5D Tactical – Using the Router Jig Pro

Our 5D Tactical video will show you what comes with the 5D Tactical Multiplatform jig and how to use it.


We have an article that we put the 80 Percent Arms Jig against the 5D Tactical Jig. Visit that article at https://trb.fyi/ar-jig-shootout-5d-tactical-vs-80-percent-arms

The lowest advertised price that we found on the Internet is from JSD Supply. Check out the jig here https://bit.ly/373D8aL

There are several tools we used in the 5D Tactical video. Below is the list of tools and the links to purchase them. 

When purchasing tools, I try to buy them from Brownells since they have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. I have broken roll pin punches that Brownells has replaced with no questions asked. 

I purchased my Jig from JSD Supply. They have the lowest advertised price for the jig that I have found.
