80 PERCENT LOWER FAQ'S
|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS|
What is an 80% receiver?
An 80% receiver is a partially completed piece of material that requires special tooling and skills to be completed to be considered a firearm. Unlike a firearm receiver, an 80% receiver is not required to be transferred through a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) holder.
Why is an 80% receiver not a firearm?
A lot of questions have been raised about how 80% AR-15 lower receivers can be considered non-firearms. We have a determination letter from the ATF stating that the ATF does not view our product as a firearm as long as the trigger well has not been completed. We have included a copy of the ATF letter with our product so our customers have the peace of mind that they are following ATF guidelines.
Do I need an FFL to make a firearm?
No. As long as you can legally own the firearm in the state, county and city you reside in then you are allowed to manufacture a firearm for your own personal use. No serial number is required, however, it is suggested that a serial number, model and manufacturer be engraved on your AR-15 receiver in case it is lost or stolen.
How do I know the regulations where I live?
It is the customer’s responsibility to check with all local agencies to determine they are allowed to possess an AR-15. Check with your local law enforcement agency for information.
