Our VDD80 Lower Receiver in 80% completed form, to be finished by the end user. The VDD80 is precision CNC-machined from billet 6061 aluminum at our facility. Billet receivers provide a significantly higher level of quality due to the stability of the raw material. Forged lowers are ideally suited to inexpensively producing products in high volume, but the drawback is poor aesthetic consistency, unpredictable fit/finish and material instability - Say it with us: Billet is better.

  • T6 Heat-Treated 6061 Billet Aluminum - Raw finish (As machined)
  • Flared magwell to improve mag changes
  • Billet quality in a simplified form factor
  • Proprietary magazine geometry eliminates poor quality broaching
  • Fully CNC machined from aerospace material
  • 100% USA Made

Our goal is to produce a quality product at an affordable price. Machining marks are perfectly acceptable and agreed to with the purchase of this product. 

Because 80% Lowers are not considered firearms by ATF, we can ship them right to your front door with no FFL required. Finished rifles must meet all applicable laws and you must be able to legally own a firearm. Compliance with all federal and local laws is YOUR responsibility.

We ARE NOT able to ship this product to anyone residing in the states of Rhode Island or New Jersey. New York sales cease Dec 31, 2021, or sooner if lead times exceed new law enactment date.

Please note - while many of our customers enjoy the look and simplicity of the "as machined" aluminum, this finish is intended to be completed by the end user; therefore, machining marks will be visible.

Required machining to complete an 80% lower includes: Selector hole, Trigger pin hole, Hammer pin hole, Take-down lug slot, Fire control group pocket, Trigger slot


Increased material and supply costs have forced our hand in the raising of prices. We strive to keep our products affordable for all customers while maintaining our business efforts in keeping products in the US with US suppliers.

    Very awesome company to deal with. The few I purchased were very high quality and worked great. Up until the boating accident.

    Ar Lower

    Posted by Marshal stewart on Jun 19th 2021

    I have had just about all the sellers out there product's. This ranks with all the Top dogs. Noreen, D5, Joebobs . etc.. My opinion Venom and Noreen are the Best. , but noreen is 3 times the money.. Most are forged and is not no wear as strong as billet.

    not happy with the second order

    Posted by Isaac on Jun 4th 2021

    not happy with the second order, ordered two more of these look like I received blemished ones not well done ones. scratches and milling depths milled to deep at some points along with unfinished edging.

    VDD response: We immediately offered exchange; customer has no reply.

    Great quality

    Posted by Brandon Dale Tysinger on May 28th 2021

    The mag well on all my lowers had to be sanded or filed due to a lip in the broaching process. Like you started then stopped and then restarted broaching again. Can send you pics of you like . But you can feel the lip in the mag well.

    Lower 80%

    Posted by Brett on May 17th 2021

    So this is number 6 and just really injoy these lowers well make you do however have to be extremely careful about installing the bolt catch roll pin as the aluminum is extremely thin in that area but just go slow and you won't have any trouble
