We guarantee our Gen 1 AR-15 Easy Jig® universal jigs will fit all forged and billet AR-15 lowers except for New Frontier Armory, Iconic Industries, and lowers with Ambidextrous Bolt Release lowers.
Built-in drill/end-mill depth gauge for the trigger and rear-shelf pockets.
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® will hold tight 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 under 1 hour (vs of 3 hours for the old drill press method)
The Gen 1 Easy Jig® can be used to make dozens of lower receivers
Components are Type III hard anodized for extra wear resistance
