80% Lower Included? How to Cut and Drill for Assembly
Each of our rifle kits is designed to work with any "retail" stripped lower receiver -- but that's probably not why you're here. If you opt for a forged or billet 80% lower, completing your receiver blank requires a simple jig with the included drill bits and end mill bits. Completing your 80% lower and transforming it into a stripped lower receiver for the included parts kit requires less than two hours of time, even for first-time builders.Each jig includes the necessary instructions for completing your receiver blank.
Are AR build kits legal?
Yes. Federal law and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms do not recognize any components in these Rifle Build Kits as a firearm. The Gun Control Act of 1968 allows for a private individual to build a firearm at home, from scratch, with no serial number or paperwork required. Keep in mind, this pertains to federal law. Some states have enacted restrictions against Rifle Kits like these, or otherwise recognize such kits to be firearms, contrary to federal law. Be sure to check your local and state laws before purchasing. We cannot fulfill orders to some states. We strongly recommend reviewing our Shipping & Returns policy to ensure your state is not restricted before ordering.
