The Other BAG Purchase

Myself and another blogger (who will remain anonymous unless he tells me otherwise) will begin our WECSOG project of converting these lower receiver forgings into functional rifles. W00T!

    I still don’t understand how you can legally do that. Wouldn’t having a non-serialized gun get you into trouble?

  3. SayUncle Says:

    Perfectly legal and serial numbers don’t matter when you make it yourself. It is perfectly legal to make a firearm for personal use (can’t make it with the intent to sell without a license) but that may vary by state.

    They’ll have serial numbers though even though it’s not required but it keeps people from asking. They’ll be SU00001 through SU00004. Dunno what the other 4 will be numbered.

    Maybe you could sell the unfinished blanks to readers who want to follow along.


  5. SayUncle Says:

    I could. Or for $20, you can get your own here

    It’s perfectly legal to make a firearm for personal use, but I believe that you can’t ever transfer it to someone else under federal law.

  7. SayUncle Says:

    In snooping around the various build sites, it is perfectly legal to sell and transfer a homemade firearm. However, you will very likely not find any FFL holders willing to transfer it across state lines. And you can’t make them specifically to sell. I imagine the criteria are rather loosely defined in that are rather like they are in what constitutes an ‘unlicensed dealer’, which isn’t defined any where.

  8. kbarrett Says:

    FFL holders can accept it … they aren’t at risk here, you would be if the BATFE decides you are in the manufacturing business without paying the S.O.T.

    If it doesn’t have a serial number, the dealer will stamp one on and enter it into his book.

    Oh, and you can GIVE away a completed rifle to a friend infrastate … just don’t sell it.

  9. Justin Says:

    Just “gift them”. You better be careful. Some fucknut will read this and sic the BATF on your ass. You have your ACLU card handy?

  10. Ravenwood Says:

    So why go through all the trouble of finishing the lower when you can buy a completed lower for $90-$150?

  11. SayUncle Says:

    For the fun of it. And because it’s cool. Oh and $20 is less than $150.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
