Manufacturer tells them they sent the brand new stripped receiver in question to Bob's Gun and Pawn.
Ol' Bob'll get a call later and be asked the same question. He'll say he sold a brand new stripped receiver to you.
There is no option on the 4473 for "virgin receiver".
hell if your worried about the intent factor, just buy 2 pistol recievers build one into a pistol and one into a long rifle, then you can swap all day long, and silently in your head tell the alphabet gang to go fukem selves if they check it out because their going to be wasting their time and you can just chuckle cause you know your in the right.

AHH I can swap the 8 screws on my ak pistol (SCREW BUILD) in about 10 minutes.Edit: The AK pistols cannot be swapped out like an AR, it requires drilling out rivets and changing the stock trunion in the receiver to make it into a rifle.
I also have a 16" barrel hunting pistol, both with compliance parts. that can have the rear trunion swaped in about 3 minutes in fact the trunion uses through bolts instead of a taped trunion. any AK reciver I buy (seldom) gets registerd as a pistol first. can always make it a rifle later.
with the sky high prices of kits these days I do a lot more swaping things around lately.
I wish I had registerd my 2 AR recivers as pistol when I bought them.
they are still striped virgin DPMS recivers. registerd in my name can they be registerd as pistol still. I thought they were registerd as a firearm not a striped reciver??????
not a big AR Pistol fan dont like the tube sticking out the back. BTW
Doesn't someone sell a recoil tube that is alot shorter than the normal pistol lengths?
The AR lower in question was logged as a long gun so i had to buy a new Pistol lower this one says PISTOL right under the S/N so there should be no problem now i wish i had just bought the pistol lower but with those two gun grabbers running for office maybe it was a good thing that i will have a few more AR's around
I have great respect for the AK. you have to when assholes shoot at you with them But I Love the AR more. Thankfully nether get mad if the other one gets more range time
i know if the dealer papers it has handgun , your okay. just don't buy lower w/ stock on it and try to have dealer paper it as pistol. factory records will show - rifle. the uppers with short barrels is good question if you have several ar rifles in house. i suggest buying reciever first and have papered as handgun. i wouldn't want to have short barrel uppers and no handgun receiver. the word intent would be used alot by atf. write atf and they will answer your questions. i argee that they should be cased with pistol . i suggest taking pictures of them with date on photo.
This subject is null and void at this time.
The new 4473s have a check box for "receiver" now.
