Received my frame today. Really like it. As soon as I find some decent instructions will attempt to finish it. Leaning towards mating a G17

Don't mind at all. I am waiting to get more real world feedback before I attempt mine. Plus I have to save up for the rest of the components so won't start milling it for a few months

Harbor freight will get you going in a press and vise for around 250ish. Clip that 20% off cupon from the newspaper.....maybe a bit less. It might not last till your kids have kids but it works for now

Just bought a used G17 slide. Once I have it I'll start the milling process

I just finished milling a AR frame. Be careful!!!! The red plastic jig is too flexible. The end mill can easily push the sides of the jig outward, resulting in sidewalls that are too thin. Brace the sides of the jig by placing flats of ply or one inch lumber alongside the jig when mounting in the vice. And leave a little clearance between the end mill and the side of the jig.

Getting it all setup

I used the same exact vise and it worked well. Don't expect it to be like the video where they do 1 quick pass then throw everything together and it's good lol mine took A LOT of fitting XD

Thanks Walt but this is a glock frame so not milling anything like a trigger pocket. Just taking out some material from the top of the frame where the slide goes on and drilling a few holes mainly and milling out two back rail slots

Finished the frame and was able to fit the slide. Fairly straight forward. My rear slide rails were to shallow and narrow so took my time milling them deeper and wider. Now need to buy a frame parts kit.
