Has Anybody ever ordered and made their own 80% receiver? I am seriously considering this from this website:
How the hell is this Legal?
Well its simple really. You are building the weapon yourself for your own personal use. This is legal under the Gun Control Act of 1968. This is on the ATF’s website under their FAQ page. You can see it here:http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/firearms-technology.html
We are not lawyers always do your own research!
Can I Build one as a gift to my wife or other family member?
No, If you build one and then give it to another person you are distributing it… This would be illegal.
Do I need to put serial numbers on the firearm that I make?
A licensed Manufacturer has an agreement with the government to put serial numbers on the weapons they make. You as a private individual who is making a firearm for personal use and not for sale of distribution have no agreement with the government to serialize your firearm.
It is a good idea to mark your weapon somehow so that should it ever be stolen you have a way to identify it and report its loss to your local law enforcement.
Please check your local and state law.
