Ok I work at a CNC machine shop and was thinking of purchasing some DSA arms 0% forgings and machining some lowers out of them. I have also thought of making my own billet lowers....

Now my questions are.

#1. Can I legally do either of these without having any kind of permits?
#2. May I put any serial # I please on them, or do I need to contact the BATF and get serial #'s issued.
#3. I know that I can't sell these lower, but may I give them away? (I seriously mean give them away no money under the table or anything. I would like to give my father and my friend one....If not ohh well they can purchase their own :p)
#4. Any other legal issues I should know before I start doing this?

Yes you may make your own receivers. As long as you can legally possess firearms, you are fine. However you may not sell any receivers nor firearms you've made yourself (without getting into FFL issues), and you may only pass them on to your son and/or daughter. You may not make them for anybody else. There are also 80% complete forging and castings available. Google tanneryshop and nat'l ordnance co. Also check out the BIY board under AR-15.

ETA:BATF&E recommends you put an identifying number or mark, "in case" they get lost/stolen, but there is no requirement to put a serial number nor let the agency know.

Thanks this is what I thought, but I wanted to make sure the same thing applied in NC. I will have no problem making one from a cheaper priced 0%, and after I do that I will probally make some billet ones.

They require no special permits either in NC or Federally.
