If I(non FFL) build up an AR15 from a stripped receiver and sell it, is an excise tax due and why or why not? Been looking everywhere and can't find an answer.

As long as you aren't building them with the sole intent of selling them later (which would constitute manufacturing), no exise tax is required.

I have a couple friends who want me to build them AR's, I am going to have them buy the stripped lower then put it together it for them. I won't be making any money so no problem. If you are building and selling them and making a profit I think you legally need an FFL. I have nothing official to back this up but it seems to be what I have read before around here.
