You can get a CNC for less.

The machine used in those videos is almost $20K whereas I could pick up a CNC capable of making lowers for under $10K or if you want to go DIY around $3K.

We've just finished our first AR15 lower from billet at my buddy's CNC shop. There are a few sites where you can download the 3D models and from there generating g-code is the only hurdle.

With bootlegged copy of Mastercam and a good post it isn't even a hurdle...
