    I dont get it, why pay 120 for 80% lowers when you can buy MEGA lowers fully done for a couple dollars more. Id much rather do that than pay someone to do some finish work.

    You can find FFL guys who will do the paper work on 10 of them to the same person for one fee.

    If you're paranoid, the forging has no serial number and no 4473 form with it. Not traceable to a firearms purchase.

    Its a good thing I live in New Mexico, I go to buy gun, I fill out form, they call NCIC or whoever and they say "long gun" or "short gun" and with my unique name in 30 seconds I walk to register and pick up gun.

    We are not required to register numbers nor anything other than swearing we are legaly able to own firearms.

    Anyone that has to jump through the hoops of getting a "license" and filling out paperwork to buy a gun while waiting 6 weeks for background checks and then having to register their firearm......... I feel for you.

    Agreed - having to license a purchase with long wait is not right. Aristotle was right long ago - that without the right of the citizens to bear arms, they were not citizens but subjects.

    As to the purchase, even with the NCIC, your firearm purchase has left a permanent paper trail - the 4473. It's as good as registered. And that is precisely why some bend their own blanks, mill 80% ARs, etc.

    Also some people do it to get a one of kind lower, for example a 50BMG single shot with a solid magwell, marked to match their upper.

    Yes if you just want a standard ar lower than why bother.

    Some folks also like the satisfaction of saying I built it, not bought it.

    Lots of different reasons just like different people, it's your money do with it as you wish.

    And we have a winner! The key difference between socialists and capitalists - a capitalist believes, "it's your money - do with it as you wish"! A socialist believes, "we know better than you how it should be spent, so we have to take it!"

    I can't find any, I have a suspicion that it has something to do with the BATF. None of the places which had them before seem to have them in stock, may just be the Obama scare or maybe some rule has changed.

    KT Ordnance doesn't have them listed.
    AR15Plus.com is OOS, their prices seem to be a bit out of control.
    DSArms shows them on their site, but if you try to order, it will be canceled due to back order.
    The tannery place has their pages with receivers just removed.

    Looks like FTF Industries has them listed, though they are a bit pricey, they send you the blank and a copy of the blueprints. I just emailed them to see if they actually have them in stock and if they would sell the blanks w/o the blueprints. If so, I'll post back with what the deal is.
