Test fired 2nd AR-15

Stopped by the local gun shop yesterday, they had 24 AR-15 stripped lowers
for $150 total, including taxes, so I bought one. Picked it up today after
my waiting period, put enough parts in to get it ready to fire. I used the
same upper I used on my DIY lower. Fired fine, no issues.
A friend was telling me about a guy they shot with that could stiff arm a
semi-auto and pull the gun against his finger and bump fire but without a
bump fire stock. So I tried it, after a few failed attempts I got it to
double, then I got a 3 round burst. Sounds like a machine gun and I can hit
the ground with every shot! :-) I don't think it would be a good way to
hit anything, may be useful for gardening, I can plant seeds in the holes I
shot in the ground.
After I torque the barrel on the M-16 upper it will be ready to test fire.
The 4 raw forgings I ordered in early February finally came in today. I
figure I'll try to machine them with my CNC mill to the 80% point so I can
sell if I want or finish the trigger pocket in the CNC when I decide to. I
wanting to build a 30 cal for the 300blk cartridge, that will probably be my
3rd upper but I hear ammo is hard to get for the 300blk. Maybe I can get
some dies to neck out 223 to 300blk and load my own.

I know what you mean, since Obama it seems everybody now has multiple assault rifles. Obama is the greatest gun salesman ever and the worst president ever.

No, you don't. You're a rabid gun-crazed lunatic. You don't know what anyone means, ever.

Now build yourself an AR pistol, and build your own short pistol buffer assembly on the lathe :)

Aren't those a BIG bag of worms?

A pistol? Nope, no bag of worms at all as long as you don't put a shoulder stock on them. If you're building your own custom short pistol buffer that makes it pretty clear a standard shoulder stock isn't going on it. No vertical grips on the front either, so ideally use a style of handguard that doesn't lend itself to that, like a basic round one vs. a quad rail.

Not a bag of worms but certainly a flame thrower.
Careful not to cross the alphabet boys here. You can't convert a rifle into a pistol. You have to start with areceiver that was never on a rifle. Don't know if the rule is activiely enforced, but it is there.
FWIW, I think the AK makes a better pistol, no large buffer tube sticking back. real cheap build too.

Built from a forging, short pistol buffer, no way to readily attach a conventional shoulder stock, no way to readily attach an off the shelf front vertical grip. Also pretty clearly built as a unit given the unique color.

That would be neat if it's legal in Illinois.
I just got a UPS shipping notice today, the first AR parts kit I ordered, from early February, will be shipping out, should have my 3rd parts kit, less stripped lower, either tomorrow or Monday. Tuesday I'm supposed to pick up my 3rd lower. So there's 3 people that live in my house, 3 AR-15's and enough magazines to have 100 rounds each! I think I need more magazines!
Next, a 300 AAC blackout upper, ammo is difficult to find but I see you can chop 223 cases to 1.375", run through a sizing die, trim to final length of 1.368" and you're ready to reload!
Then a pistol if it's all legal here.

Check carefully at state and local levels. The sticky in the AR pistol forum on AR15.com seems to indicate IL is ok at the state level but local restrictions in the cesspool of Chicago / Cook County.

They WOULD be fairly easy to build dies and stamp out the parts for. How many k should I make per run?

Fortunately I live around 300 miles away from Chicago! I'm just about a hour away from East St Louis, another good example of Illinois fine cities.

BTDT. The laser malfunctioned at my son's job and a huge pile of flats fell out. I bought the bending die from AKbuilder.com
if you're serous, I have the .dxf of the flat.

Do your AK pistols come with a lug to attach a BBQ brush? :)

No, but his brushes come with receivers for AK "handles", Pete. His US company has always outgunned the Chiwanese brushmakers.

The Chiwanesse know a thing or two about AKs too...
