What is it about making something familiar in a very small scale that makes it so cool?

I don’t know, but these AR-15 mini lowers made by Kent Durree and buddies are just that size-is-everything factor:

These mini-lowers are 80% complete “paper weights”…

Compared to the full-sized article you can see how small they are…

With CNC, may as well make some for friends…

Put one on your keychain and wait for the inevitable questions the next time you open a beer in a crowded place…

A hat tip to the excellent Firearm Blog where I first saw these.  Kent Durree, if you see this article, drop me an email.  I’d love to make your acquaintance and would happily send you copies of my software in exchange for a CAD model of this cool part.  Be sure to click through for more pictures of miniature firearms in that blog post’s comments!
