80 Percent Arms Universal 80% AR-15 Easy Jig
The universal fit Easy Jig™ is a patent pending device that makes machining your 80% lower easier, faster, and safer. Lowers finished with the Easy Jig™ have a better finish and hold tolerances that could not be achieved using any other jig on the market today. You do not need to own a drill press or mill to use the Easy Jig™. It truly makes finishing your lower a monkey simple process. On top of all this, it’s extremely durable and can be reused for dozens of lowers.
The Easy Jig™ is now a universal fit design which fits almost every brand of AR-15 lower.
Easy Jig™ highlights:
Built in drill/end-mill depth gauge for the trigger and rear-shelf pockets (patent pending)
Eliminates the need for expensive measurement tools
Quick verification of depth setting – eliminates slippage issues that can ruin parts
Eliminates constant measuring to determine depth while milling
End-mill downward force can’t separate the drill press taper chuck
It is safer to move router by hand than to move the jig around on a drill press
Uses Common Hand Tools
The Easy Jig™ is designed to hold tolerances using a common hand-drill
No drill press is required, milling is done with a router
Routers are much more portable than a drill press, easily borrowed from a friend
Routers are made for cutting pockets using a template
Routers are cheaper than a drill press (about 75% less expensive).
Pocket drilling requires 10 holes drilled once – Traditional jigs require 42 holes to be drilled once, precisely aligned and clamped, then re-drilled to a larger diameter
Trigger pocket can be cut in 6 to 11 passes vs 25 passes required with a drill press
Router cuts pockets 5-6x faster
Hand-drilling the trigger group/safety selector holes is faster to setup
Lower can be completed in 1 hour (instead of 3 hours for the old drill press method)
The Easy Jig™ can be used to make dozens of lowers
Components are Type III hard anodized for extra wear resistance
