So I used the 80% arms .308 easy jig and a lower from them. I have some major issues with this jig and the lower is OK. 1. The plate for the trigger pocket is angled slightly off. I put everything together and then put the plate on the jig with the lower. I use a scribe and scribe in the area to be hoged out. Well when I took the plate off it was visibly off. So when I took the micromiter to it, it was off by a few thousandths. Normally that is fine. But when the pocket is angled that is not good. I use a mill so I am able to square everything up and it doesn't really matter. I just need a ruff idea of there to go then I hone it in with a micrometer. For those of you intending to use it as intended with the router it means your pocket it going to be off at an angle and not centered and squar. Also the jig makes to go a little to close to the detent pin and spring that hold the safety in. So just be aware of that. 2. When it comes to doing the trigger hole. The plate has to be taken off and fliped around to use it. The screws that come with it don't really go in like they should for something of this price. The plate I was only able to get 2 of the 4 screws in at any given time. If you don't realize that the plate has to be fliped 180 you will mill out the trigger hole in the wrong spot. 3. Milling out the rear pocket for the upper. My main issues was that the whole thing has to be disassembled in to do the rear pocket. So after it is all squared up on the mill and clamped down. And the mail pocket is done. When I go to move onto the rear pocket I have to undue the clamp and lose my squaring just to disassemble the jig to take out a collet and screw. Then reassemble it squar it back up then I can do the rear pocket. 4. The metal that is used is odd. There are some hard spots like it has been tempered and then there are other super soft spots of aluminum in the lower
