You know I'm not sure you couldn't produce your frame kits in "pre-welded" form sans pin holes and still easily meet the ATF requirement they require 20% or more to complete.
Only adaptation required would be to create a drill template - ideally with an index point for alignment.
If the user has to drill the holes, do all the grinding to fit the slide - the locking block, etc, plus either finish out a "1" spec frame, or do the work to seat a "3" series inside polymer, they're easily doing most of the work. This would undoubtedly increase interest just as is the case with 80% AR and 1911 frames/receivers because the most daunting part that requires a fair degree of skill an investment in welding equipment come already done.
Just a thought and my .34 cents worth cause this system and method of building is the only way to acquire a Glock!
I'm going to pm you about another idea you may or may not be interested in R&Ding.
What type of gear you got?This.
I already have all the welding tools but I suck at welding because I don't have a lot of experience.
I was over at weapons guild and went to the thread concerning this build.
i have thought about this several times over the years. Figured posting would get this going again.
