If you read what the BATF says....NO

Many people try to bend what the rules are concerning this matter but if you just read the information and don't add anything to it you can't do anything with that receiver. It's made by you for you, period.

10 years in jail/$10,000 fine or both isn't worth dicking around with. Barracks lawyers will tell you anything but it's your ass that will swing. Don't take any chances, it's just not worth it.

If you buy the receiver through a FFL, it's like buying a gun. You can sell/trade/give it to anyone who may own it.

If you are making a firearm without the intent of making it to sell it , you are okay.

If you ARE making a firearm with the intent of selling it you are "in the business" of making firearms. If you do this without a license you are commiting a crime.

Now , if you make a firearm (without the intention of building it to sell) and you later decide to sell it , it would be legal to do so.

You know what your intent is. Don't do anything illegal.

Making for yourself = okay

Making to sell = illegal

Sorry to say but I disagree. I believe to many people work the BATF words to their liking but the words won't stand up in court. I would hate to have to defend myself using Triangle 66's definition against a Federal Prosecutor. I think I would be seeing 10 years in jail and or a $10,000 fine. Were not just talking about what color to make your AK, were taking about "JAIL TIME". Just my .02

Yeah, I believe it would be illegal to sell. However, if you were needing money or whatever, you could always reduce it back to a parts kit with about ten minutes work on a saw and Viola' no more firearm, just a pile of parts.
Yeah, yeah, I know, but the reciever is just a chunk of bent sheet steel, right?

I agree...
