What is an 80 percent Lower?
80% lowers are lower receivers that are “80%” completed. They are classified as receiver blanks by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) and are not technically considered firearms. This means that by cutting and drilling your 80% lower at home, you can finish the receiver and turn it into a legally defined firearm.
Types of 80 Lowers
80% lowers are available in a wide array of calibers and firearm platforms. For example, you can purchase an AR-15 80% lower or one for an AR-10, a 1911 frame, or a polymer 80% pistol frame that are considered 80% receivers and are therefore not regulated the same as actual firearms. With these 80% lowers, you can build your own rifles and pistols yourself and ship them straight to your doorstep, no background checks or extra steps required!
Buying and Shipping 80 Lowers
Anyone can build a firearm themselves, and since an 80% lower is not a firearm, they are not subject to the same rules and restrictions. Buying one can be done without a background check, although some states have restricted the sale and ownership of them. For example, 80% lowers cannot be shipped to states such as California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Washington.
