    Been a thing for a long time. Never heard of the term 80% lower?

    Yep I knew about the 80% lowers what I had never seen before was a CNC DIY milling machine, computer controlled to finish one for you. ie the claims were that a 3D printer can allow idiots to make guns....this baby does a better job in a more durable material...oh and its $1500US...

    Making a blowback subgun seems cheeper and easier if you really wanted to build an illegal gun. All this stuff seems mostly the realm of gun geeks

    Yeah plenty of black market functioning sub guns have been made in Australia, you don't need a CNC machine to make one of those. However it is only time before the CNC mill makes the whole lower/upper.

    Yep, its the ease of it with a durable material that is a step change in the game that 3d printers just didnt do, which is what "interested" me. Just wondering what the anti-gun brigade will make of it.

    Control Ammo!!!!

    They will be a bit F$$$$$ really.

    To make a good firearm you need a good barrel. Not something a CNC mill can do (Yet). But for a Criminal i guess they don't care.

    Cool, $1500USD sounds cheap! I don't want a ghost gun...I can just buy a proper E cat AR15 if I need one (which I don't). But the cnc mill really does interest me for general hobby engineering work.

    You can build them pretty cheap if you want to, my mate did a conversion on his mill for a bit under $600. Its fine for aluminum but you have to slow them right down for steel

    He got all his parts from aliexpress I believe. It Chinese but the quality is still fine. Could have been done cheaper but he wanted big enough motors so that you could direct drive it, in the end he geared it down to increase the accuracy. The next step would be to upgrade to ball screws to remove the backlash or get a bigger mill.
