    I am "good to go" but would like to buy a few more stripped lowers just in case. This would be my first time buying a stripped lower (or 5 ha ha) from an FFL, which seems to be my best option at the moment considering the gray market prices. I can get them $85 a piece still online.

    I'm curious to know if buying multiple stripped lowers causes you to be flagged to the ATF or not. If so, maybe best to hold off?

    What? Did you just get approved for that home equity line of credit?

    Shouldn't be any different from buying 5 guns

    where do you find them online for that price?

    after you make your purchase, could you PM me a link?

    thanks

    ...considering a stripped lower IS a gun, I know it's not different than buying 5 guns, since it IS buying 5 guns. But is there a flag when purchasing a certain number at one time?

    as far as I know 2 pistols gets a flag, and 5 rifles gets a flag...

    not sure how they classify lowers though... you may want to talk to your FFL as he has to submit the multiple sales form and he determines that part...

    Brownells list price on Aero's is $85, abit cheaper for dealers... As of right now they are back ordered, but they honor their prices!

    As a gunsmith...I have some ideas to keep putting this particular action into hands if for some reason they actually get a ban, though I dont think they can, but even then I think I make a pretty nice, not "evil", looking hunting type rifle. I've let all of my licensing, as well as dealer accounts go but am thinking about going back to it now that I'm no longer owned by the Army. So I have been searching for an inexpensive lower to tinker with.

    they already have california compliant versions which is what an AWB would be... no pistol grip but a slanted handle flush with the stock where the grip would be...

    Yup, my design is different than that...even with a wood option.

    i would expect that if you ordered 10k full guns to an address way out in the middle of nowhere you might get a knock on the door...
