Anyone doing an 80% 10/22 receiver?

I was curious if anyone on this forum is considering doing an 80% 10/22 receiver?

if so, post your reason for building one and post your results with pics.

Tactical Machining makes an 80% receiver as well as a couple others.
Jigs are available too.

Seems to have caught on elsewhere but ............ ?

10/22 80% receivers are partially complete and not an FFL item.

But would need drilling and TLC to complete.

Tactical Machining has these for those who like to do it themselves.

Good company with good customer service. Call Nathan as he is easy to talk with giving the best deal always. Usually has the latest info.

I included a couple pics of mine but they really don't show much.

If you have a drill press or access to one looks like a fun project. Without a drill press looks sorta annoying

Yes. I read on another forum where someone who even had a CNC shop did one with a hand drill in 20 minutes. He didn't recommend this as the results were poor.

I used my mill and dialed in all the holes even though I had the jig. Came out good. Even the barrel hole where others had a tough time offsetting the hole.
I used a couple drill bushings which was responsible for proper placement of the holes.

It has a built in picatinny scope rail that I am using a Nikon #743 with 20MOA built into it for longer range scope adjustment.

Easier to just buy a receiver, but loads of fun to put together your own.

looks expensive too, $120? I think my carbine on sale at sports authority was 209 lol.

it looks like fun tho. IF I replace enough parts maybe I'll get one at some point just to use my spare parts lol

At one time, they had their place but with so many decent aftermarket receivers available now, the 80% ones are kinda moot I think. When these were wanted for 10/22 styled handguns it was a easy route to take. Just not necessary now. Much easier to buy a 100% one and know it'll work rather than chance messing one of these up and being left with a $100 paperweight.
