Unlike other firearm parts, it is easy to find 80 lower receivers for sale in bulk. It sounds odd, but the reason it is somewhat common is because it is so beneficial. There is also the simple fact that you can’t stop building at one rifle. I always say building rifles is like eating chips, you can’t just have one. Here are the five biggest benefits to buying lower receivers in bulk.
1. Saves Money
Buying 80 lower receivers in bulk is just like buying something like soda in bulk, it’s cheaper. Simply put, you can save a considerable amount of money by buying 80 percent lowers in bulk groups of 3 to 5. Most people don’t build one rifle. Building AR 15s is fun, and there are tons of different configurations one can invest in. I’m on my fourth build and have built a MIL Spec M4 clone, a superbly lightweight 300 Blackout, and a 9mm AR 15.
If you and a group of friends are all looking to build ARs, you can pool money together, buy in bulk and save some considerable funds. Buying a 5 pack of 80 lower receivers from us saves about 40 dollars total, that’s the price of a mil spec lower parts kit.
2. Great Way to Host a Build Party
Speaking of friends, if you wanted to host a ‘build’ party you can save even more money. The cost of 80 percent lower receivers is one thing, but the cost of tools is another. A build party allows a group of friends or family members to share tools and build their lower receivers together. This reduces the cost due to tools cost, is a fun way to spend an evening, and allows people to potentially take expertise from more experienced builders.
DISCLAIMER: If you are new to the world of DIY AR-15 building, you likely have a lot of questions and rightfully so. It’s an area that has a lot of questions that, without the correct answers, could have some serious implications. We are by no means providing this content on our website to serve as legal advice or legal counsel. We encourage each and every builder to perform their own research around their respective State laws as well as educating themselves on the Federal laws. When performing your own research, please be sure that you are getting your information from a reliable source.
3. Allows You to Have “Back ups”
Finishing an 80 lower receiver isn’t exceptionally difficult. Even an inexperienced builder can finish one. However, people make mistakes all the time. You may drill too deep, misalign trigger holes, or drill into the rear pivot pin detent pocket. Ruining an 80 lower receiver means it's time to start over. Having a few backups laying around in case something does go wrong can be a wise investment.
4. Allows Preparation for Future Laws
Try to buy an AR 15 in California right now. Good luck is all I can say. New laws have taken effect in 2017 to make it even more difficult to own an AR 15 rifle. Having a few 80 percent lowers on hand allows you to store some away and prepare for future laws. 80 lower receivers are not considered firearms and can be legally stored, sold, and given away without being regulated by firearms laws.
5. Makes Great Gifts
Buying in bulk gives people the ability to give some unique gifts. 80 percent lowers as gifts is completely legal. Even in states where a transfer of a firearm must go through an FFL, including gifts, an 80 percent is not considered a firearm. As long as it has not been milled into a 100% lower you can give them away. You can even mail them, or bring them across state lines legally. The added bonus is getting everyone in the family an 80 percent lower means you can have a family build party.
