Does anyone knows if it is possible to register just a stripped ar lower as a SBR rifle lower or it needs to be a complete firearm to be recoginze by the AFTE?  I'm planning to build a future SBR project.  Want to get all areas cover before proceeding.

That is what the Form 1 is used for.  The Form 4 is used to transfer a complete gun, the Form 1 is for those converting one.

Thats a great way to do it.  Thats how my second SBR will be done.  Ground up starting with a stripped lower SBR'd.  Just have an idea of how you are going to configure it for description purposes on the form 1, it will ask length and caliber.

Yes a stripped is a great way to go. Alittle advise, 1: get your lower engraved before you do the paper work. One its not a NFA weapon yet, Two if theres a mistake in the engraving you can get a differant lower for your SBR. 2: absolutly under no way, shape, event ,or form should you buy, own, or possess the SBR upper until you have APPROVED paperwork in hand. 3:START SAVING FOR THE NEXT ONE, ONCE YOU HAVE ONE YOU   WILL  WANT MORE

Why not?  I've got my shorty upper and I haven't even started on the paperwork yet.  I even assembled it so I could sight it in and try it out...
I built a bare lower into a pistol.  Now I can play with my short upper before the paperwork goes through.  

I will just have to swap the pistol buffer tube for a buttstock when the paperwork is approved.

If you choose to do what GarrettJ did, make sure the stripped reciever transfers as a pistol on the 4473. If it transfers as a long gun, you can't do what he described without registering it as an SBR first.

The pistol is a ok way to go just make sure its documented that its a registered pistol that has never had a stock on it. Make sure the 4473 says pistol, that the key.
