Can a stripped lower receiver be shipped to my house in FL?

I'm going to attempt to assemble my first AR-15 Carbine. I've found all the parts for it, with the exception of knowing whether or not a stripped receiver can be shipped to my house or if it would have to be shipped to a FFL. There's been no definite answer around the internet, I've looked.

The lower has to go to an FFL, and you have to fill out a 4473 to get it.

Not necessarily, OP didnt specify that the lower would be from a dealer or out of state. If I have a stripped lower in Florida. I can very well ship to the OP without going thru an FFL.

To the OP, we need more details as to where the lower is coming from. If its coming from a dealer instate or out, it has to go thru FFL, if its instate and coming from individual, it does NOT have to go thru FFL.

Unless you're a florida resident and find another florida resident, not an FFL, to do a private sale. And then ship through UPS or Fedex.

To the first couple posts.....WRONG...........as per the BATF website under FAQ......if you are buying from an individual who resides in the same state, a firearm or lower can be shipped directly to you...a FFL is not necessary.

Unless it is a regulated firearm, then it STILL has to go thru an FFL.

Think about it, is it really that important that you would risk going to jail and losing your
gun rights forever to get a lower?????

You should take the time to educate yourself rather than argue.

It is absolutely legal for someone THAT RESIDES IN THE SAME STATE to sell it to him and ship it right to his house.

Go to BATFE website and read up.

Its very simple if your not 21 stop reading now..... if you are.

If you are buying from an individual that resides in FL that person can ship directly to you... if you are buying from any dealer or an individual out of state it has to be shipped to a FFL.

The only thing definitive in this thread is the misinformation.

Nothing in the law requires him to be 21 to buy/own a stripped lower.

The only restriction is an FFL cannot sell it to him, thus leaving many legal ways to obtain.

I understand. But it can be witnessed here that there was a bit of confusion amongst individuals. That is what I meant.

I appreciate everyone's input, and I will most likely just go to a Gun show and see if they have everything i need there.

OMG people, stop giving false information!

OP, from where/whom are you trying to buy the lower? An out of state dealer, in state dealer, out of state individual, or in state individual?

Basically, I'm trying to buy a lower from wherever I can get it, preferably in Florida so I don't have to go through a FFL. I'm legally allowed to own it, no felonies, old enough, etc. And from what I've learned, buying it in-state from an individual is a lot less of a hassle. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who's selling a lower receiver in-state. I thought about buying it from this website: http://www.impactguns.com/store/892756002687.html

But that site doesn't give details as to whether it needs to be shipped to a FFL or not, which is why it's kind of sketchy. So maybe stopping by a gunshow isn't such a bad idea. But it would be really convenient just to have it delivered to my home.

What all details do you need? Try not to seem too angry, there's a first time for everything, and this is mine.

P.S. I have yet to find one official government website for Florida that states the laws about ownership and transfer of the specific parts that this kind of gun is comprised of. I've been looking and so has a friend, with no luck other than whats been stated on forums.

That company is located in Utah, so they would have to ship to a FFL. In fact, being a dealer, they would
have to ship to a FFL even if they were located in your state.

If you click on "how to order" you will see this:

We will not ship firearms directly to you. They will be sent to your local FFL (Federal Firearms License) Dealer, who will then perform any background checks and paperwork required in your state/locality. We do not ship firearms to non-FFL holders. This is federal law. It is your responsibility to contact the FFL Dealer to make sure of their policies, procedures, and any applicable fees they might charge.

In this context a lower is considered a firearm.

It says in the 'contact us' info they only ship to FFL for guns, which the stripped lower is considered, in some fashion, a gun as it has the serial number on it.

http://www.impactguns.com/store/contact_impact.html

Now, you could contact them and see if there is an FFL dealer near your home or place of work that would be convenient for you to stop by within a few days of them receiving it to do the paperwork. They will charge a fee, usually, some more than others.

That's what I'm trying to avoid. I've already sent them a message asking about it, but they won't reply until tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who's selling a lower receiver in-state. I thought about buying it from this website: http://www.impactguns.com/store/892756002687.html Yes it needs to go through an FFL. Basically, any business selling serial numbered receivers/guns is (r legally should be) an FFL holder and therefore must ship to an FFL holder in your state of legal residence. If the FFL is in-state then you simply go to their store and buy it from them.

But that site doesn't give details as to whether it needs to be shipped to a FFL or not, which is why it's kind of sketchy. So maybe stopping by a gunshow isn't such a bad idea. But it would be really convenient just to have it delivered to my home. Frankly, I try to avoid gunshows because there are rarely better deals than I can find online and aren't the greatest source of info.

What all details do you need? Try not to seem too angry, there's a first time for everything, and this is mine. Sorry if we sound angry, I think most of us are more frustrated with the false info that was posted, some of which was due to not knowing where you wanted to buy your lower.

P.S. I have yet to find one official government website for Florida that states the laws about ownership and transfer of the specific parts that this kind of gun is comprised of. I've been looking and so has a friend, with no luck other than whats been stated on forums. It's not a Florida thing in this case, it's a federal thing. Typically, the part with the serial number is the receiver and what the ATF considers the actual firearm; In the case of ARs it's the lower receiver.

Why are you trying to avoid going through an FFL? Just walk in, fill the gun registration harmless form out, and walk out with it. Otherwise, find a private FL resident to deal with. Check local classified ads.

So you would recommend getting in contact with an FFL and talk to them about getting the lower receiver since I can find a better deal online?

Do you know where you would order a lower receiver from? Obviously online, but is there any recommended sites, or ones I should stay away from?

And yes, much clearer, thanks.

And I'm avoiding it because I hate paying for background checks... And a long drive. I'm lazy sometimes, okay?
