So i'm contemplating building my own 80% lower AR15. I have a concern though, the FAQ section the ATF website states that it is legal as long as it is "not for sale". So can I never sell/trade/gift it? I undersand they don't want joe schmo manufacturing 100's of guns a year to sell, but if I make one for myself, then sell it 5 years later is that technically making it "for sale"?

My second concern is the same issue but more in the future. When I die what happens? Do ATF goons get to cut my precious gun into 1,000,000 peices? Or can I leave it in my will?

If anyone has any real answers i'd appericate it. Thanks.h.gif

It's all about intent. If you build it for the purpose of resale, you are manufacturing without a license. If you build it for your own use then later sell it, that's OK. It's the ATF's opinion that if you do sell one, it must be marked with a serial number and other required information when transferred (markings aren't required for homebuilt non-NFA firearms otherwise).
