I have a question. If I am not mistaken, the "pre-ban" receivers on the market today are physically different than the post ban receivers. When (not if in my books) the AWB expires, will they switch back to making the "pre-ban" style receevers? I am looking into getting a receiver when the ban expires, and an curious if I should wait until companies start producing the "pre ban" style receivers. Also, I am considering finishing an 80% receiver. Since these are not registered, how would I make sure if I made one that its date of manufacture is verifiable, so that if there is another ban there is not a question as to when I made it? Thanks for your help.

There is absolutely NO physical difference between pre and post ban receivers.
Lower or upper.

Unless you are referring to the sear blocked Colts which changed not because of the "AWB".

I know of no difference, physical or visual to receivers. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I don't think so.

Thanks, that is what I needed to know. Anyone know about the 80% question?

I believe they are not finished, and u need to cut some holes in them, and they cost more than a striped lower, i dont think they have serials on them. i you buy one and make into a firearms, and dont register it, you may lose you ownership privileges.

Complete, absolute, unaldulterated bullshit. Its perfectly legal to machine your own receiver, no serial number or ridiculous registration required. Please don't spread bullshit.

Depends how many holes you drill in it to 'finish' it.

Too many and you will certainly go to pound-you-in-the-ass prison if the ATF finds out.

Wow. I had no idea we were free to manufacture firearms in the U.S. without a license. That simple, huh? How about that?



We are free to build them for personal use, just don't make the mistake of ever trying to sell one.

More wive's tales. You can sell one if you want/need to. You just aren't supposed to manufacture with intent to sell... its for personal use as indicated above.

Dude, see ../BuildItYourself.

A lot of what goes on there is home machinists making AR15s, AR10s, 1911, Aks, etc.

The big question for me is how to make sure that if I make my own receiver, that I have a way to verify when it was made, so it has the correct pre-ban/post-ban status. Any ideas?

... Was not meaning to come across as a smart-alec, just to emphasize that that was the ONLY feature making the difference from legality and a criminal record
