80% Lower registration
« on: March 18, 2017, 02:55:40 AM »

Was reading the AWB FAQ and had a question. If I get a Certificate of Possession, can I build an 80% lower? It then counts as a post-ban I assume.

The time for registering firearms was before Jan 1 2014. Unless for some reason, before this date, you went and registered a block of metal as a firearm, then the time has passed. The only way to register a firearm now would be if you have a pre-ban and wanted to make it into a SBR or SBS.

You can only register new AWs if you are separating from the military.

80% lowers are legal to machine and do not need a registration if you make it into a rimfire. Just pay attention to the number of features.

The window has shut on making centerfire 80% lowers unless you are .mil.

Or machine it so it isn't a detachable magazine rifle, or isn't a semiautomatic rifle.
