    thats what Id like to know.
    for that price youd be better of just buying a reciever through an FFL and if you want sell it later on.

    I would think it would be a huge amount of work , it would be much cheaper and less labor intensive to find one of the group industries stampings and work from there , century had a bunch of them for sale eailer this year . I have one I will sell you for $165 if interested

    yes they have to ship to an ffl , and there is a lot less work to do than finishing one of the phil ord dummy rec. The phil ord requires a milling machine , mill vice , fixture to hold it verticaly so you can drill and ream the bbl socket a variety of diff endmills and at least 30 hours spindle time if your doing the work manualy . That doesnt even begin to touch on how youll machine the feed ramp .

    Here is a pic of one of the stampings

    I also have a PhilOrd 80% receiver that I am in the process of building the problems I fore see is how to mill the back end and leave the top portion for the sights to set on unless I weld it back and that is the reason to own one of these so you dont have welds also the topcover latch is going to create simular problems any sugestions are appreciated

    How exactly do you stamp out the front part where the grip frame goes in?
    I know that is one of the things that must be done,
    and I have no idea how.
    I guess a set of dies?

    I have one of the stamped 80%'er left. (Pictured above.)
    built a few if them up. almost done with the mini build. Just have to get a back plate and mini stock. they are not hard to build up just takes time.
    and finding the parts. No special skills or tools are needed.
    You will need a welder small mig. works best.

    later

    I'd really love to see a step by step log of someone that has finished an 80% uzi receiver. Has anyone here done it?

    Go to the library here it has a thread on building a mini Uzi, the steps are basicly the same but no need to cut the receiver down.

    I posted this before and this will help you with finishing the Group Industries receivers. It does not cover everything for the 80% receiver but is for the ready to weld receivers.
