80% Lower FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about the 80% Lower Receiver

How do I order an 80% lower receiver?

The ordering process is simple. Choose your 80% lower from the menu and follow the steps to our secure, online checkout. Our customer service team is available for questions, and they can be reached on our Contact page.

Does the ATF know about 80% lower receivers?

Yes. However, an 80% lower receiver is NOT a firearm and, therefore, does not require the necessary paperwork or regulations that firearms undergo. 

Can 80% lower receivers be traced?

Due to custom-made builds using an 80% lower having no serialization or paperwork, it is typically impossible to determine the firearms origin or history. 

What is an FFL? 

An FFL is a Federal Firearms License. It is a required document for the transfer or sale of a FIREARM in the United States. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) grants FFL licenses.

Is an FFL required when I purchase my 80% lower?

No. An 80% lower receiver (which is the ONLY type of lower receiver we sell) is NOT a firearm so an FFL is NOT required to buy or sell. 

Where can I find more information regarding my state laws and 80% lower receivers?

The NRA website is a great resource for citizens to familiarize themselves with their states laws regarding firearms. 

New Jersey’s attorney general recently demanded that companies stop marketing and selling untraceable weapons or “ghost guns”. Therefore, we are not allowing sales or shipping of any of our items to the state of New Jersey. See N.J.S.A. 2C:39-9g

When I make a purchase on will I get a warranty with my purchase?

All products purchased on come with a lifetime warranty except the 80% lowers. For more information on refunds, returns and exchanges contact our customer support team.
