If one was to own a registered Drop in Auto Sear, Stamp, paperwork and all that crap, could one build a 80% lower around it and be okie dokie with the feds?

How was I to know she was with the Russians, too?

So that sear is the registered part? Can it be placed into other receivers?

I have never seen that before.

Now that is a GI auto sear, not a DROP IN Registered Auto Sear

Good advice on the 80% se#.

These registered auto sears get me confused. (Not talking about RDIAS)

How can an regular autosear be registered, but not the lower receiver when there is the third pin hole on the lower?

they would be "married" in much the same way AK sears are to the host weapon.

I hate to be "Female" about this, but can we get back to the OP topic?

WHat I am hearing is that is it cool to be able to do this.

Any other opinions?

When you do a F1 or F2, the BATFE does not come out and check your work. So it is easy to register a standard Auto Sear. That does not make it a valid registration.

As you point out, the lower is also a MG, whether that is registered or not is not mentioned.

You do not need a DIAS to make a semi-auto firearm.

I know that. I want to make a 80% AR THEN use a RDIAS, and I am trying to find out if it is Okie Dokie.

well, a couple have folks have already told you, so, here it is again:

it's legal to make and use an 80% lower.

it's legal to own and use an RDIAS (state laws apply)

it's legal to put your legally owned DIAS into your legally made 80% lower and use them.

"it's legal to put your legally owned DIAS into your legally made 80% lower and use them."

To be clear, an 80% lower by definition, is not a firearm. An 80% lower that has been completed by you, is a firearm and at a minimum requires a serial #. Your name city and state would be a good idea. As Tony pointed out, that might limit questions of LE. So finish the 80% and have some fun. YMMV.

It is not a firearm per NFA just GCA and requires no markings unless you are licensed to making it (type 7 FFL).

As determined by the Firearms Technology Branch of the ATF, this lower receiver is not classified as a "firearm" as defined by the GCA of 1968.
