I posted this message in another thread before I realized it was a 2+ year old thread so I thought I'd post it in it's own thread.

I visited a gun shop a couple days ago looking for AR15 pricing and inquired about getting a stripped lower (my plan is to build my first AR). The dealer said that some law is going into effect next month that limits or eliminates the ability to buy a stripped lower receiver. Is there any basis to this? I've scanned the legal threads here and don't see anything about it (I would expect it in big bold letters somewhere), so did the guy misunderstand my question, is he totally out in left field, or is there something to be concerned about here?

Thanks for any info!

It's a nice way of saying "Buy my rifle, don't assemble one yourself and save $$$".

I'd tell him that he was full of Bullshit! I would also let him know that I would be telling everyone I know about his dishonesty. Be sure you tell him to kiss any of your money goodbye.

Perhaps he was confused about the ATF import restrictions on "repair/replacement" receivers that was originally going to kick in in September, but has been postponed until January.

What will be affected by this import restriction? Who imports AR receivers and would a new receiver fall under this restriction since it isn't technically a repair/replacement?

Thanks to all for the replies.

As fas an an AR goes, the import ban ban doens't effect anything.
