I'm sorry if this subject has been hashed over but, I want to know for sure if buying a 80% finished receiver casting without a FFL is legal? It seams almost to good to be true that a small amount of cash and some GOOD machining on my part is all that is needed to get a receiver and build a rifle around it( in my case, a 10/22 target rifle ). Am I missing something or what? I would hate to see some guys on my doorstep asking me to spend a few YEARS in their "hotel". Any info on this mater would help. Thanks

there's nothing wrong with his question at all... yes, it is legal for you to build your own firearm (state/local laws may vary). You can build it from scratch or from a partially completed receiver which, if under 80%, isn't considered a firearm.

[url]www.tanneryshop.com[/url] for 80% castings, including 10/22. Yes, it's legal federally. State laws may not allow it. You may not create an "assault weapon" and you may not make a firearm "with intent to sell" it. Which doesn't mean you can't change your mind later.

wrong, and wrong. No SN needed, though ATF suggests one be put on for identification purposes in case of theft, etc. No paperwork needs to be filed.
