  • Removable probe lead
  • Backwards compatible with AR-15, AR-.308, 1911, Polymer80 frames and receivers
  • User-removable outside enclosure
  • All motors now inside the enclosure
  • Better chip guards reduce chip accumulation into bearings
  • Emergency Stop button
  • Carrying Handles
  • Optical limit switches
  • Improved electronics for increased probe trip and accuracy

When they get to the point where they have the tooling and programming that will get me from a chunk of bar stock to a finished lower I think I’ll find the cash to buy one. I think it’s just a really cool toy at this point that is still reliant on the availability of 80% lowers.


The chick is probably one of the top dog’s wife or girlfriend LOL. I’m moving from PRNJ to PA on Jan. This might have to get purchased as a move-in gift to myself. ALthough I know nothing about CNC…


I have not one problem with taking directions from the director! DD3… Please be my boss!


God! I love it. Just another way to make the anti everything crowd get all apoplectic. One could probably pay this machine off with small rental fees to all your interested friends. No need to gouge anyone.

If the girl goes with it … I’ll take two! I wonder if they would take a check?

I’d take two also but my wife would be pissed. And I’m not talking about the GG3.

That said I’m left scratching my butt wondering why the girl at all? If she were loading the GG3 and doing all the setup etc ok but just interspersed into the GG3 video is beyond me. I’d rather separate videos in order to get a more in depth assessment of both. 🙂


Sex sells – just ask Dillon Precision

I do love the Blue Press when it arrives. 🙂

@AH, Yes, good for the eyes. I have bought more stuff that I had to rationalize …


Lovely… this is f*cking great! These devices are nothing short of amazing! The things you could do for yourself, your immediate 2A community and more.
A machine here to spread the 2A with a smile and the addiction of sex.

I’m taking donations to assist in buying one or more!? : ))))))

@White, Yep, I’ve spent many a cold damp night outdoors, with nothing between me and the ground, but … a skinny native girl! ;-0

@WB: They might have a problem with taking a check but the ‘hooker money’ is you. : )
