    a bunch of people gather at someone's house who has the necessary tooling to bend flats and do the rest of the build work, they all bring their kits and their flats and get to work.

    this will be my first one so i'll take a lot of pics :cool:

    Do 40 round mags feed reliably? I think I read somewhere that they do not.

    Mine all feed fine, as long as they're not commercial mag's you shouldn't have a problem.

    So what's your rough build cost with kit, compliance parts, and flats?

    i got in on a couple group buys so i got 3 flats for 10 bucks a pop and a kit for 99. they were doing another gb and i was gonna get 2 more kits but the company sold out. the cheapest kits ive found outside of that are from copes @ 140 a pop.

    then 40 bucks for compliance parts x 2. one of the flats and kits im building into a pistol so i don't need that

    one of the guys bought a shit ton of rivets an center supports so a few bucks is going to that.

    so essentially i'll have 130 in the pistol & 190 in one of the rifles and 230 in another (side folder on that one)
