80% lowers are just under $200, but I have no idea what unmachined forgings are worth. He basically lit the way for you two build two AR's though.

I've seen forging blanks for around 25-35 bucks, not many people are interested do to the amount of machining required. Manly the magwell because you either need the broach or a wire edm to do them properly.

You should be able to do it with a sinking edm unless there is something really strange inside that magwell. you can pick them up or build them pretty cheap.

Yes finishing them would be nice, but I do not have EMD or a way to broach, Only milling I can do is on a taig lathe. Really only 25 to 35. for the castings. I just have to consider what to do! keep the info coming! May be ill tackle the project head on .

I've read about guys rough milling the mag well and getting the corners with the smallest mill they've got, then filing the edges to fit the mags. With the right determination, anythings possible. Just depends on how much you want to put into them.
