when or if you get this resolved, please inform the members here of your experience. Further, if they have actually wronged you file a complaint against their business.

If someone could help me out and find a RELIABLE source that states that you CAN be 18 to buy a complete lower I'd really appreciate it...I'm on the ATF website right now looking around and its actually really tough haha.

You're walking a very thin line, technically you should be fine buying a completed lower but from what I have read and been told the atf is strict on all lowers because you can still turn a complete rifle lower into a pistol or sbr

Based on that it seems you are SOL ... have the lGS slap an upper on it and purchase a complete rifle

Yea im either going to do that or have someone over 21 come in with me and get it...they said that was an option to consider plus I think that would be better because I want to have this thing in my hands already!!!

its not new and its mostly correct. the exception is there is no special case for shotgun/rifle recievers still gotta be 21. even if its a single shot 50bmg reciever still gotta be 21

1st highlight - that would be a straw purchase ... and illegal

2nd highlight - if they suggested that idea I would seriously consider NEVER going back to them again. Cut your losses and have them return/resell the lower receiver. Find another LGS and "interview" them before you do business with them.
