    Just out of curiousity, I know that in WA, you must wait several dys to buy a hangun if you dont have a concealed carry license. However, you can walk out the same day with a rifle purchase. What about stripped AR15 lowers? Is there a waiting period on those up there? Im just wondering how far that waiting period extends for you guys up there.

    Thanks.

    Long gun lower = no wait.

    Not sure if marked as a pistol lower. Probably standard (and idiotic) waiting period.

    No wait if you have a cwp. and the lower I bought for my build wasn't marked pistol or rifle. but since I live in Oregon now I don't know what the answer to that would be

    I just bought a stripped lower a couple weeks back. I am over 21 and have a CPL but I did not show my CPL at time of purchase. There was no wait, and it says long gun on the form.

    The one you bought "says long gun", you purchased a rifle/long gun, so there is no wait.

    If it was sold as a handgun or receiver you would then have to follow the rules for handguns...

    Does a pistol lower actually have the engraved into the lower? How would one know if its a rifle or pistol frame?

    Some lowers say "Pistol" on them

    Most lowers ship as AR15 receivers and then become a rifle or a pistol on the form 4473 when you check the box...if the 4473 is checked as a receiver it can be built as either a rifle or pistol....(but it can not go back and forth)

    Not being an FFL I do not know if they have to enter them into inventory as rifle/pistol/receiver, I assume as a receiver.

    Yes it was!!! Looks like your FFL missed the memo that was sent to all FFL's last year! (link on bottom of Post #5)
