so we don't have to download ten vids? I'd kinda like to have that one saved.

As I mention here https://youtu.be/eVlW0I96Kr8?t=972 I put the cutting fluid in a spray bottle to be able to reach the end mill better while still milling. Originally I was using both the fluid and WD 40, but as the original can the fluid came in wasn't easy to squirt it into the pocket & get it on the end mill, the WD40 is in a pressurized can & got in there much better, so that's why I switched the cutting fluid to a spray bottle so I could spray it in there better. In the future I will get a better squirt bottle and/or hopefully get a nozzle like the WD-40 can has.

Can I spend a day or so re-editing, then upload a roughly hour & a half long video that will take about 4-6 hours to upload so it's more convenient for you? Yeah, I'll get right on that.

The fit and finish of the 5D jig is like a fine instrument. Follow the directions, take your time and they come out extremely well done.

If you are going to build an AR10, I suggest you just by their matching upper and 80% lower at the same time to prevent headaches later. That's from first hand experience.

Already did. They have a deal where if you post videos of you using the jig & what not, you can get a discount up to 50%. I got the 50% off, to a maximum dollar amount of $125 off. So I got an 80% Glock frame, jig & tools, along with a matching LPK, the AR-10/308 adapter, also picked up an extra endmill bit, which I will swap into the endmill I ruined, cause ya know the old 2 is 1 & 1 is none type deal. So that was about $340 of stuff, for just over $200 which meant I also got free shipping. Hopefully I'll be able to post a video of making the Glock too.

Is there a link or something for that, or how do you go about getting the 50percent off?

This is the 5D tactical discount page, but you might want to look at modulus arms, identical jig, lower price & they are also offering the same discount program as 5D.

Thanks for this. I have a couple unfinished 80% lowers stowed away but haven't gotten a jig yet. It seems the better ones are expensive!

Well the only one I can tell you about from actual 1st hand experience is the 5D tactical router jig pro. I did a boat load of research at the time & there were a few others I had make the final cut. At the time I ordered, the modulus arms didn't have a clone of the 5D jig or I would have went with that. The jig is easy to assemble, as well as use. The gradual milling out of the pocket is tedious for someone like me who doesn't have an excess amount of patience. Even with that, I was able to muddle my way to a complete lower. I've got a billet one I ordered from modulus for well under $40. Now with the AR-10 conversion kit, I just need to find a lower I want & start on that. I have noticed the stuff for AR-10's is MUCH more expensive & due to the lack of a single mil-spec standard, you have to make sure you are getting the right parts to work in whichever lower you have. The 5D jig is for the DPMS style lowers.

Thanks! I wasn't aware of the Modulus Arms jig.


Do you know of any 80% lowers that have the upper/lower tension screw hole, I like the option to get rid of upper/lower play IF there is any.
